What do you say to a hurt polar bear?Are you all white?
Why did Santa eat a snail?
Because he doesn’t like fast food.
What did the tissue start to dance?Because it had a little boggie in it!
We opted not to tell the kids anything about what happened in CT before school. There was a police officer posted at every school in our county (state?) this morning, but the sight of a police car in front of the school wasn’t anything new to the kids as one is frequently there to stop speeders. The kids came home happy as can be and neither one has mentioned anything. I’m OK with that.
So now we turn towards the mundane. Keeping the kids sane before Christmas. Wrapping the endless gifts. Finishing the last minute shopping. Trying to remember to move the stinking Elf each night (we’ve had two fails in the past week). And I’m OK with that too. My kids need normalcy and routine, and so do I.
