Meera dictated this Santa letter to me. Translation: Meera wants a Princess Tiana (i.e., Princess and the Frog) dress (as in dress-up/costume dress for her, Meera, to wear), and a Princess Tiana “doll.” This is all so very interesting because K & O tried to convince her to ask Santa for chapstick (she loves chapstick and is always begging all of us to use ours), and for awhile she was going along with that, but then, suddenly, this weekend, out of nowhere, completely on her own, she started saying that she was going to ask Santa for “Tiana doll and Tiana dress.” All of us were shocked. We didn’t even know that she truly understood the whole concept of Santa, let alone that she could ask for something like that from him. Well, it turns out that she gets it. Like, fully, fully gets it. And the girl knows what she wants! Re: “Old McFarmer is to ride on a hay. Hey!”… this is what Meera sings whenever we sing Jingle Bells and get to the part “Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh, hey!” (and she’s always sang, “Old McFarmer,” instead of “Old McDonald” in Old McDonald Had A Farm, so she’s fusing it all together). She then insisted that I trace her hands at the bottom. Sweetie!
SANTA IS HARD AT WORK TO MAKE THESE THREE WISHES COME TRUE!
