The note from Santa was printed, signed and ready for hand delivery, but not a peep was raised about puppies, turtles or anything else that did NOT appear under the Christmas tree. After two days, I finally fed it to the shredder.
Lesson learned: Giving eight Nintendo DS games to two kids can save a life ... or at least this Dad's sanity. But I am worried about Thing 2's.
Outside of a few potty breaks and my convincing him to play a dozen rounds of Lazer Tag around the yard with me Christmas afternoon, this is all anyone has seen of our beloved 6-year-old since he ripped through all the paper and ribbons on Thursday morning:
In fact, My Love pointed out this morning that he is still wearing the same clothes he put on to play Lazer Tag ... three days ago.
The longest "conversation" he has held with us in that time was about how good Santa is at "Super Mario Bros."
"The box was open and I put the game in and it was already saved to Level 8! I've never gotten that high! Santa got it to Level 8 for me!" he said.
This is because Santa buys good little boys Nintendo DS games through Amazon.com -- used .
But I think I'll let the jolly ol' elf maintain his street cred with the boy. 'Tis the season.
Speaking of which, every time you vote for me at Humor-Blogs.com, an angel gets some.
