“No, that’s enough”

21 Dec

The Turtle went to see Santa on Saturday. And for the first time he didn’t freak out (well, he wasn’t that bothered his first Christmas, but then he was only 5 and a half months old).

He walked straight up to him (Santa was on a couch in the back of the room) and said “How does that sleigh work anyway?” Santa was a bit taken aback and mumbled something about sitting in it and holding the reins.

Then it was on to the important business.

“What would you like for Christmas?”

“A Thomas scooter”

“Anything else?”

“No, that’s enough.”

Love that.

I love too that his nervousness shows only in how he holds his hands, and also in his refusal/inability to get any closer to Santa.

“Would you like to sit on Santa’s lap?”

“No, I’m is scared of him”You can almost see the fear.

Nevertheless, later, when Santa was nowhere in the vicinity he said “Santa is a great man, is he?… a great man.”
