Me: "Regan, what do you want for Christmas?"
Regan: "Hmmm, I don't know..."
Me: "You should think about it and write it down for Santa."
Regan: "I know, when I do, he always brings me what I want."
Me: "Well then, we should really think about what you want."
Regan: "But I like your gifts better because you always surprise me."
Hmmm.....I thought for an almost 7 year old that this was pretty profound. Our kids don't need everything on their "list" to feel the magic of the season...we simply need to surprise them....I am going to try to remember this and make this season magical. I am going to find something special to surprise them with!
