If you thought Declan’s Christmas list from the other day was hilarious, wait till you hear this.
After school drop off, I was chatting with the other moms and we were comparing all the Christmas crap we had left to do. And trust me, we all have a lot to do. Just like you, I am sure. The good news is I have talked several of my loved ones into accepting, well, love, from us this season, so my load is much lighter than it usually is right about now.
But as we groused, my friend Bess piped up with a doosy. She described how her very bright and very inquisitive daughter, Lulu, has been questioning the existence of Santa Claus. Luckily, Bess has been able to lightly brush the questions away, knowing a fabulous Wii system is sitting in the closet just waiting to be placed under the tree on Christmas Eve.
But as I said, Lulu is bright. She came to her mom earlier this week and told her she only had ONE request for Christmas. Just ONE.
Bess sucked in her breath, wondering if the ONE request would be something other than the fabulous Wii that had been so hard to procure (seeing as she did NOT win one from this very blog.)
“What is your ONE request for Christmas, sweetie?”
“Mama, The ONLY thing I would like for Christmas is a photo of Santa. In our living room when he visits our house on Christmas Eve night.”
Little does Lulu know Bess has friends. Friends who are good with Photoshop.
