Candor in the Car: The Holiday Edition

While driving on Christmas errands...

Mommy: "So do you think Santa will fill Larry Dog's stocking?"

Sarah (incredulous there was even a question): "YES! Larry's a kid, not a grown-up. Actually Mom, Miss C [Sarah's riding teacher in her early 20's] says Santa still brings her presents..."

Mommy: "You know I saw Mr. Steve [our next-door neighbor] today, and he said Santa still brings toys and gifts to his son who's 28. Maybe Santa stops coming once you're married and become a mommy or a daddy."

Darren (conclusively): "And that's just one of the reasons I am not ever going to get married. I'm just going to have a really good girlfriend like Mr. ____ and Miss _______. They're happy together and Santa can still come to them."

Sarah (working all the angles): "I bet he just stops coming once you have kids. So if I do decide to get married, I'm going to get some shots or something so I don't have any."

I said it too!!! Things don't always turn out the way you say they will when you're a tween!!! I know she's not a tween yet, but she sure talks like one sometimes!

I love all of Darren's reasons for NOT getting married! Why does he think you guys did it?

Rebecca said...

Oh, and Merry Christmas, yadda, yadda, yadda!
