For holiday suckers like me, there’s no better time of year. The mister wasn’t always such a huge fan and ever since we’ve started our young family…I’d like to think I’ve had something to do with his
forced gentle coercion over from Scrooge-dom to all that is jolly and good.
It could be worse.
It’s not like I’m torturing him or anything. The best part is watching him actually enjoy it all through our young childrens’ eyes. This year we’ve hit the big-time in that. Wyndham just turned 3 and Abby — well, I don’t think she really knows what all of this Santa business is about, but she sure knows not to touch the tree and LOVES her some Santa and reindeer hat/prop action.
That’s my girl.
Oh, but Wyndham. This is the first year that he is fully engaged into all of this awesome. He talks incessantly and excitedly about Santa coming, howls with delight over all of the twinkling lights bedecking the homes on our block and literally claps his hands with glee every-time I introduce a new (to him) tradition revolving around the holidays.
Kid just can’t get enough and neither can I. This is the stuff I’ve been waiting for. This is the magic that I’m going to revel in. Now and when they’re grown and gone. These are most of the traditions that turn my holiday crank...what are yours?
