Is it Christmas yet?

Is it Christmas day, Mom? Gabby has been asking me this question first thing in the morning when he wakes up. And when I answer, "not yet", he pouts.

The concept of gift-receiving caught on early with Gabby this year—ever since we started watching Christmas-themed movies and he rediscovered the rewards that a nice, good boy can get come Christmas eve. “Naughty’ has become a bad word in the house and cannot be said in polite company as he immediately perceives it as referring to him and bawls. At 4, he can still be such a baby sometimes…

Now that gifts are starting to pile up under the Christmas tree, he’s been eyeing the ones with his name on it. It’s amazing how he suddenly (and timely!) sharpened his reading skills just so he’d know to whom the gifts are meant for.

In just a few more days, he’d get an affirmative answer from us. So for this entry, I’ve made a layout of my son’s pouting face, with the hope that the red-capped jolly one does not always put all those who pout in the “naughty” list.
