Grandma, don’t help me.

Nadia, letting her grandmother know she didn’t need any help opening a gift.

Oooh, just what I wanted.

Simone, after she opened just about every gift.

What is it? What is it? What is it?

Nadia, being a bit impatient as her sister opened a gift.

That’s very beautiful.

Simone, after opening a pretty gift.

Where’s mine?

Nadia, noting that if there’s one, there’s always two.

Daddy are you done yet?

Simone, rushing her father to finish putting together a gift.

Can I see it?

Nadia, proving that giving a child one share of stock in her favorite fast food restaurant and favorite amusement park is a bit too abstract for a 3-year-old to grasp.

    That’s cute. Our daughter, asked what her favorite gift was, proceeded to name every gift she received: “I guess it’s either the x or the y or the z or the a or the b or maybe the c…” Which is consistent with her joie de vivre. She simply loves life.

    Our son, asked the same thing, said, “Huh?” Which is consistent with his distracted, day-dreamy nature. You can’t expect him to break whatever train of though he’s following to actually answer a question.

    My favorite Christmas moment: about four days prior to Christmas, when I realized that our daughter was memorizing which gifts were for whom, and tallying the numbers, I began putting gifts under the tree with no “to/from” labels specifically to prevent her from doing this. For a day or two there I feared she would slaughter me in my sleep. She certainly would have but for the fact that only I possessed the “key” to knowing who gets which gift.
