It is also important that I capture the kids’ Christmas wish lists this year.

Jack:
  • Super Smash Brothers for the Wii U
  • 100 billion dollars (he is willing to accept 100 million dollars)
Nora:
  • A Hatchimal
  • LOL dolls
  • Sisters 8 series
Ann Marie:
  • A stuffed puppy
  • A hamster. Not a REAL one, a STUFFED one.
  • One hundred dollars
Finally, I took the three oldest kids Christmas shopping today. We stopped for lunch at Panera. After placing our order, Ann Marie had a minor meltdown about Nora’s moving her hat and coat to a different seat. A woman came up and said, “Excuse me?” Earlier, Ann Marie had bonked her mouth on the shopping cart and I only found out because a woman saw it and explained to me what happened, so I was primed to think that Ann Marie had again hurt herself and I had missed it. I paused in my tending to the weeping Ann Maire to see what the woman wanted. This is what she said.

“I noticed your daughter is in distress, and I was wondering if you’d like me to teach her some meditation techniques?”
I am not making that up even a little bit.

Well. That's...something.

(I love the thankful tree idea!)

I have a little lump in my throat over Nora listing Teddy on one of her leaves.

MEDITATION TECHNIQUES

Yay for blogging!!!

The lists are adorable. I hope Santa has some experience printing money.

Meditation? Oh my GOODNESS. (Did she really think you would say... yes?)

Jessica said...
