I thought about that for a minute. "Well, Bubba. A few hundred years ago, when Santa first started traversing the Earth, he contacted the government officials from every country. He told them he had to deliver toys to every kid on the planet."
Bubba looked at me quizzically. "Are you sure about that, Mama?"
"Of course I'm sure. And they made up a special contract granting him permission to fly his sleigh and reindeer through international airspace."
"Did Santa sign the contract?"
"Of course. I bet the United Nations has it locked up somewhere in a vault."
"Mama, you're making that up!"
I grinned (as best I could with my fat lip). "What makes you think that?"
"Because there wasn't a United Nations hundreds of years ago."
Before I go, I want to share with you a couple of presents Santa left:
A Beethoven finger puppet for me. Now why would Santa do that? Unless I'm supposed to give my husband a Beethoven finger next time he teases me!
(All kidding aside, my husband is a good guy. He made me homemade chicken soup when I was sick, and he told me I was still pretty, even with my fat lip.)
So, what do you think? Does Santa have a passport?
I think Santa was grandfathered in, so he doesn't need a passport.ReplyDelete
I like the Beethoven puppet.
I think the Beethoven puppet is awesome!Delete
Smart kid! And great presents too. I hope your lip swelling is going down finally. How long will it be that way?ReplyDelete
The swelling is going down. As my husband says, I don't look like a Mama Duck anymore. It will take 2-3 weeks to completely heal.Delete
The Hurricane says that having a passport is all about going through customs and following the rules, and Santa is above all that. She also says that with such a big bag of toys that going through customs would be prohibitively expensive.ReplyDelete
The Hurricane is very smart!Delete
She travels a great deal and knows of what she speaks. Oh, and thank you. Yes. She is smart. She takes after her mom. Who. Happens. To Be.Delete
Sounds like a great xmas was had at your pad and nope he doesn't need one, his age is too big for the bracket so they just ignore it.ReplyDelete
Ah. One of the perks of being old. :)Delete
haha...your son sounds very smart!! And I love the Yeti lawn decoration!!ReplyDelete
How long did the Dr. say your lip would take to heal? Hope if goes away soon!!
In the meantime, enjoy your Beethoven puppet and your holiday season. :)
I don't think I would've thought of that when I was 8 years old. He's brilliant!Delete
It will take 2-3 weeks for the lip to heal. It's getting better each day, though. I can actually smile again.
Sounds like you had a great Christmas!ReplyDelete
Why am I not surprised at Bubba's train of thought? It confirms what we already know - the kid is super-smart!
Have a wonderful New Year Sherry!
He is a smart young man!Delete
Happy New Year to you, too!
A subject I have ever thought about, if he has he only needs it once a year.ReplyDelete
Loved your presents,
Happy New Year to you and family and hope you're feeling better.
I am feeling better each day.Delete
Happy New Year to you, too!
Outsmarted by a little kid.... He didn't get a time machine? Well, I happen to have stolen Doc Brown's time machine, went to the future and snatched Santa's pimped up sleigh. I swear... Here's the evidence.ReplyDelete
What a clever little guy! I'll have to think of ways to outsmart my boy too. Love that garden yeti!ReplyDelete
Smart Bubba :) I think Santa has a special pass anywhere in the world. Or maybe he has an invisibility cloak when immigration officers come. (Oh maybe that's Harry Potter hehe). That Beethoven finger puppet looks cute! Sounds like you all had a happy Christmas. :)ReplyDelete
Interesting looking garden yeti. Glad to see he got into the holiday spirit with his festive hat. The Beethoven finger puppet is cute. Your son definitely comes up with some interesting questions. Glad your Christmas was a great one. : )ReplyDelete
