A Season of Hope

So - yes - here it is - the Christmas Season.

and no

I have not had much time to post because I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

Yes - there is an end in sight and it is called December 15th!

Then I will be irritatingly up to date on my blogging but for now - you get the snippits of Holly thinking that I can dash off. :)

Hope that is ok with you!

Anyway - I digress..............

What I think is so funny about Christmas time is the sense of hope that little kids have. Now I am not talking of hope for a brighter tomorrow or world peace or a greater sense of enlightenment or love - I am talking about the hope.......

That they are actually gonna get some stuff!!!!!!!!!

I mean - these kids really have a shot of saying, "I want that" and it actually happening.

I have a strict no toy purchasing rule in stores throughout the year - don't ask - not gonna happen - don't even bother asking me - still not gonna happen. We do not impulse shop toys - period. I mean - can you imagine the precedent? If I let one time one of the three (ages 7,5, and 3 if you don't remember) just get to have something? It would be a total disaster!!!!!!

Well - this leads me to my point. My kids are so excited that they not only have a shot but that they get to voice their wishes.

EVERY store - EVERY where and I mean everywhere - we were in the car wash place a couple of days ago and my 3 year old saw some shammies with a cool car on them and looked at me and said,

"Mommy - put it on the list".

"Mommy I want that for Christmas!"

"Oh Mommy - I want that on the list!"

Every commercial - every time - "oh oh oh Mommy I want that - put it on the list!"

I answer - every time with "uh huh - ok - sure" or some variation of that.

Now every once in a while I will say - "hey wait a minute - don't we already have that?"

and then they say,

"oh yeah - but if we didn't - we would totally put it on the list!"
