This year, Little Bird made it known she really wanted to meet Santa Claus. Live and in person.
When I heard that Mr. Claus himself might make an appearance at her preschool excursion to see a children’s performance of the Nutcracker, I went along to help the two of them get acquainted. Plus, I really wanted to watch her greet Santa for the first time!
Overall this visit went much more smoothly than our visit with Santasquatch. At first, Little Bird made several attempts–and retreats–before she landed in Santa’s lap.
Sitting in his lap was a BIG deal for a number of reasons, one of which is that Santa was the first exception we’ve made about hugging, kissing, or lap sitting with someone who is not family. In our household “Hugs are for family and high-fives are for friends.” She watched as most of her school friends went first. And then…
Check to see if he’s real. Yep.
Touch his left hand. So far, so good.
How about the right hand?
Is he naughty or nice? Seems nice enough.
So I have this question about the North Pole…
Take the road less traveled, Beth
