the target toys catalog came in the mail yesterday,
so rhyan sat at the table circling all the things he wanted.
i asked him to make a list for santa, to which he replied

mom! everyone knows he’s not real!

he asked how much my budget was for his birthday & christmas,
then listed the items from the things he wanted most [aka must haves]
to the things he could do without — and even totaled it up for me!
he also was sure to remind me to shop before november 21st,
so i could use the coupons included in the catalog. [smart kid]
all this to say it’s funny how the times have changed,
and sad to see his years of writing santa have come to an end.
