Here’s an extra post just because I think my child is cute.
Sometimes, kids ask grown-ups a question which they want to be asked in turn. This is what my six-year old son did to me not long ago. The conversation went something like this:
“Dad, next year, what do you want for Christmas?”
“I don’t know. Why do you ask?”
“C’mon, what do you want for Christmas?”
“I guess I want everyone to be together and happy…?”
“Nooo! That’s for Jesus (to take care of) ! What do you want for Santa (to give you)?”
“Nothing I guess.” (long pause…I refused to be “baited”.)
“I know what I want.”
“Yeah, what’s that?”
“I want a new bike.”
I’m pretty sure he doesn’t expect Jesus to get it for him. How many of you think that’s a good thing? How many of you think that’s bad?
