So, we're putting up our tree and decorating the house this week, and trying to get into the Christmas spirit. I have felt so bad the last few days that it's been a really slow process getting the tree decorated. Yesterday, I incorporated my little one's help. I ask him if he's excited about Christmas, and he says yes. Then I turn to the subject of taking a picture with Santa...should have left that one alone!
I ask him if he is going to take a picture with Santa and sit on his lap and tell him what he wants for Christmas. He tells me that he is kinda a little bit scared of Santa. I tried to explain to him that it's just an regular man dressed in a suit so that everyone will know it's okay for him to come down their chimney's and leave presents. I explain that everyone knows him by the red suit he wears and knows that he is a safe visitor. He grasped on to that fact well, and tells me that he will sit in his lap and take a picture this year.
Then, he has to go and ruin the whole 'Christmas' thing for me with his last comment. He turns around and says, "Mommy when I sit in Santa's lap, I'll just ask him if I can have all the toys you have in the closet! Those are the ones I want!" I tell you, I am crushed that he found my hiding place!!!
