From my blog, December 6, 2009.
I took the kids to see Santa yesterday (on Saturday - I realize I am insane). When we finally got up to him, my 3 year old wanted to go first.
"Hello there!" said Santa. "What would you like me to bring you for Christmas?"
Without missing a beat, A said, "A pencil sharpener!!"
Santa paused for a moment, and said that in all his years, he didn't think he had ever heard that Christmas wish. Leave it to one of my kids!
When he was done talking to A, he turned to I and said, "And what would you like, young man? An ink pen?"
Who knew Santa had such a sense of humor!
