You wouldn't believe who just so happened
to be at the mall today while we were shopping--Santa Claus! It was such a fortuitous coincidence that we would be at the same place at the same time considering that the jolly old man is so busy these days making his list and checking it twice! Even more exciting is that he took a few moments out of his busy schedule to give some very lucky kids (including Wyatt) one last opportunity to sit on his knee and share their Christmas wish lists.
We tried to prepare Wyatt for what to expect.Mom and Dad:
"So, when Santa asks you what you want for Christmas, what are you going to tell him?"Wyatt:
"Choo-choo trains!", he exclaimed.
We stood in line for a little while, which is not much fun with a two-year old that has absolutely no concept of patience. But I must say, watching the expression on Wyatt's face when he finally
got his first glimpse of Santa made it entirely worth the wait. I'm embarrassed to admit that I actually got teary-eyed as I witnessed my little boy gaze in amazement as the magical figure he had only seen on TV had actually come to life. Of course, Eric just rolled his eyes at me and shook his head. I know, I'm such a nerd.
Wyatt couldn't take his eyes off of Santa from the moment he first laid eyes on him. When Santa reached his arms out to him, Eric and I were quite surprised that Wyatt willingly went to him (as last year was a total disaster)! But when he was finally on Santa's lap, it's as if he went completely numb. He just stared ahead and responded to no one--not even Santa. He did finally give Santa a high-five as he walked away, but for the most part, I think it was obvious that he just couldn't really believe what was happening!
Here is yet another priceless photograph with Santa:
