The Elves are Watching
Mina wants two things for Christmas:
THIS and THIS.
We spent a few minutes this morning looking them up online.
I told her that she could ask Santa, but I wasn't sure if he would bring both of them (why does she have to have such expensive taste?).
I'm pretty sure I'll get her the talking parrot even though the squawking will drive me to drink. The Fuzz Luv thing may or may not happen. I've seen them priced anywhere from 39.99 to 99.99. Do I really want to spend that much on something else that makes noise?
It could be worse. Last year, both girls begged for THIS.
Lucky for me, they've since set their sites lower.
Part of me knows that I could bring home a bunch of refrigerator boxes and they'd be happy as pie.
After explaining to Mina that Santa doesn't always bring everything we ask for, she pulled me aside to share some inside information:
"Mama, I need to tell you something."
"Mama, the elves watch us to find out if we are good or bad, and they tell Santa. I've been good, so they looked on your computer to see what I want and they went back to the workshop to make me those toys."
I'm picturing a hoard of little elves carrying out some sort of covert focus group. They sneak into the house while we're sleeping, carrying clipboards and 'thinking outside the box'.
