On Friday, Santa Claus came to visit Remi's school. The whole experience was so sweet. They brought in one class at a time and had all the kids sat quietly in row until it was their turn. Santa was in a big wooden chair up on a stage. There was no one screaming, no line to stand in, just children getting to go sit on santa's lap and have a very quiet and personal conversation with Santa.
I guess I am so used to the chaos and noise of mall santas, that this felt very sweet and magical.
When santa asked Remi what he wanted for Christmas, he looked at me and said 'I need help, mommy'... It was precious!
