Morning At My House

Nestled in the forlorn parts of snow covered MN, an up-too-early child wonders. And an out-of-sorts-too-tired-yet-to-be-awake mom, begins another day.

My boy: "Is the 24th the first day of Christmas?"

Me: "No, Christmas Day is the first day of Christmas. December 25th." (said for about the millionth time in the last week)

My boy: "Oh. On the 25th then Santa comes!!!"

Me: "Well, yes, but more importantly Jesus is born. That's what we celebrate, remember?"

My boy: "What??!! Jesus gets born all over again??!!"

Oh goodness, little boy, can mommy finish her coffee first before we get into a discussion on the true meaning of Christmas? Child of mine, have you really missed the point every time we've discussed this?

I sense a long day ahead.


  1. We had a similar conversation the other day about Jesus being born "again" and I had to explain that we only celebrate his birth, just like on their birthdays. It's just too exciting to try and make sense :)

  2. I love this. :) Mostly because we have had so many similar conversations at our house. The last one involved Squiggs asking how Jesus will get to our house on Christmas day when he's born. As in, will he come in a car or what. I honestly think she thinks the incarnate Christ Child is going to show up on our step. :) A hard concept when you're three! Merry Christmas!


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
