Is that kid OK?

**Is your child soooo happy and excited that it's Christmas?
**Does your child have a meltdown if you tell him you will not buy him a nutcracker?

**Does your child tell you how many days till Christmas, 5 times each day, smiling like he will burst?
**Does your child cry and whine because the Christmas CD you burned him isn't up to snuff?

**Does your child break out in Christmas song and ask to hear Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer 8 times in a row in the car?
**Does your child whip you repeatedly with his new scarf while you drive the car and get offended when you yell and confiscate the scarf?

**Does your child ask you: "What have you always wanted for Christmas? I will buy it for you!"
**Does your child bounce off the pews in church, fight with his friend in primary, storm out of his primary classroom and glare at his primary teachers?

**Does your child happily declare that he is giving all his money ($2) to his Uncle (Jeff) for Christmas?
**Does your child get mad and refuse to sit on Santa's lap because he already sat on Santa's lap and this is a different Santa and he already told him what he wanted and how many Santa's are there anyway?

**Does your child freely admit that he was disobedient at the church Christmas party, agree to clean the car as his consequence and then happily finish the task?
**Does your child eat nothing but candy all day, stolen from candy dishes around the house and then have a donut for lunch? (OK the donut was my idea!)

**Does your child go around excitedly telling people all of the things he's getting for Christmas because he circled them in a toy catalog so that means he must be getting them?
**Does your child poke your dog with a fork to see what will happen?

**Does your child wear a fur trimmed Santa hat around the house and try to get the dog to wear one too?
**Does your child refuse to get out of the car and go into ONE MORE store?

Think your child might be going crazy? Nope, it's just Christmas.

Happy Holidays! Hope we all survive!

Hey Deidra, its Michelle O here. I am sorry I missed you last night at the party. I hope you had a good time. I am wondering how you get the cute frame on your page, I am new to this blog page thing. I don't talk about Christmas or hype up the kids about Santa. I have only told them this week that the Elves are watching when I am so mad at them, & that we won't be having Christmas at all.

That picture of Zack is so cute! I love that he's so excited. We took Bentley's to the neigbor's house to see Santa and he gave her a tea set. She thinks that was Christmas. Jesse thinks we should just let her keep thinking that.. Merry Christmas!

Kids do get so crazy at Christmas! But even when they are stinkers it's funny. I guess that's what the Christmas spirit does to me...makes me patient!

Too cute! I think christmas is so much more fun with children around.

Zack is such a character! I love all the things that kid comes up with. I give credit to the parents.

btw, you can't take my husband seriously when he comments. :)

Yeah, I suppose we can only get away with the "multiple" Santas for so long! Smart kid! He is such a cutie! Have a wonderful holiday sweet least he isn't throwing Ramen noodles on the dog (have you EVER tried to get those out of a Scottish Terrier's fur, really?) and screaming with delight! Merry Christmas!
