I remember making a Christmas “wish list” every year when I was a kid. I also remember how many times I’d add things to my list that I knew Santa wouldn’t bring … but just in case I added them anyway. My two youngest sons (Connor & Cooper) still make wish-lists, while our oldest (Taylor & Parker) just give us a few ideas to choose from. Like always, this year I did find humor in some of my kids’ Christmas wish-list requests. For example….
- This year my 9 year-old son, Cooper, had a list that contained the usual things like games, a bike and legos. I did laugh that at the bottom of his list he’d included “a BIG bag of Twix candy” with the word “Pleeeeeeeease!” following the request.
- Connor’s list contained a video game, but also included a few clothes, which is a sign that he’s growing up. The part of his wish-list that I found to be interesting was when he wrote: “A Gerbil” and also included a big “Pleeeeeeeease!” after it. I just laughed at that request, knowing that hell would freeze over before Lea would ever willingly invite any living rodent of any form into her home.
- And then last night I walked through the kitchen and died laughing when I saw a new last-minute Christmas wish-list scribbled on a napkin and placed on the refrigerator next to the others. It was from Parker, my 19 year-old college son who’s home on break. It simply said…
I guess he wasn’t too crazy about coming home for Christmas and finding 2% and skim milk to go along with his cereal.
Have a very Merry Christmas and many blessings from the Morgan family to your family.
