Nearly Wordless Wednesday: A Tiny Misunderstanding

I wondered why my little Santaphobe was suddenly on board with paying a visit. He was suddenly so excited to see Santa. “Go see Santa and sit on his lap!” became his favorite phrase over the weekend.

  1. Loving the photo! It made me think of my oldest’s first photo with Santa. She was only around 6 months old, and she refused to sit directly on Santa’s lap. Instead, she sat on my lap, and I sat on Santa, who pinched my bum!

    I say send the photo out!!
