I am going to share with you the follow up repost from yesterday “What we won’t be doing for Christmas.” But before I get to that I gotta tell you about today. I had to get a tooth pulled today due to it falling apart and shooting pain clear up to my eyeball. When it came time to put Little J down for nap he wanted me to sing him his favorite song (part of our nap time routine.) But I could barely talk let alone sing. I got J out of the living room and asked him to sing “Moon Moon Moon” by Laurie Berkner. I was expecting him to say “no” because he was eating but he came in and sweetly belt out the notes and Little J went to sleep peacefully even though he had a stand in performer.
Now on to the follow up……
From December 5th
Well last night I was bummed, but I realized today that my kids don’t need to be introduced to Santa in person to enjoy him. J has been watching Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (a.k.a. The Sneaky Grinch ~ J and The Spooky Witch ~ Little J) a LOT ever since I DVR’d it a week ago. Last night we bought the Christmas Classics DVD set that included The Grinch so now he can watch it with our commercials. Tonight we watched Twas The Night Before Christmas and Rudolph on DVR and he loved those as well. Night Before Christmas is on the set we bought 🙂 So I can share my love of all things Christmas with him through a media he loves MOVIES.
UPDATED to add: We’ve also been turning on the kids music channel on satellite and have been dancing to holiday favorites every couple of days.
