Santa [and] Baby

Ben thought all his Christmases had come at once when he figured out that in addition to being able to pull Santa's hair, Ole Saint Nick had a luxurious beard and mustache that were accessible as well.

Poor Santa. He'd earned his cookies after pictures with us.

We got off relatively easily on this one: Ben loved Santa. But there were lots of kiddos that were completely freaked out by the big man in red. And then there was the poor tyke in front of us that had had a bit too much Christmas.... He lost his holiday brunch all over the hallway carpet. I looked at the expression of panic on his mom's face and thought: someday, somewhere, that will be me.    

Parenting is a humbling experience, let me tell ya.
