Merry Christmas Everybody! Santa just put his gifts 'round the tree, and Q is sleeping (or silently playing game boy but afraid to come out because he doesn't want to make Santa leave!) We had a huge drama before bedtime, he fessed up that his retainers were missing, I said well I dont have money for new ones so all the gifts have to go back if you can't find it...well he finally went looking! He actually had stuck them in his back pack. We have a routine of his taking them off and putting them in the case then I give medications, but somehow with the day off school or something, I got out of our routine and I have no clue how that happened. Well, never again, he was so scared, he said now I know you are right mom, they can get lost easy! YUP. Thank heaven they were not broken. The three cousins who got iPods early had them there and the other two cousins...one had one (but it was the older generation so he is a little out of joint but is being good about it and got a kindle so is really happy with that) so they ALL had theirs early! (due to out of home dads celebrating early.). So, since we always get to open on gift on Christmas eve from under the tree I let him open his galaxy player. He is SOOOO happy. He still insists it really is a phone but that is fine, he has no one to call, lol. Loves the games I downloaded. My cousins son joined us (21 yrs old) and he told him that if he had a choice he would pick the galaxy player way before an iPod in front of the other kids and he was so puffed up! I read lots of reviews and chose it because people who had both liked the galaxy player better, the screen is bigger, it is really a clear picture, the camera is way better and SO, happily he is saying it is his best gift ever and now I can't wait to see how he likes his smaller gifts from Santa. He really likes every little thing, even the tiny stuff in his stocking (I got coloring ornaments, and little ds pens for $1). Thanks to a kind friend he will be thrilled with what Santa brings. I will try to take pics of him playing with it.
