Is it Christmas yet?

In our house we have a Christmas problem.  The problem is……….Christmas.   Rather, the problem is the fact that Brandon and Jeremy get so pumped up for Christmas beginning, truthfully, on Thanksgiving Day.  Each morning we get the countdown that goes something like this:


Yes Brandon?

If today is the 16th and Friday is the 17th, and Saturday is the 18th and Sunday is the 19th, and Monday is the 20th and Tuesday is the 21st and Wednesday is the 22nd and Thursday is the 23rd and Friday is the 24th and Saturday is the 25th.  How many days are there til Christmas?

Well, what is 25 minus 16?

I don’t know.

Ok, there are 9 more days til Christmas bud.


Yes, Jeremy?

When are grandma and grandpa coming?

On the 23rd.

How many days is that????????

Repeat tomorrow morning, minus one day in the countdown.

And you know what??????????  I wouldn’t change it for the world.

UPDATE:  Friday morning….5:30a(the alarm is set for 7am)

Jeremy: Mommy?

W: Yes son?

J: Do you think Santa will bring me presents, what if I get coal?????

W: Go back to sleep Jeremy.

J: OK.


J:  When are grandma and grandpa coming?
