Overheard at Christmastime

Thing 2 was busy describing all the reasons why one of our decorative Santa Claus figures couldn't possibly be the real Santa. For example, he has a magic wand, he has no feet, and he's lined with a large plastic cone for starters.

Thing 1 then turns to me and says:

"If you were Santa, wouldn't you look in the mirror and stop eating milk and cookies? Why can't he be a skinny guy that eats carrots and water?"

Carrots and water wouldn't give him a belly that shook like a bowl full of jelly, though.

and carrots and water are gross compared to milk and cookies, too.

Lindsay said...

I agree with Emily!! Who wants to nibble a carrot when you can gobble a cookie??!

Plus, if he were super skinny, he would be much less comfy when you sit on his lap. Just saying. :)

Also overheard: "I think Jesus is Santa." Bwahahahaha! (Thing 2)

I should sit outside their bedroom door at night more often. When I pass by now and then, I hear such gems.
