    Default My sons Christmas list

    My son, who is in 1st grade, proudly wrote his first letter all by himself to Santa today. He hadn't gotten very far when dad asked him to help stack firewood, so I went in and peeked at it.

    "Dear Santa

    This is what I want

    A doly with a hors tralr with 9 windos"

    (for those who don't read 1st grade, that's a dually with a horse trailer with 9 windows)

    When he came in I asked him why that was the first thing on his list.

    "It's for you, mom!"

    If your son has some pull with Santa, I wonder if I could borrow him! What a great kid you have there. I hope you find the correct truck and trailer in your driveway Christmas morning.

    Mini MO got her pony already, and that was all she wanted for Christmas. Before we got her the pony, I told her it would be hard for Santa to put a pony in his bag of toys. She suggested that Santa could just unhitch a reindeer and put the pony in the harness. She is a smart cookie.

    Since she got the pony, all she wants is "pony stuff," all in pink of course. A cooler, boots, saddle pads, bucket, brushes, halter, etc. I asked if she wanted anything else, and she said she didn't want Santa to hurt his back carrying too much stuff. Aren't kids a hoot?

    So sweet!

    My 1st grader will have just trains on his letter that we will write today....nuttin for mom...

    Although I must give him his dues; on my birthday, he made sure to have me help him ride his pony. He hadn't ridden her or shown interest in quite a while (months), so when I asked why he wanted to ride, he said "it's a birthday present for you!"



    He hasn't asked to ride since (August)....

    Now you have to figure out a way to keep the letter and still mail it to Santa!

    Our kids surprise us sometimes, don't they? We went to my son's Grade 3 "Three Way Conference" (apparently parent/teacher meeting is outdated, now it is a "celebration of your child's learning") and for the assignment "Your Favourite Summer Memory" my son wrote "My mom let me ride her big horse. He was sweaty. My legs got wet"

    I let my son sit on my horse bareback and walk him around to cool him out after a ride and I had not thought much of it but apparently it was his favourite summer memory!
    I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    What a sweet kiddo!

    My nieces and nephew aren't that considerate. They have 4 Christmases, with more toys than they could ever possibly use, most of which end up broken or lost before the day is over, and they STILL cry when someone didn't get them as many presents as they think they should get.

    Spoiled little brats. We tend to take them somewhere rather than buying them more stuff they just discard anyway.

    That's the kind of [only] child I want someday [when I am in my early 30's]!
