My Best Christmas Present Ever…
…came two days ago, on December 23rd.
Me and Mason were sitting around watching Fred Claus, when out of nowhere he asked if we could go shopping to buy Mummy and Ella(sister) Christmas presents. Now this in itself was really cool – at previous Christmas and Birthdays he’s never mentioned it and I bring it up and he’s never shown any real interest.
I asked him if he knew what he wanted to get them. Now when I’ve asked what to get them for birthdays etc previously, he’s always said things he wants like XBox games etc, so I expected the same thing. So I was pretty stunned when he quickly responded:
“Chocolates for mummy and a barbie doll for Ella.”
He was so sure of himself, he knew what he wanted to get. It totally caught me off guard, and I thought maybe he had been suggested that by his teacher, or by Janise or something. So I asked him “Where did you come up with the idea for those presents?”
His response was: “My brain.”
It was just such a cute thing – I dunno I expect if you’re not a parent you won’t fully understand it, but for me it was pretty much one of the greatest moments of my life, and will be a memory I cherish forever. Today we braved the local mall and bought those gifts, then brought them home and wrapped them and they are sitting under the tree right now.
So yeah thank you Mason for my best christmas present ever – a memory and a moment in life that I will cherish forever.
Merry Christmas everyone.
That is priceless Graeme, I am a few years away from having kids but I look forward to moments like this.
Ha excellent work kid. “My brain”, you just cannot write that.
