Many of you read my note "Christmas with Toddlers."
We have a couple of big updates:
The other day I posted a note about the boys being completely TERRIBLE!! I mean, the entire day was AWFUL, and quite possibly one of the hardest yet since being a Mommy. I mentioned something about "Santa watching" again since that seemed to help for Jacob several days earlier. Caleb announces to me, "Santa not watching, Mommy." I tell him, "Uh, yeah, Caleb, HE IS watching and he knows that you are not minding your Mommy right now!" Caleb gave me a very seriously look, which, as he often does, shows his little "gears turning" so to speak. He ran to his bedroom window were the previously mentioned inflatable Santa "rests" during the day. He reports to me, "No, Mommy; Santa no watching; Santa night-night right now!!" So come to find out, he realized that he could be naughty all day because Santa was not inflated, therefore "Santa night-night!" UGH - what a stinker!!
That night, Daddy came home from work and I told him all about what had happened during the day. Jon called Santa to request that the twins be temporarily added to the "naughty" list, possibly being changed at a later time pending their behavior. Jacob got very serious after Jon's "phone call," requesting that Jon then "call Jesus!"
Hmmm... was he trying to go above Santa's head? Wanting to ask for forgiveness?! We aren't too sure. It was one of those moments that I was doing everything I could to keep my calm, serious face. His blue eyes were again HUGE, and I didn't want to bust out laughing during his obvious moment of distress.
