My 3-year-old daughter has never fully understood Christmas. Sure, Audrey enjoyed the presents, treats, and lights in the past, but there was no real anticipation for her. All the fun just happened, and that was enough. Now that she’s three however, a strong sense of excitement has set in. She knows Christmas is coming. She knows she will get presents. She knows she will get candy and treats. And she knows Santa Claus is coming. It’s fun! But it also got me wondering…
How much about Santa Claus does she really understand? I sat down with her yesterday to find out.
An at-home parent typically has one choice every day: leave the house or stay at home? Staying is nice because you can go without pants all day and watch The Price is Right. Going out is nice as well because, you know, nature. But while going out often involves diaper bags, strollers, and frantic store aisle chases, those unpleasantries aren’t the worst things about leaving the house.
It’s the fact I’ll have to speak with other parents.
