Saturday morning for advent Wolfie got a transformer and the girls both got mini glitter gel pens and little notebooks - Chococat for Luna and Hello Kitty for Tulip.
Tulip "wrote" a whole bunch of sentences in her notebook. "Mama - do you want me to read to you what I wrote?"
"'Dear Mama, I love you. You're the best mama ever. You are good at making us breakfast and pancakes are you are good at fixing us lun-'...Mama? You fix us lunch sometimes, right?"
"Yes, sometimes I fix you lunch."
"Right. 'You are great at fixing us pancakes and lunch sometimes and you are the best mama ever.'"
Then Wolfie did a little math and announced, "What the heck?!?! Only 8 days until Christmas?!?!"
Luna, meanwhile had been writing in her journal just like her big sister. "Mama, you hear my journal?"
"Yes Luna, I'll hear what you wrote in your journal."
"You best mama ever and you make pancake!"
Oh, my darlings, you are the best children ever.
