Best Kid EVER!

Post to Twitter .

Well, I haven’t received the gift yet, but I know it’s coming.  It has to be.  Ryan said so.

Ryan and I read Elmo’s Night Before Christmas tonight before bed.  After reading the book, I asked Ryan a few questions to see what he knew about Santa and Christmas and what he didn’t know.  The conversation went like this:

Mommy:  “Ryan, do you want to go see Santa?”
Ryan:  “YES!” (with a huge smile on his face!)
Mommy:  “Are you going to sit on Santa’s lap and talk to him?” (FYI – he refused to sit on Santa’s lap last year)
Ryan:  “Sure!”
Mommy:  “Are you going to ask Santa to bring you something special for Christmas this year?”
Ryan (thinking for a moment):  “Yes.”
Mommy:  “What are you going to ask him to bring you?”
Ryan:  “A housekeeper with food.”
Mommy:  “AWESOME! You are the best kid EVER!”
Ryan (with the biggest grin you’ve ever seen!): “You awesome too mommy!”

Seriously?!  The almost 3 year old asks for a housekeeper who cooks for Christmas?!  Greatest kid ever! 

I guess I could look at this as mommy isn’t a good housekeeper and doesn’t cook well, but I’m going to look at it as though Ryan sees how tired and exhausted mommy is from doing so much all the time and he wants to give her a break.  Yep – that’s how I’m viewing this Christmas wish because it’s the same wish that mommy is making for Christmas! 

Best kid EVER!
