Lindy really wants nothing to do with the big guy with the beard and red suit. She says, "Sometimes I'm a little shy." If you've met Lindy, you know that's typically not the case but I'm okay if she's shy about Santa and am not going to force Santa Claus on her if she's not ready. We had been asking her what she would like for Santa to bring her and she hadn't really expressed a desire in anything. This is the kid who picks up acorns, leaves, and styrofoam peanuts and calls them her special treasures.
Then last week while I was making dinner she told me she was ready to write Santa a letter and asked if I could help her. I couldn't help her at the time but did inquire as to what she was requesting.
