Zac, Wrapped in Swaddling Pampers

You know those kids at school that had a birthday right next to Christmas Day? My kid is one of those kids. Zac’s birthday, which is remarkably close to December 25 (some might mention the difference by mere hours), will always make Christmas both delightful and confusing. Delightful because, well, we’re thankful for the blessing of children and glad to celebrate Jesus and Zac. Confusing because we’re telling him that “this is for your birthday, but THIS is for Christmas”, which would be confusing to some adults, let alone a 2 year old. Don’t worry — we’re not going to be the kind of parents that sum present totals, making outlandish statements that thinly veil our laziness, statements like “this last gift is for your birthday and Christmas — Jumper Cables! By Fisher Price!” will never be uttered. Starting when he’s 6.
