Nurse Rachelle

Sorry there have been so few posts and even fewer pictures. I will try to fix that in February. Besides chasing the 3 around, coaching b-ball, and working, Steve had shoulder surgery mid-January. So I've been challenged to be a good nurse. I can recognize that I was definately not intended to go into human medicine because my level of sympathy is so low it's terrible. I try to act empathetic, but it's pretty much faking. With animals, they can't complain, so I don't have to worry about acting sympathetic - it works great. Steve is healing up, finally. Hopefully in a couple months he'll be back to throwing, shooting, and whatever else.

What's the Right Answer??

So now I got another dreaded question...
"Mommy, some kids in my class say Santa isn't real. Is he?" from Gabby.
I gave a sly, uncommitted answer, "I don't know, what do you think?" until I could get home to ask the Santa-master of the house. He said stay uncommitted. I can't remember any childhood experience to draw on to answer this. It's not that I didn't believe in Santa, we just didn't play it up too much that I can remember. I don't really care if she knows, but then it potentially spoils it for Ry and CJ, too, because I know she won't be able to keep that juicy of a secret!
Any ideas?

Oh No!!

Not yet, I'm not ready!
He's only just 2 years old - although he talks like a 4 year old.
I thought I had at least another couple months before I had to answer....
Oh yes, yesterday I told him it was nap time and he blurts out without a thought "Why?"
Then today in the car, everything I told him was followed up with "Why?"
I guess I'll just have to answer with a parents favorite answer, "Because I said!"
