Begining in June Ben began telling us that Santa claus was coming for his birthday. We thought he would have forgotton this by the end of August. He didnt. The week of his birthday I tried to explain to him that Santa only comes at Christmas time (which of course he has no memory of and where this obsession with Santa clause came from still bewilders us...). He cried. Santa came for his birthday.
Thankfully Ben was apeased by his quick visit that came over nap time. The jolly red guy was kind enough to leave Ben a new lawn mower, a tractor and a letter. Whew!
