The kids have been a little crazier than normal this past week. Holiday excitement, a little more sugar than normal, and not enough sleep all have a hand in it, I’m sure. But in the midst of all the chaos, they still have found ways to make me laugh. One of the latest?
They were in the toddler’s room playing trains. As a Christmas gift from one of my friends he just got a new recycling car for his trains to pull, and he actually let his big sister see it for a few minutes.
When Monkey asked for the train car back, I heard his sister say, “If you don’t share your toys you won’t get any new toys for Christmas. Santa will bring you coal.”
I was worried that this comment would make him upset, and finished walking down the hallway to assure him that wasn’t true, but when I stepped into his room I heard him say, “I already have coal.” He was holding up the coal car that his little red train pulls.
I guess getting coal for Christmas isn’t all bad if you have trains!
Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful weekend and a very Merry Christmas! We will be heading to my parents’ house for Christmas Eve (a little unexpectedly) and then heading to the in-laws for dinner on Christmas… Busy, busy, busy! Until then, be listening for those words of childhood wisdoms!
