Maybe I Pushed Too Hard

It's official. Christmas is less than 30 days away. Scream with me now, people.

Last year I foolishly started the tradition of having Santa send a letter to Jack and Luke. The letters were very cute, with an official North Pole post mark and kind words from Santa praising the boys on personal accomplishments.

The letters also referred to the things the boys thought they would be receiving from Santa (e.g., I know that you will be a good boy the rest of the year so I can bring you the Nintendo DS you want). Thankfully, Luke couldn't read yet, allowing me to modify this part of his letter as I read aloud from FurReal Parrot to RoboQuad. I guess that's a risk you take with these letters, like buying Halloween costumes too early.

I'd like to continue the tradition this year, but Jack cannot decide what he wants from Santa. I keep making suggestions, and he keeps saying that he just doesn't know what he wants. And I can't very well have him receive a letter that says I know that you will be a good boy the rest of the year so I can bring you the insert gift here you want.

So I keep asking. And asking. And asking. And I got my answer.

"I want suction cups for my hands and feet so I can climb up walls."

So his letter from Santa will read:

I know that you will be a good boy the rest of the year so I can bring you the suction cups for your hands and feet, the stitches for your head, the ice pack for your butt, the cast for your leg, the splint for your arm, and the case of wine for your mom.

So, does anyone know where I can find some suction cups?

Hmmm. Sink plungers? Also useful for impersonating Daleks.

Very funny!

You might use the opportunity to explain that Santa needs to know what he wants...no indecision is allowed.

Suction cups...talk to the glass service company.

I'd ask for boxes of wine for these occasions...bottles are just too impractical.

LOL! It is not to early for him to learn that Santa sometimes runs short on some items... this year it just happened to be suction cups! LOL!

GOOD LUCK!
