You don’t know what horror looks like until you’ve seen the face of a five year old boy who believes he just created his own personal Christmas apocalypse through a tiny little oversight.
My five year old boy climbed into the van after school let out and he couldn’t wait to tell me something.
Five year old: “At Kindergarten today I wrote out my Christmas list and we sent it to the South Pole.”
Dad: “You mean the North Pole.”
Five year old: “Oh No.”
The girls told him it would be all right but when he came home he wrote it out again just to be safe. He handed it to me to make sure it got where it needed to be.
Note: Blessed Among Men has tons of little family stories like this.
