Go ahead, ask me. Ask me how many times since the Christmas tree went up that I've heard that question. So many times, that I went out this weekend and bought this...
Here's how we play this game. See the snowman? SweetPea gets to move him forward every day.
The end game, of course, is for Mr Foam Snowman to land here...
SweetPea: "Momma, is it Christmas yet?"
Me: "Look at your calendar. Where is the snowman today?"
SweetPea: (pondering) "December... 6"
Me: "And where is Christmas?"
SweetPea: (points to the Christmas tree) "Here"
Me: "How many boxes does the snowman have to land on before he gets to the tree?"
SweetPea: (counting out loud): "Nineteen?"
Me: "That means there are 19 more days until Christmas"
Hey, if you want to know, you're going to have to work for it, baby!
