So, Christmas is coming and I am getting fat!
Baby Number 3 seems to be coming along nicely. I am so excited about our growing family especially at this time of year.
I love Christmas and have already started laying the foundations for what I hope will become our festive family traditions.
On thing still to think about, and I think it deserves serious thought, discussion and debate is Father Christmas himself.
The Santa Clause!
It is not as straight forward as you might think. David and I need to get our stories straight!
Does Santa bring children all of their presents? Just some? Or only one? One special present that will be discovered under the tree on Christmas morning, beautifully wrapped in different paper from all the rest with a special label from the big man himself!
Does Father Christmas leave a stocking at the end of your bed or fill a stocking hung carefullly by the dining room fire?
How can Old St Nick visit every child in the world in just one night and if you are naughty do you really have to go without?
How does Pere Noel fit down the chimney? What if there is no chimney, should we leave him a special key?
Why is Christkindl sat inside a shopping centre grotto and not busy making preparations for his special day?
So many questions!!!
Do you have a policy on Father Christmas?
What is your Santa Clause?
I reckon David and I have about nine months to agree our terms. In 2012 Esther and William will be lost in the magic and fully immersed in the belief of Christmas. I want to make it perfect for them and help them to believe for as long as they can.
So, this is our last Christmas to consider, ponder, debate and discuss before setting our terms, finalising our policy and agreeing our Santa Claus!
I love Christmas!
