My Kid Just Said… #14

[Christmas morning]

“Whu’s dat? A pwesent? Fo MEEE??? Whu’s in it?”

[1 minute later]

“I can’t open da wapping. It keeps wipping. Oh WOOK! TWAINS!!!”

[.0001 seconds later]

“I wead da ‘stwuctions and you buiwd it, okay, Daddy?”

[100 minutes or so later]

“It’s not wook wight, Daddy. Hewe ya go. You can have da ‘stwuctions but juuuuust fo one minute!”

[10 minutes later]

“Watch da twain go down, Daddy! YAAAYYYYY!!!”

There’s always that first Christmas for your kid. Not the actual offical First Christmas that we all know “doesn’t count,” where you the parent spent most of your time on drool management and trying to prop their little bobble-heads up long enough for a family photo. I mean the one where your kid first GETS it, where they first fling out their little arms and YAY at the top of their lungs.

    This was my son’s first real Christmas too and it was AWESOME! ! We actually got a “ooh mommy daddy I really really LOVE it!” :):):)

    I know exactly what you mean – At very nearly 2 my son was just figuring out wrapping paper and packages this Christmas, but he still didn’t GET IT (although he did go NUTS over a bag of 100 plastic balls)… I think his birthday in Feb. might be his first real birthday, and NEXT Christmas might be his first real Christmas :)

    A-freakin-doreable. I agree on the first Christmas thing. The Little Mister (13 months) just had what I call his ‘second first’ Christmas this year and I think his next one will be even better :)

    Little Dude just turned 2. He has contracted “open it” to “op’it.” I heard lots and lots of “Op’it!!!!” this week. :)

    I love this post!!! My daughter just turned 2 and this Christmas was so much more fun with her excited sound effects and funny comments!

    Ella’s first Christmas didn’t really come until this year when she was 5. “He came, He came, He Came!!!!” “I’m gonna be gooder this year so I get gooder presents next year” “I’m gonna say please and not yell”

    This was my son’s first Christmas of actually “getting it” too.(he’ll be 3 in April)

    The day after Christmas he woke up and asked “open presents?!” So…. he doesn’t quite get all of it yet, haha. But he had so much fun!
