On Christmas morning, Sonja climbed into bed with me for a snuggle. At 5 am….
But it was a lovely snuggle. She was all warm and cuddly and just so – toddlerish. We both fell asleep again.
At about 6 am she woke up and the following conversation ensued:
Sonja: Mommy, it’s Halloween today.
Me: No, it’s Christmas day today.
Sonja: No. It’s…halloween…
Me: Remember we have a Christmas tree, and Christmas cookies, and Christmas presents…?
Sonja: *silence* (I can see her wheels turning)
Sonja: Can I have a little bit some Christmas milk?
Me: Yes, you can have your milk.
Sonja: And YOU can have your Christmas coffee!
