The Best Christmas Wake Up Ever
I just had to share the best Christmas wake up ever with you. I woke up at 7.45 and both children were still asleep. Excited to see their little faces and conscious of family coming for breakfast I went to wake them up. 7.45 is a lovely lie in for me anyway so I was very chuffed. Daddy Ramblings was the first awake which was surprising! This is where the best Christmas wake up ever comes in, here is the interaction I had with C.
Me: “Morning darling, it’s time to get up”
C: “Mummy, why does Mickey call his dog Pluto? I don’t think he should call him Pluto. I think I need 2 dogs and I don’t know what I will call them. Not Pluto though. Maybe I should call one…..”
I stood there listening and smiling to myself and wondering what sort of dream he must have had. But by this point I’m starting to get excited and giddy and I just want to open presents so……
Me: “C, what day is it?”
C: Looks at me, frowns and the jumps up and looks in his stocking which is hanging on the back of the door.
” Ooooooooooh Mummy, he came and he remembered my aeroplane, Santa is awesome!”
I love early morning conversations with my son, but this one in particular was epic!
