Christmas is such a special and fleeting time in a child's life and we try to make it wonderful, if not a little magical. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes not as much. I'm chalking this up to success.
Jesse was loving some Christmas festivities and looked at me and said, so only I could hear, "When I get bigger, I'm not going to believe in Santa. But I'm not big yet, so I still believe."
I said, "Good!" and hugged him tight.
Childhood is so fleeting!
