Is It Christmas Yet? Is It Christmas Yet?

My son rearranges the Christmas ornaments every day. Every day. Up until today, he's been fine with the idea of waiting for Christmas, but today he hasn't eaten and he's crabby. He says it's too hard to wait for Christmas, which I'm sure is true when you're almost four years old. For a while he was thinking tomorrow is Christmas, and he was sorely disappointed when I told him he'd have to wait one extra day. Horrors! He's alternately running around and moping, poor thing. Just now he came in and angrily told me once again how hard it is to wait for Christmas, so I asked him if maybe there was something fun we could do while we're waiting.

"Yes," he said. "We can have Christmas!"
