The first real snowfall is predicted for tonight.
Little Guy thinks that snow means Christmas and that Santa is coming tonight. He imagination is helped by the fact that we visited Santa and Mrs. Claus at my lake's Christmas celebration today.
Little Guy is very worried that Santa will not be bringing him any presents because he broke my new solar spotlight.
I did try to allay his fears and let him know that he is a great kid and Santa will be bringing him gifts. Still, a little part of me likes to play the Santa card. A little guilting into getting along with his sister won't cause any permanent damage. Right?
"He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake.
He knows when you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!"
Note to Lake Group: Please don't dress-up the camp's Silly Willy Man as Santa. Yes, he looked great, BUT...my Girlie is very smart and she immediately guessed that Silly Willy Man was dressed as Santa. Major buzz kill for Girlie and Mummy got a little teary realizing that her Girlie is growing up.
