This past weekend we took the twins to see Santa. They are now old enough to know the drill and have eagerly awaited their chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas this year. We’ve had a couple of good Santa moments and one bad Santa moment in the past three years so we didn’t know what to expect this time around.
We had been practicing for the past couple of weeks what they were going to ask Santa for this Christmas. Swee’Pea was certain she wanted a “Princess Barbie with a Pink, Purple and Yellow dress.” TheMonk, on the other hand, was emphatic that he wanted a “Power Ranger Motorcycle.”
TheMonk was so convincing, in fact, that
I ran out and bought Santa already had reserved a Power Rangers Motorcycle for TheMonk this year.
That’s when TheMonk got slick. The day we were to visit Santa, he suddenly changed his tune. Instead of Power Rangers Motorcycle, he now wanted a “Talking robot.” Okaaaaaaaay. Now what’s a Santa to do? Sure enough, when he got seated on the big man’s lap, he immediately got down to business and told Santa that he wanted a “talking robot.” The little guy is slick.
When it was Swee’Pea’s turn, not only would she not smile at all (only giving a little smirk when asked to smile) she was not even interested in telling Santa what she wanted. Finally, TheMonk approached Santa and told Swee’Pea that “She wants a Barbie Princess with a Pink, purple and yellow dress!” Swee’Pea nodded in agreement while Santa told Swee’Pea that he only had three of those left but he was going to save one just for her.
Which would be good because I have yet to find a “Barbie Princess with a Pink, Purple and Yellow dress.” I sure hope that Santa guy comes through.
