My 3 year old said these things about Christmas.
I need to remember some of the funny things Raffi has said this Christmas season at age 3, so here we go -
1. He thinks it snows on Christmas, and that’s how you know it’s Christmas. I really hope he isn’t disappointed if it doesn’t snow this Christmas!
2. Before bed, a typical one-sided Raffi conversation goes like this: “Mama, how does the Elf fly to the North Pole? Are there holes on the windows? Yes there are tiny holes but then how does the elf get back in? Hm I think I know. The elf uses his magic but I wish I could go to the North Pole to see the elf talk to Santa.”
3. Raffi has decided that he wants a series of blue things for Christmas. When you ask him what he wants he says “hmmm a blue rocketshipppp, a blue ball, a blue monster, and a blue yo-yo.” I don’t even know how he knows what a yo-yo is. He’s also decided that Ali’s favorite color is purple, so when you ask him what she wants he repeats his list in purple.
4. It’s a big deal that there isn’t a STAR at the top of our Christmas tree. Almost every day Raffi mentions that our Christmas tree is missing its star. When he sees photos of other Christmas trees without stars at the top (HI ROBBIE) Raffi gets really upset about it. He wants all Christmas trees to have stars at the top!
5. Just like at 15 months old, this kid is obsessed with Ferrero Rocher chocolates. He thinks that all treats should come in threes because he’s 3 years old, so he will often ask for three “gold chocolates.” I give him one and he shouts “HURRAY!” every time.
6. For some reason Raffi thinks that stockings look better on the tree. At some point each day he takes the stockings down and hangs them on the tree instead.
7. After 3 years of rarely singing, Raffi is in a singing mood all the time now. His song of choice is Jingle Bells. He sings it this way “Jingle bells, jingle bells, hanger all the way.” It’s so cute.
8. Raffi met Santa at his auntie and uncle’s house, and he keeps talking about how he wishes Santa would have stayed all night. The other morning he woke up and immediately said “I wish I was at auntie’s house with Santa one more time.” He wasn’t afraid or anything! He very quietly told Santa exactly what he wanted for Christmas and then gave him a kiss and a hug.
I can’t think of any other ones right now, but I will update them if there any more. I think Christmas with a 3 year old around is just the best. Everything is still so magical, and he is still satisfied mostly with basic answers to his millions of questions. I love this time of year.
