You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is comin’ to town
When I was a kid I was in a boarding school. So we had a ritual of writing a letter to our parents every week. I also used to receive letters from my mother and grandmother. The whole thing about writing and receiving letters is that it adds a different sense of personalisation. I would feel that I am sitting with my mother and she is talking to me.
Last week, Miss A was at home as she was down with viral fever. Though when she had a fever she would be either cranky or sleeping for the most part of the day. Other than that she would play, read books and watch television. One afternoon she walked up to me and asked, ” Ma, have I been a good girl this year?”
Me: Yes! but why are you asking?
Miss A: Do you think that if I still wrote a letter to Santa, would he deliver my gift on time.
Well, it is that time of the year when children are busy writing letters to Santa. She has been doing it for the past 2 years. I simply looked her and said,” Yes dear you can still write to him, there is enough time, as it is the Christmas tree is already up. He will understand that you were unwell and could not write to him earlier.”
She was so happy with my reply and that very minute rushed in to write a letter to Santa 🙂
Fingers crossed … hope she gets her gift on time 😉
