For months and for reasons unknown, Will has been incredibly fearful of riding his bike. The only reason that I can think is that a few months ago he fell off his bike, and my ever-so-cautious first-born has refused to get on his bike ever since.

While we were eating dinner last night, Will started talking excitedly about Christmas and Santa Claus. As he was talking about Santa making a visit to our house, he asked me, "Mommy, what gift should we get for Santa?" I then explained that we leave out cookies and milk for Santa. Will then replied, "He … Continue reading #119 Sandwich for Santa.
My uncle is a great guy. My brother and I always considered him our favorite uncle growing up, and after today he has solidified his rank as favorite in Will's mind, too.
