Conversations with My 6 Year Old: Holiday Edition

I asked my son what he was going to ask Santa for this year for Christmas.  This is what he wanted:

1.  Chapter books

2.  Pencils

3.  Paper

4.  A toothbrush

My son is the most adorable little dork!


In trying to get my son to finally tell me what he wanted for Christmas, he said this:

I don’t know mom, we have EVERYTHING!


Well, what do you want, mommy?  A new TV or something?  Because if Santa brings it, it’s not like it costs any money.

Oh, if only that we’re true, my boy.  If only!


My son was having this philosophical conversation with his father as to which reindeer was the fastest, Prancer or Comet.

He seemed to think that it was obviously Comet, because a comet is faster than a Prancer.  Yeah, I don’t know either.  But somehow it made sense to him, so let’s just go with that, ok?


And now………with BONUS:  Conversation with my three year old:

I was playing on my iPhone while he was eating dinner, and he looked at the back of the phone & asked me:

Mommy, is your phone from Applebee’s?

How cute is he?  🙂

    The Applebee’s one cracked me up! Sooooooo cute!

    The Comet being faster argument totally makes sense to me.

    A few weeks ago when we were listening to Lady Gaga (yeah, that’s how I parent), my son J said “Mommy, that song’s about you! ‘Where are my keys, I lost my phone…'” From the mouths of babes, yo.

    My niece wanted books and a candy cane. She also got a toothbrush and was extremely excited about it. It’s nice to give Santa an easy errand. 🙂

      What is it with the toothbrushes??

      It was nice, except there was no way that was all he was getting, so it probably would have been nicer if he had actually asked for a Wii or ipod or something. Less guessing by “Santa.”

    I miss those adorable conversations when mine were that age!

    I have a Boxer named Kommit. She is FAST. We call her Rocket sometimes. So tell your son, Comet (Kommit) is faster than Prancer!

      But do you also have a dog named Prancer? Because I feel you would need to compare and contrast before making a final educated decision on this query. Do some research and get back to me with your findings.

    I’m with Thoughtsy! I totally get why comet would be faster than prancer. Nobody ever got anywhere fast prancing about. Duh!

    I’m also loving the Applebee’s comment. I remember the first time we asked my daughter if she’d like to go to lunch there. She looked at us all cute and serious-like and said “Does Applebee’s have real bee’s there?” It’s going to suck when our kids get old and the stuff they say goes from being cute and funny to whiny and bitchy. LOL

      Oh yes. I am soooo looking forward to the teenage years. :p

      The weird thing is that as far as I know, he has never even been to Applebee’s and we don’t watch commercials, so I’m not even sure how he even heard of it. Weird.

    Ah, the deal of Santa gifts. Gotta love free presents!

      Yeah, I’m still waiting for Santa to bring me mine. I’ve been waiting for that pony for about 25 years now. Santa is really running late, apparently!

    Aww, your kids are cute! My kids are already at the growl and snarl stage. And the Christmas lists? Fuhgeddaboutit. Although, Youngest did ask for a lot of useful gifts — a watch, a wallet, and a camera among them. He got the first two and has been carrying them around like they’re going out of style. Maybe he’s training for Wall Street? Or a job as a photojournalist?
