She picked out a $5 husky dog. Done. We went to the mall to explain to Santa the change in plans. Not even a little bit of disappointment. She's just excited to get a new stuffed animal. Even Santa was impressed.
Eric and I still can't believe how easy that was. We also aren't sure it's real. We keep thinking we got away with something. Somehow, we raised a really good kid, who doesn't need much more than a little evidence of magic, and something green on which to hang her homemade ornaments. It's all very Tiny Tim, and it makes me kind of weepy.
Thanks to those of you who kept your eyes out for the most impossible to find pink unicorn ever. Consider yourself my favorite. Also, consider yourself off the hook. There's at least one blonde-headed cutie getting exactly what she wants for Christmas this year. Turns out, all she wants is Christmas.
