It just dawned on my this morning that christmas is next week! I've bought the baby 2 things and I'll probably get her a couple more. I try and not go all out for her since I know she will get gifts at her moms house too. She gets 2 Christmases every year. More importantly I need to give away some of her old toys, I need my basement to look less like a day care. Plus I get a tax write off, it's a win win.
Me and The baby put up the tree the other day. I think 5 is the prime age for this kind of stuff. She was super excited when I picked her up. I said we go home and decorate the tree and her eyes lit up. We got home and my neighbors were putting up lights outside, she was just so exited. The whole idea of lights and Christmas makes her happy now. I don't remember if it was like this last year, I swear last year it was all about the gifts, I mean she still says she wants any and everything as a gift she just seems to understand the season better.
I going to take her to go see santa this year. She has never been, she never seemed interested in it before but this year. Last week she asked me:
"Do you know Santa?"
Of course I answered "Yes I know him VERY well"
I wanted to say "I AM Santa!" but I'll let her believe in him a lil while longer. So between that and me seeing this video
I have to take her to see santa this year. If you think I'm beyond using the baby for a laugh you have not been reading long enough.
