Lily: On why Santa Should Bring Some Pepto

Lily was walking around the house looking stricken yesterday evening.

me: “Lil, you OK? You look really stressed.”

Lily: “I am. I am stressed.”

me: “Why?”

Lily: “My stomach hurts.”

me: “Oh, no. What from?”

Lily: “Nervous. It’s from me being nervous.”

me: “Honey, why are you nervous?”

Lily: [looks at me like I’m crazy] “Christmas, Mom. It’s, like, tomorrow. I can’t take the pressure. It’s just stressing me out. Elves are watching and there’s going to be presents and I have to be good and I don’t want to be good. I’m supposed to, like, go to sleep. Well, what if I don’t want to go to sleep?" [pauses, takes a breath and shakes her head] "Nervous. I’m just... nervous.”

me: “But you got a video. You’re on the ‘nice’ list. You don’t need to be nervous.”

Lily: “Tell that to my stomach.”

me: “I’m so sorry, honey.”

Lily: “Me, too. This whole thing is making me feel all gassy.”



(There’s really no good response to that, is there.)

Merry Christmas!

if you want to watch the video but it asks you to sign in, my user name is my first name and my last name with no spaces @ BYU [dot] edu. The password is umuv (which is some random password they assigned me.) Almost wish I’d filmed her watching it (meta). Her reactions were priceless.

I know those elves watching me makes me pretty anxious.

Love it! That is just too funny, your kids are awesome. On Christmas eve Ava was telling a missionary that lives @ my Mom's house that she is supposed to be good and listen, but just keeps forgetting. Then she smacked herself in her head. Strang kid. But Santa still came, though she is on my naughty list daily!
