This morning, Trent's preschool had "Breakfast with Santa". For the last couple days, we practiced what they were going to ask Santa. We got up early this morning, showered and I dressed the kids in their Christmas gear. Everyone was excited and knew exactly what they were going to ask Santa for.
By the time we got there, walked into the room and saw Santa, things had changed.
"Trent! Go sit on Santa's lap and tell him what you want!"
"Ho ho ho", said Santa
"NO! Baby Kat goes first." I could tell there was some panic in his voice.
Ok, so I picked up Baby Kat. She started crying right away. She knew she was going on that guy's lap. She completely forgot to tell him what she wanted, which by the way was a new baby.
I love the look on Santa's face. He was probably talked into be Santa at the very last minute. He looks a little frustrated. Baby Kat was only his third "customer" and there was a HUGE line behind her.
I really tried to convince Trent to sit on Santa's lap. He wanted nothing to do with that. So, I reminded him of last year when he just held Santa's hand and told him what he wanted. Layout of last year's Santa visit
"Oh, ok", he said. I could tell he suddenly remembered and that it was ok.
I walked him up to Santa and he grabbed Santa's hand.
"Well, what would you like for Christmas this year?" Santa asked.
"I want a SPIDERMAN!" Trent spoke like they were old buddies.
They talked a few seconds more and then it was over.
It must have really worn Trent out because he drank about three full glasses of apple juice without even breathing.
Well, so the Spiderman is a new thing. I thought it was Darth Vadar. I'll have to go out tomorrow and see what is left on the shelves.
