"It's a birthday Mommy!"

I was beginning to worry that despite my best efforts at advent devotionals and Fisher Price Nativity reenactments that C wasn't locking on to the true Reason for the Season. Relentlessly watching Hermie's Fruitcake Christmas and The Wonder Pets Save the Reindeer seemed to help, but the whole "Christmas isn't about presents" message seemed to be drowned out by Santa, Lightning McQueen, and a sea of wrapping paper.

My worries dissolved Christmas Day as the family descended onto our house for the big meal. All the presents had been opened. Santa had come and gone. The house was full of laughter, good food, and the people we love. In the midst of the chaos C looked up at me with a big grin and said, "It's a birthday Mommy." He was exactly right.
