Christmas Wish

Keaton leaned over to me in church yesterday, and said "Mom, wanna know what I want Santa to bring me for Christmas?"

"Tell me." I said.

"Well, I want a First Alert!"

"What's that?" I asked, perplexed.

"Well, it's this cool strap thing that you wear around your neck, and if you need help, you just push the button, and people will come help you! Like, if I've fallen, and I can't get up...someone will come rescue me!"

I had to hold back a laugh, as I tried to explain to Keaton that a First Alert is meant for older people that might have difficulty getting up if they fall, or otherwise might need medical care quickly and can't make it to their telephone to call 911.

He was a bit sad to learn that Santa probably had something different planned for him.

I hope he's not too terribly disappointed with legos.

For years all my little girl wanted was a "clapper". You know that contraption that when you clap turns the light off. Crazy kids :)
