Julia was on a huge kick about Santa tonight. As I laid down in her bed and she sat up talking and talking and talking, she told me a lot of things about what we could do with Santa. She was desperate to see him.
Jules: I make him a basket with lots of goodies for Santa. I say 'Santa, here are some things for you' - 'oh thank you julia' he would say. And I would say 'you're welcome!' and he would say 'this is awesome!'
Then we could go visit him. I want to see Santa! I want to see Santa! I want Presents!!!!!!!
Me: Julia, Santa won't be here for a long time, but you do have a birthday coming up and you'll get a few presents then.
Jules: Oh yeah!!! I would like a doll, another doll, a Dora doll (as she is saying this, she is picking up the dolls she wants). I want them at my birthday so they could sing Happy Birthday to me! And I would like my other doll (she walks across the room to get it and throws it on her bed). That would be fun!!! I would go phhhhhhhhhh and blow out the candles on my cake. And eat it.
Me: That will be fun! You'll be three!!
Jules: one two three four five six.
Silence for one second.
Jules: I want to see Santa. Where is he?
Me: He's at the North Pole.
Jules: We could go see him! We could take Grandpa's car and Grandma's car and we could drive to go see him. It would not be hard. We could do it!
Me: It's a very long drive, Jules.
Jules: We could do it!! I want to see Santa!!!!!
