But why?

LMD is very confused about this whole Christmas thing. She doesn't remember last year at all, but at nearly three she is able to vocalise and discuss it this year. And it's been a fairly long run up for a toddler.

She saw Santa a few weeks ago when we visiting my mum. While totally bemused by th whole thing, she went along with her brother, sister & cousin. He asked them what thy wanted, and they were all pretty mute tbh. Mstr A finally chatted a bit in his incoherent way, but all the girls just looked, accepted their present and left. LMD was ever so pleased with her hand puppet, and has shown it to everyone since.

So last week when we started talking about Christmas to her, she said she knew all about it. Santa gives her presents. Very nice, thanks ,and it all sounds great mum. I asked her what she wanted for her present from mummy & daddy, and she told me that she didn't want anything -she had everything she wanted. Which is, of course, true, as she has unbelievable amounts of toys!

Today, I was trying to explain that santa will come and leave some presents tomorrow night - and she pointed out that she had already got a present from Santa! wha would she need another one?

Perhaps we shoud all try looking at Christmas from a two-year-old's pov every now and then:-)

    Yup. My favorite Christmas ever was when my children got up and came to wish me a 'good morning' with hugs and 'I love you's', before they even thought of checking underneath the Christmas tree for presents.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mrs. Aginoth. All the best in 2008, too!
