A has finally discovered Christmas! At almost three years old, she understands who Santa is and what happens with all the presents. It’s probably due to the fact that she has been watching The Santa Clause on constant loop since July. Since them, Papa Bear and I have repeatedly burnt the turkey like Scott Calvin and had dinner in Dennys. We’ve ridden in make shift sleighs and had countless hot chocolates. It’s lucky that we adore Christmas too so this type of play never gets old! Last week A gave her Great Aunt a pen and paper and asked her to write down what she said. It went something like this: Dear Santa, my name is A. I would like a bike, a doll, an aeroplane, a guitar, a dress like Rainbow Dash, a batman belt, a blind bag and a squishy pop. I actually couldn’t wait for the day she asked to write her Santa letter and I’ll admit my heart broke a little because I was in work and not there to help her tell Santa how good she has been all year. But it’s exciting none the less and I now have to start a bartering system with good old Saint Nick. Along my travels on Etsy to find some amazing handcrafted Irish stores to introduce you to in my upcoming Christmas Gift Guide, I came across Matilda’s World 15. Cute and adorable were the first two words that popped into my head. And I’ll be directing the big man their way to tick some items off A’s list!
