Our visit with the mall Santa earlier this week didn't go so well. Grace was dressed in a red velvet jumper with white tights and black velvet Mary Janes. But despite her perfect outfit and the unrealistically-high hopes of her mommy, she wanted nothing to do with the man. Kindly beard and sassy suit or not, Grace started to wail as soon as I sat her down on his bowl-full-of-jelly lap. It was the kind of wail that produces immediate crocodile tears and evil stares from strangers that seem to say, "What the hell did you do to her?" And to top it off, just before we got to the head of the line, Vonnie asked me if I wanted to bet $5 on whether or not she would cry. "You're on, she'll do just fine!" Loser mommy...

ho ho ho, no no no NO NO NO NONONONONO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
