The Casting Dock

Cutest. Thing. Ever.

Kids. Gotta love ‘em. The 10 year old girl whom I babysit handed me this envelope to mail a few days ago. She believes in Santa, but she’s skeptical and plans to put him to the test. She asked Santa to handwrite a response back (last year, his response was typed…she’s a smart cookie), she didn’t tell her parents about the letter, and she asked for a dog for Christmas, a gift her mom is not exactly too keen on. This way, she reasons, she’ll be able to figure out for sure if he’s real.

She’s a sweet girl, though, so she also says, “If you don’t want to get my mom really mad at you then I guess you don’t have to get me one (a dog). So if you don’t get me that then could you and the elves please get me an ipod touch?”  And she has impressive manners (seriously, I need to get some tips from her parents for the future…) so she thanks Santa AND the elves profusely. I love her. It’s incredible how much we can learn from kids. Jesus had that right (no surprise there).

Don’t you just love little kid handwriting? It makes me smile everytime.

Kids are awesome. Let’s wait like four years and then have some.

Kids innocence to believe whatever they are told is amazing. Brian loved Santa more than any kid I have ever seen. He was most disappointed when he found out Santa was not real. In fact, he teasingly brought up recently how it scarred him! Kids are fantastic…I highly recommend having some!!
