"Dear Santa, I would like a kitten for Christmas. Not a stuffed one, but a real one. I've been:
Naughty (Xed out) Nice (checkmark)
Really nice. I've always wanted a real kitten. Please don't leave it in my stocking. Not in a present either. I want her in rapping paper with airholes. Love, Ava
I love how Ava is concerned that stupid old Santa is going to wrap her kitten in a way that's going to be deadly.
I am pretty anti-pet. I can't see us getting another animal to shed fur, tear things up, scatter litter or poop all over, get into the food, be a hassle when we want to leave town, etc. But, these kids are starting to wear me down with their cute insistence. Don't tell them I said that. I am really trying to be strong.
P.S. I can't wait to write about the amazing holiday tea my mom and I attended at the Arboretum today...and I have pictures!
