Christmas Day 22 - Cash Register Boy

"Mom, when I get old enough to get a job, I know that I DON'T want to be a Cash Register Boy!  I want to just walk around the store and help people find stuff and show them how all the toys work...guess I could be a sales boy!"

Christmas - Day 19 - One Minute

Today, at my sons school, they were having his favorite lunch, beef cutlet..  He begged me to come eat lunch with him...said I would not regret it because beef cutlet was GREAT!  I asked, "What time do you go to lunch?"  "Mom, lunch is at 11:15 but you get there by 11:00 so you'll have about one minute to park and get signed in."

Christmas - Day 18 - Santa Calls

Tonight while eating dinner, son did not want to eat everything on his plate...all of a sudden our house phone rung (which never happens)...it was SANTA CLAUSE!  He wanted to speak to my son.  Son told him he didn't like to eat the chicken in chicken and dumplins.  Santa told him to eat the chicken...that's the best part!  Son said "Yes sir, I will"    We've made a picture of him eating everything in his plate and will be forwarding it to Santa cause we're hoping we're not on the naughty list.

After the call.....son is FULL OF EXCITEMENT!

"Santa said he'd see me on Christmas Eve and to BE GOOD!"

"Santa wants us to fix him chicken and dumplins on Christmas Eve.  He said he gets plenty of milk and cookies."

"Can we leave Santa a gift?"
"What kind of gift did you have in mind, son?"
"Well, I'm not sure but maybe we could get him a new red hat!"

"Mom, I looked at caller ID and it said wireless....do you think Santa has an Iphone?"

"Oh, dang....I should've asked him if I was on the good list or the naughty list before he hung up...maybe he'll call back before Christmas."

Going out for dinner...eating at a salad bar...
"Son, do you need me to help you?"
"No, that's ok, I got it!  I'm a pro Salad Fixer!"

Christmas - Day 14 - Santa's Workshop

My sons teacher at school is a strict disciplinarian...each week the kids are given "3 scoops" (ice cream)...The goal is to still have all your scoops by the end of the week.  If you misbehave, she will remove a scoop.  This means you don't get any ice cream on Friday if you loose all 3 scoops that week.  This week, of course, is the week before Christmas.  My child is WILD WITH EXCITEMENT...This week, by Wednesday, he had lost all his scoops....Also, this week the school has "Santa's Workshop" where the kids can go and shop for their family.  I had sent money with him on Wednesday to school and he picked gifts for me, his dad, his sister and his grandparents.  He was soooo proud of everything...As I said earlier, he lost all his scoops by Wednesday and we have a rule at our house that if he looses all 3 scoops at school, when he gets home, he gets 3 licks with a paddle...He knows the rules...As his dad prepared to spank him, he said, "But daddy...I bought you a gift today!"

Christmas - Day 10 - Re-gifting

"Mom, can we wrap this tonight for my sister?"
"Aww, that's so sweet of you, but that's YOUR gift.  Remember, you got this yesterday at a Christmas Party."
"I know...but I don't want it; and I thought (sister) would like it....and, I REALLY just want to wrap something!"

Christmas Day 9 - Sunday School Party

I teach 1st and 2nd grade kids at my church.  Today was our Christmas Party.  The kids were wild with excitement!    We took the kids out to eat after "big church" then came back to our church to play games and open gifts.   During the excitement of everything, one little boy told me...

"I beat up the guys at school and then get sugar from the girls at school."

Christmas - Day 3 - Santa's phone number

Last night "Santa" called my husbands cell phone...he wanted to speak to son to see if he had been good and see what he wanted for Christmas...son talked to him for a while and was very happy to talk to him...when they hung up, son said, "Hey daddy, let me see your phone!"  "Why do you need my phone?"  "I bet Santa doesn't know I have a cell phone so I though I'd put his number in my phone so I CAN CALL HIM if I need anything!"
