Santa’s Job

Posted on December 23, 2008. Filed under: The Parenting Thing |

It is Christmas eve-eve and our Santa job just got a little bigger.  I was stuffing stockings while Big D was hiding in our bedroom putting Punk’s Princess Bike together…..when out of the bedroom there arose such a clatter (and words I’m sure Santa never uses) that I went to see what was the matter.  Apparently, Santa gave us a bike that had been returned because parts were broken and missing.  Did I mention it’s about 11:00 at night?  BigD mentions, if the store was still open, he’d drive the 30 minutes to go get another one.  So, I called Santa’s hotline (aka Toys R Us) remembering I’d seen an ad where they would be open late on the 23rd.  And away went BigD.  Sadly, no Princess Bike remained, but a suitable Barbie replacement was found.  And lucky for Punk, it has a spot to put a Barbie on the handle bars to ride along, so she got her first Barbie too. Whew — Santa was lucky on that one.
