Something very very unexpected arrived in the post today.
It was a letter for Henry. From Santa.
Now I might be the last one in on this. Maybe everyone knows that if you write to Santa he writes back.
I sure didn't.
Henry wrote a letter last week:
He wrote it completely unassisted (i.e. without me neurotically correcting spelling.)
He started with his name because he wanted to, and added two k's for good measure. No, I don't know why either.
for Christmas I would like
zoo zoo pet
ben 10 toy
go go crazy bones
We put it in an envelope and he wrote on the front:
We put a stamp on it and he posted it.
Then he gets this, from here.
I think I was about as excited as he was.
It was quite a long letter, warbling on about how much Santa loved Australia, please leave out a sausage for him on Christmas Eve etc. All pretty cute.
One six-year-old here is beside himself with excitement about Christmas.
And it's only December 2nd.
