There is a little snowman advent calendar that hangs in my entry. The tummy is full of pockets and you move a snowflake from pocket to pocket for the advent. Anyway, Bear LOVES it. He has been the one who has overtaken the advent calendars and he particularly loves this one.
Yesterday, he went and moved the snowflake and got all excited that it was the last pocket before Christmas. Seeing a nice little moment, I gave him a squeeze and said, “Buddy, when you are older and have your own family, I will give that Advent Calendar to you so that your kids can have as much fun with it as you have.”
He looks at me without skipping a beat and responds, “But you’ll be dead.” Uhhhhh, ok. Merry Christmas to me. I’ll be dead soon.
