Christmas in January

The box of Christmas goodies dispatched from the Shaw residence in Greenwich NY arrived at our house on Monday, stuffed with family gifts and items we had bought online in the States. So we scheduled our Christmas gifting for that evening, beginning, as Harro tradition holds, with the stockings. Milo was thrilled. He had shopped at the grocery store with us and knew which stockings belonged to whom, and what little kid doesn’t recognize a cookie when he sees one? He may not have experienced the other items yet, but he somehow knows they’re delicious. Don’t worry Omi, we included a new toothbrush as well.

Green Eggs and Ham, Jamberry, Are You My Mother? (in Spanish and English), and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom were a few of the classic titles my Mom and Dad sent to augment Milo's library.  I think I love reading the familiar lilting rhythms even more than Milo does.

The beads were on top, and Milo claimed them straight away.
