She wanted to read Winnie the Pooh’s Christmas before bed tonight. I humored her.
Then I asked if she wanted to sing a Christmas song. I suggested Joy to the World (“no”), Angels We Have Heard on High (“no”), so I asked, “What do you want to sing?”
“Let’s sing the Jesus is Born song… Do you know that one?”
“No sweetie, why don’t you sing it?”
(Singing) “Jesus is born, and Sons of Earth. Give Him a bottle when He’s thirsty. Give Him a glowstick in his bed so He can see in His bed… (we sometimes give her one) … Wait, wait, this one starts with drums. (taps on the bed railing with her glowstick and starts again…) Jesus is born… ”
Tell me you can come up with a better Christmas song than that, and I’ll… give you your very own glowstick. 🙂
