"that is weird." -tess
"I'm not so sure Santa is going to see Jack. I'm just not so sure about that. It doesn't look good." -bram
"Santa is NOT real." (panicked look by the little a-hole.) "I'm JUST KIDDING! Santa is SO SO SO real." -bram
"so real." -tess
coco: "Tess, is Santa going to come see you?"
coco: "What is Santa going to bring you?
coco: "I know. But what kind of presents?"
coco: "But what kind of presents? What will be in the presents?"
(she is still a little unclear on this whole santa/presents/tree/chimney/elf on the shelf situation.)
"I bet Santa was so happy the day Jesus was born." -bram
"Jesus was born." -tess
"I know the guys brought Jesus three gifts. But Santa brought him tons more. So Santa is bringing 100 presents. Not three. No way." -bram
"I want to punch Santa in the face." -bram
"punch Santa in the face." -tess
"that Santa is stupid!" -bram
"is stupid." -tess
"Can you talk to Santa about bringing me some lasers?" -bram
"I don't know who that guy thinks he's foolin'." -bram (some weird guy holding a sale sign outside of a furniture store, dressed kind of like santa.)
"Don't worry about it, Santa knows what I'm talking about." -bram
coco: "Tess, what do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?"
coco: "What KIND OF PRESENTS?"
coco: (defeated) "Forget it."
The above Santaisms have been recorded by yours truly over the past several weeks. Tess isn't quite catching on. At all. Sister is usually just reciting what her nutso brother says. And Bram is testing the waters with the whole good vs. evil thing and the actual receiving of the gifts.
It would be a little funny if Christmas morning, I actually did put just a lump of coal in his stocking. Watch him panic for about 30 minutes, while I sit back and enjoy my coffee and Baileys. And then bring out his presents and say, "JUST KIDDING! Santa wanted me to teach you a tiny lesson."
Hmmmm.....that would really be funny. I wonder if the Hubs would be on board for that little lesson.
ta-ta for now!
