Leah did OK too. She was annoyed when I set her down in Santa’s lap, but after a bit of protest she ignored him and went back to her lolly-pop. Santa was probably annoyed that I sat a sticky one year old in his lap! He probably labeled me as one of THOSE parents.
The kids each got a stuffed polar bear wearing a Christmas hat and scarf from Santa. Now, if you’ve been following our family saga, you know that Isaiah’s favorite buddy is a beanie-baby sized monkey named Mee-Mee. Chris’ mom stumbled across a bigger version of the monkey, made by the same company. So when she sent it to Isaiah, we told him it was Mee-Mee’s dad. When we asked Isaiah what Mee-Mee wanted for Christmas, he said, “Mee-Mee want his mom!” We tried to figure out how we could pull that off.
So back to the polar bear. I was talking with him about his new bear and he informed me that it was Mee-Mee’s mom! I asked if that meant she was Mee-Mee’s dad’s wife. Isaiah thought about it for a minute and then said, “Yeah, he is!” So Mee-Mee has his mom!
