They’ll pay you compliments and pour on the affection. They’ll make promises or deals. They’ll even resort to tormented begging and pouty threats. When it’s bedtime, kids’ll try nearly anything for that precious five more minutes.* * “five more minutes” is defined here in the sense that children use it: until the child passes out […]

Darth Vader Santa Says…

Posted by on November 30th, 2012, under SNAPSHOTS

Sometimes getting into the holiday spirit can be as tough as squeezing into a pair of 10-year-old jeans.
