Remember when I said that Iain was starting to understand the different holidays? Apparently we still have a bit of work to do. Here's a conversation that took place in our house not long ago.
Neil: I’m excited about Christmas!
Iain: I AM TOO!!!!!
Neil: You should be!
Beth: What do you remember about Christmas, Iain?
Iain: Steak au poivre!
Neil: Well…kind of…
Beth: What do we put up in the living room at Christmas?
Iain: The birthday banner!
Beth: Nooo…we put lots of decorations and lights on it…It’s a big…
Beth: Um. No. It’s actually a Christmas…
Beth: That’s right! Do you remember it?
Beth: What color is it?
Iain: Yes. Bluey-dooey.
Beth: No, look out the window. What color are trees?
Beth: Right. And we hang up stockings, and wrap up all kinds of fun presents for each other. But, do you know what Christmas is REALLY about? Why we celebrate it?
Beth: Whose birthday do we celebrate then?
Beth: What baby was born at Christmas?
Guess we'd better get that birthday banner up, break out the steak au poivre and put lights on the elephant to celebrate Liam's birth!
