Pouty: Mommy..we are going to have SO much fun on Christmas! I can’t wait!!
Me: I know Pouty! I can’t wait either. What are you looking forward to the most.
Pouty: My crayon maker.
Me: Pouty…we talked about that. It wasn’t on your list. If Mommy doesn’t know, Santa won’t bring it. He only brings things I say are OK. And really….Mommy’s not sure that she wants the house to smell like melted crayons. We’re still going to wait and see about that for your birthday. Maybe.
Pouty: Don’t worry Mommy. I’ll be happy with what I get….but I’ll keep praying and wishing and maybe Santa will get it any way (picture tightly clenched eyes and praying hands)
Me: OK Pouts….Good luck with that.
I’m not caving….at least not yet…..I don’t think……
