Letters from Santa: Aidan

December 25, 2010

Dearest Little Aidan,

This is the 5th Christmas that I’ve come to visit your home and leave you presents. I’ve watched you really grow and go through some big changes this past year. I’m proud to say, through them all, you’ve done pretty well.

Going to the school for the first time ever, like a big boy, must have seemed like a big challenge, but you’ve done a great job at it. You’re nice to your teachers and your friends and you’ve learned a lot. You parents are so proud of you for learning so much and doing so well. Keep up the good work in school and it will pay off for you big time!
I know you’re baby brother has been sick a lot and you’ve had to be away from your Mommy a lot, but through it all, you’ve been such a big boy and were so good for your Daddy. Having a sick little brother, being away from your Mommy and still being a good boy…now that just shows what an awesome boy you can be.

One thing I’d like you to work on, though, is to stop wetting the bed. That’s a bad habit that big kids CANNOT have. If you want to be a big boy, you’ve got to say goodbye to the pull-ups and quit peeing in the bed. It’s gross and really, really not cool. So make it one of your biggest goals this year. DO NOT wet the bed!

Also, I want you to really work on being nicer to your Mommy and Daddy. Stop all the whining and fussing ‘cause that’s what three-year old boys do, not big, strong five-year olds. Say things that are nice, leave things alone that aren’t yours and learn to accept that not everything happens the way you want it to. When we don’t get our way, we have to smile, accept it and be our best and that’s what I want you to do. Nobody loves you more than your Mommy and Daddy. So do and be your best for them.

Lastly, I want you to say your prayers more often. Remember to say them at night and before meals. Never forget, prayer is one of the most important things you can do. That’s when you get to talk to Jesus and He always listens. Trust Jesus, learn about Him at Sunday School and be the best boy you can be for Him, always.

Well, time flies and now…so do I. You asked me to bring you a blue light saber and so I did. I brought you the best one ever. Like you, it springs into action and lights up everything around it. Enjoy, be good and may the force be with you!

Merry Christmas,

Santa Claus
