So that’s how it works

Thomas is busy crafting a Christmas list this morning at the kitchen table. Spelling is not currently his strongest academic skill so I think this is a worthwhile activity. As Christmas lists tend to do, this one is getting long. He’s sitting here with his head in his hands thinking, thinking, thinking about what else to add to it and the longer he thinks the more elaborate the requests become. When I suggested that maybe the list had grown enough for today he asked why. I told him that there was a limit to the number of things that he would receive for Christmas and he grew very serious.




“Mom. You do not need to worry about this. I know that these things are very expensive but the great thing is that at Christmas that’s Santa’s problem. You should ask for some things too!”


I think he still believes.

He either believes or knows a good thing when he sees it and will keep YOU believing that he believes! :) Oh, and btw, I must say I really don't like having to match the illegible words at the bottom to prove I'm not a robot. I sometimes have to try 10 times before I actually can read it and match it. Does anyone else have this problem???

Fan for the bedroom is killing me! So funny! :) Aunt Maria can take something on that list...Nerf gun perhaps? :)
