|My dear Aunt Clause. She’s too cute.|
When you have a mother who sews you get a lot of perks. For instance you might get a special visit from Mr. and Mrs. Clause because Mrs. Clause needs a new apron and she has some unique specifications (as you would expect). Most children would consider this to be a huge bonus… most children… Indeed, my oldest son was stoked and chatted with the famous pair for quite a while. The neighbor children, while cautious, were soon won over by the jolly man’s charms. However, there was Conster, and he was NOT amused. He was so far from enthused that I would venture to say he may be traumatized, not the kind of traumatized that would require psychiatric help but certainly the kind that will dis-sway him from ever having a picture taken with Mickey Mouse.
This is what he did the entire time Santa and Mrs. Clause were at my house. He gave the impression that he was asleep, as he refused to open his eyes at all. However, since his grip was tighter then death, I was fairly certain he was awake. No amount of encouragement or begging would get him to open his eyes. Poor thing. I hope that Mr. and Mrs. Clause aren’t offended, I’m sure they’re used to this kind of thing and really three out of four kids isn’t bad.
What about you? Any traumatized Christmas memories? I find the best thing to assuage the pain of creepy santa’s past is to let us laugh with you and presents. Leave a comment on this post telling us your funny holiday memories to enter to win one of these Christmas gifts. I’ll pick a winner on boxing day December 26th because it’s a very british thing and I’m still finding myself taken with Anglophila
|Some goodies for you; aprons, pincushions, nestlaces.
Plenty to go around so leave a comment.
