why does Santa hav'ta get all the glory

I was having a conversation recently with a friend at the gym while with were both getting our workouts in....and ya'all she just cracked me up I tell you. See, I was sharing the story about how Paige wants a DSi (expensive hand held video game), and an American Doll. I told Paige that I didn't think that we would buy both for which she replies..."that's OK mom....I understand....You and Dad can get the DSi and Santa can bring me the American Doll. (Jeff is saying seriously????She still believes????? I think it is just precious my 3rd grader still believes and my husband who probably never believed in Santa....not so much I will post more about that later) any hoo.....
Well then grandma came over, and Paige marked up the American Girl catalog with her wishes and now Grandma is getting the Doll. So Paige says she is asking Santa for the DSi.....So that leaves me a few other presents on the list for us to give. I was telling my friend this whole story to which she says......"Heck our house Santa gives books". Which just cracked me up. Her and her husband always gave the great, most wanted toys...Santa....well he gave books. So I am thinking Santa is bringing socks.....and books....and maybe a new shirt.....Definitely not the DSi....that will come from mom and dad.

That's an interesting take on it....Something to think about. :) I guess, at least at the point we are still at, there is something magical about Santa and I don't mind sharing the glory. I'll have to think about it though. :)

now that is logic!!
if my kids were still young enough to believe, that's a angle i'd have to consider.
perhaps santa would bring all things spiritual.
i love the idea of santa, but sadly, he overshadows the whole holiday.

i love how your daughter reasons. she's a bright little girl!!
