Every other person has asked me if I’m ready for Jack’s first Christmas, which I think is a pretty funny question. He’s 9 months old, and I’m finding it difficult to get him pumped up about the holiday. I’m all like, Santa! Christmas lights! Family! and he’s all like, ba-ba-ba.
While he can’t write a Christmas list just yet, I’ve been paying attention, and I know exactly what it would look like.
Jack’s Christmas Wish List
The opportunity to lick every single electrical outlet.
To be allowed to roll around on Penny’s dog bed, especially on the wet parts where she’s been licking for hours.
Access to all the remotes and Apples devices in the house.
Socks (the dirtier the better for chewing, I say!)
To be held.
To be put down.
To be held again.
The chance to scale the stairs. (I know I’d be great!)
To finally meet that other baby living in the fireplace.
Sharp objects. (Nothing specific – anything dangerous will do.)
To burn the carseat so I never have to be put in that thing EVER AGAIN.
Drawers that I can open and slam shut.
