Santa, we have a problem.

Santa, you’re stressing me out. I am left with no choice but to leave a weapon for Emma on Christmas morning.

A weapon – Emma wants a bow and arrow. I totally say it’s a weapon. Scott says, “coolest little girl ever.”

I sat down with the girls last night and wrote down their wish list from Santa. I should have video taped it. Sometimes their conversation is solid gold:

Me: Hey, Emma what are you going to ask Santa for Christmas?

Emma: A cell phone!

Me: I hope a toy cell phone because I think Santa only makes toys.

Emma: Mom. His elves are the ones that make the toys.

Me: Whatever.

Emma: But I want a cell phone so I can talk to Reese.

Me: How about I let you use mine anytime you want and I’m sure Reese’s mom will let her use hers. Boom! Done. You don’t need a cell phone. You’re 6.

Emma: Ok. I know. A. REAL. LIFE. REINDEER.

Me: Why would you want one of Santa’s reindeer? He needs them to fly.

Emma: He can make me another one.

Me: He doesn’t make reindeer. He makes toys.

Emma: The ELVES make the toys!!!

Me: Oh. Sorry, sorry. Elves. Your dad would probably shoot the reindeer anyway. You don’t want that.

Emma: Yeah, he would! Boom!

Me: Wait, what. Keep thinking, girlfriend. No reindeer.

Emma: Ok. I know what I want.

Me: What.

Emma: No, I’m not telling you.

Me: Give me a hint.

Emma: It’s bigger than our house.

Me: Oh geez. Didn’t you tell daddy awhile ago that you wanted a bow and arrow?

Emma: OH YEAH!!! Yeah! That’s what I want from Santa.

Me: Emma, I don’t like hunting. And I don’t like my baby girl hunting, either.

Emma: Mom. I do. It’s fine mom. I need to practice with daddy.

Me: Oh my gosh. KATE!

Kate: Yeah.

Me: What do you want for Christmas?

Kate: (Looks at her book) A new book.

Me: That’s a good idea!

Kate: Uh…and a tree.

Me: A tree? You want a tree?

Emma: maybe she wants a treestand.

OH. MY GOSH. I give up.

Scott – you win. You don’t have any sons but you definitely got yourself a hunting buddy.

I’m going to get Kate a tree and we’re going to hug it.
