Musings of a Marfan Mom

Santa Prep


I think I’m going to take the boys to see Santa early this afternoon, after speech and occupational therapy. The Menininho has expressed an interest in going and this way it shouldn’t be so crowded. So, this morning I decided I should prepare M for how a conversation with Santa might go.

“I’ll be Santa! Hohoho have you been a good boy this year?”
“And what would you like for Christmas?”
“Hand dryers!”
“And what would your little brother like for Christmas?”
“Ummm….hand dryers!”

“Ok M, but do you think there are other things people might want for Christmas? What do you think Daddy wants for Christmas?”

“Want hand dryers Daddy?”
“No, I want other things for Christmas.”
“Want hand dryers Mommy?”
“No, I want toys for Christmas. Don’t you want toys for Christmas?”
“No. Hand dryers.” < thinks for a minute > “Yes!”
“What kind of toys would you like?”
“Toys R Us!”
“Yes, some toys come from Toys R Us. What toys from there would you like?”
< thinks >
