We’re taking Audrey to see her first Mall Santa over lunch today

and I’m a little nervous, because Mall Santas creep the shit out of me.

I want her to appreciate Christmas and winter and stuff, and get excited for it, but sometimes I wish we didn’t have to involve all of this pageantry. ┬áIt’s important to Kel, and I respect that, but I’m already looking forward to when her Santa bubble gets burst a little bit.
