He's starting to get the picture. All those genius marketing people are earning their salaries right now. Because my son is ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS. Every commercial, every ad, every single thing he sees... he wants it on his Christmas list.
Yesterday, I was driving home when we pulled up next to a motorcyle at a stop light.
OOOOHHHHH! I WANT THAT!
That! That motorcyle!
Buddy, be serious.
I AM being serious. I want that motorcycle for Christmas. Can you put it on my Christmas list, mommy? Please please please please PLEASE!!!???
Surely you know why I cannot buy you a motorcyle for Christmas, right?
(long pause to think)
Oh, yeah, because it won't fit in the package, huh?

11 months out of the year, he sings:
He-He-He-He saved me!
I've got the joy of the Lord.
But this December, he's belting out:
Looks like it may be time to visit the library - I'll be looking for books with "The True Meaning of Christmas" in the title.
What's coming out of the mouths of your babes this month?
