Out of the Mouth of Babes: Christmas Edition

Parker: Santa probably has helpers that speak Spanish for when he visits a different universe.

I regularly catch Grayden reading Christmas books to himself. Every time it includes the line, "Dash away, dash away, dash away all!" I love hearing my two year old yell this out.

Reid: When it's Christmas, I'm not gonna pout, cry or hit people.

When singing a Christmas song at church....The chorus was Hosanna! Hosanna! But Parker sang it, "Oh Santa! Oh Santa!" (The rest of the song was about the nativity.)

We took the kids to see Santa and kept asking if they want to sit on Santa's lap. And after we asked them if they had fun sitting on Santa's lap. For a few days, Grayden thought that Santa's name was 'Santa's Lap.' We'd see a picture of him and Gray would point out...there's Santa's Lap. We cleared that up.

All my crazies sing Jingle Bells: Oh MUCH fun it is to ride...

Parker: Do you know what my favorite word is? St. Nick. It's my favorite word and my favorite Christmas thing.

Gray doesn't have any memories of past Christmases. (Which is really fun...it's like he's experiencing it all for the first time and is ultra excited about EVERYTHING!) But despite no memory of Christmas, when we pulled out Christmas decorations, the only thing he could identify was baby Jesus. He recognized Him immediately. Small kids are like that. And it's really sweet.

Parker after reading The Night Before Christmas: There's gonna be sugar plums in my head tonight!

Everything you wrote was so funny! Gray saying "dash away..." is pretty cute.

And I'm glad you cleared up "Santa's lap" too. Such funny kids.

You didn't tell me all of these cute things this morning. I'm so glad you posted them. Tell Parker there's going to be sugar plums in my head tonight too.
