When it was time for bed you couldn't fall asleep
because you were so excited!
You couldn't wait until Christmas morning
to see if Santa left you a special gift
under the tree. You woke up before daylight
and rushed into the living room.
Then, when you're a parent you get to experience
the innocent joy your child has during the wondrous season of celebration.
Now, as a grandparent I'm looking forward
to watching Ethan learn about this glorious time of the year.
