Two more days, two more days, hehehehe, excited, excited, i am, i am.
Tyler is slowly trying to drive me crazy this week. He wants one of his gifts already and he will say anything to get it before Xmas day hahaha
He comes to me this morning and says
"Mom, there's something I have to tell you."
"There is no Santa Claus, Mom. Not in the sense that some jolly man stuffs his butt down the chimney and puts gifts under our tree."
Well I just busted a gut laughing. And while I am laughing he says,
"So why are you making me wait for a gift you bought me 2 months ago. Do you realize how hard it has been for me to wait for that gift. I know you got it, Mom. So come on, give it up."
'Two more days', I said after I stopped laughing, 'that's not too far away. You go to bed tonight and tomorrow night, after midnight, if you stay awake, you can open your gifts. Or you can open them all when you wake up the next morning. It's not too hard to wait two more days.'
"Oh but it is, it's becoming really hard for me, Mom. I may just bust."
'Bust. And what will happen if you bust?'
"I will scream so loud, Mom, it will hurt your ears."
'Oh, that would be loud. But I will just leave the room.'
"And I will follow you, Mom, where ever you go, I will scream, Mom. I will give you 1 hour to think about it and then I will bust."
'One hour. Well that's just not long enough for me to think about it. How about, let's say, two days.'
"Come on, Mom. Two days. I can't wait two days, Mom, come on, Mom, please, please, please."
Then came a miracle, the door bell rang and in walked Mike, Tyler's buddy, calling him out for street hockey.
"This conversation is not over, Mom, I will be back," he says as he closes the door.
He came home several time for intermissions, with his buds, grabbed drinks, ate, and hung around the garage. By 8:30 pm they were done, 'toasted', as Tyler put it, as he put his head on the sofa pillow to watch t.v. and fell a sleep.
One night down, one day to go.
Blessed is the child, for one day, he too, shall be a king of kings.
Holiday Blessings to all from Pat, Joe, Tyler and Lady.
