For a few weeks now Losahina has been talking about her hoped for gifts. That is normal enough, right? But she isn’t saying “I want such and such for Christmas.” No, she words it like this: “Christmas is going to give me such and such!” Everything from a song she really likes to a particular food that she wants at the moment. The list would be quite long, if I actually was keeping track. Because, well, frankly, I am not going to be giving her the song by Evanescence called “Bring Me To Life,” although all Losahina knows it by is “the song that goes like this: “Wake me up inside.” To do that justice you really do need to imagine a little high-pitched 3yo girl trying to sing that last part. That is her most insistant request, too. LOL.
Today I heard Losahina singing the same line to a Christmas Carol over and over. I didn’t think much of it until I actually started paying attention to why it didn’t sound quite right.
“We wish you could marry Christmas” was the actual phrase I heard repeated throughout the day today. It made me smile each time. It sounds to me like she really thinks that Christmas is a person, not a celebration. With all of the stories we are reading, and the movies we are watching I’m a little surprised. LOL. I will have to have a little discussion with her. We’ll see how that goes.
Stand for Something.
