RePete is spending the day with me. She has her five-year-old checkup today and when they are that small I have always kept them home with me two or three days a year since my days off rarely coincide with theirs. My ten-year-old got bent out of shape about it this morning because she didn’t get to stay home but I did the same thing with her as well as with her brother when they were that age.
Anyway, she is taking a quiet break from playing and I let her watch some TV. Damned Barney is on and there is a Christmas show on. Three elves (midgets) are on and one of the kids asks “Did you wrap all of those gifts?” and at that point they go into a rap song about wrapping Christmas presents…
