Eli was pretty shy, as he usually is around strangers. Before going to the party I even considered that he might freak out so I talked him through the whole thing.
Me: Do you know who Santa is?
Eli: ...blank stare.....
Me: Who brings us Christmas presents?
Me, mulling over how true that is....: Well, Dad too, but also SANTA! He wears a red hat and red suit and has a beard, and you can sit on his lap and tell him what you want for Christmas. What do you want for Christmas?
Eli: ...blank stare...
Me: Do you want balls? (his favorite thing in nursery and at the gym daycare)
Me (totally confused, and yes, you ARE getting balls, so tough luck!): Do you want dinosaurs?
Eli : YEP!
Well, thank goodness, looks like we made a good decision in getting 2 big dinosaurs. Now hurry up, Santa! Can't it be Christmas already?!
