Christmas Can Start, Carter is HomePosted: December 18, 2022
Thanks to flexible work from home rules, Carter was able to come home today for Christmas. She still has to work some this week, but I am happy to have her here so it feels like Christmas.
Shay was especially glad to see her. I had stopped opening Shay’s advent calendars since she rejected most of the surprises so Carter did a big opening with Shay. Amazingly Shay liked most things that Carter gave her. It must be that special Carter touch, or perhaps the enthusiasm Carter sold thing to her.
“Look Shay, gingerbread pretzels!” Shay gladly ate them out of Carter’s hand. Not that way when I tried.
Shay still did not like the balls Carter bounced at her. She has never been very good at fetch and even worse at bringing it back to you.
The crinkly sounding gingerbread man was a hit. Perhaps the gingerbread theme was all she was looking for.
Maybe Shay just did not think it was Christmas until her girl came home. I concur.
