We might have gone to see Santa almost a month ago. Adelaide saw the Amazon wish list I was putting together for her, and immediately became obsessed with one particular toy. I explained that we’d go visit Santa and she’d tell him what she wanted, and on Christmas he’d bring it to our house and leave it under the tree.
She immediately wanted to go see Santa. It was all she could talk about.
So we saw Santa. We wrote him a letter. We talk about him constantly. What a change from last year when she cried and refused to sit on his lap.
Every year the holidays get more and more exciting. I love seeing her experience the Christmas magic and excitement of the season. We’re still working on understanding the actual Christmas story, but it’s a bit harder for a 2 year old to comprehend than “Santa brings me gifts”. We’ll get there.
I can’t wait to see her joy on Christmas morning. I just hope Santa didn’t forget the batteries.
