Day 18: Kickin' It Old Skool Blog Challenge

Christmas lights

Throughout December I am Kickin’ It Old Skool with Jamie Ridler, Shannon Ridler, and a whole group of other creative bloggers. We’re bringing back the days when blogging was fun and not just another chore on the social media frontier. Join in any time! The more the merrier.

We're casting wishes! I love that. My wish is for my son's Christmas spirit to fill all of our hearts this year and every year to come.

Jonas is two-and-a-half and, while he doesn't quite understand what's going on, he realizes Christmas is a special time. I was just telling a friend about his wonder today.

He has been fun to watch as he has pulled me toward decorations in stores to say, "Come on, Mommy. Let's look at Christmas!"

He helped me "set up Christmas" at home and the morning after we decorated the tree he asked if we could decorate it again.

Every day for a week Jonas has wished me "Merry Christmas, Mommy." Then he sings Jingle Bells during nap time (which I listen to through the baby monitor and laugh) and when his teacher asked all the kids what they wanted Santa to bring them for Christmas, he said, "a red present." Such a simple request.

It is all so very sweet and I'm soaking it up.

What is your wish?

  2. I loved this! It's such a beautiful thing to see the world through a child's eyes again. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!
