One of my all-time favorite Christmas cartoons came on earlier tonight and, because I have too much going on at work, I was only able to catch the last ten minutes. When I got home Christian and La Luz were lounging on the sofa under blankets, drinking hot chocolate and watching Rudolph...exactly what I wanted to be doing. I am glad they got to enjoy it. For some reason La Luz was not scared of the Abominable Snowman this year. Last year she was terrified but this year she thought he was hilarious because he has "boobs". Go figure.
Speaking of terrified, La Luz is still completely freaked out by carousels. What is her problem? Does she think the horse is going to break away from the carousel and go galloping off somewhere? Is she worried she might fall off? Because I have never seen that happen. Maybe she thinks one of the other horses might eat her. The only way she would agree to ride on it was with me right behind her on the same horse. Have you ever tried riding one of those things as an adult? Have you ever tried riding one of those things 9 months pregnant sharing it with a petrified 3 year-old? It was possibly the longest and most uncomfortable 7 minutes of my life.
Here she is at the birthday party last Saturday. Check out the white knuckles:
