Shopping for Santa
With any luck, I've given you a few ideas that'll make your holiday shopping a little easier. And while you're out shopping, my son and I will continue to wait each other out. Does he believe in Santa, or doesn't he? Does it make any difference? Will I have to explain yet again that Santa probably bought the present at a local store and just forgot to take off the tag? The closer to Christmas, the higher the stakes. And he is strong willed. I won't be surprised if I blink first.
