All inclusive

Jessica's an all-inclusive kind of gal. She will mix any toy set with any other toy set. Right now she's playing with pieces from Polly Pocket, Littlest Pet Shop, Barbie, Playmobil and a Happy Meal.

Jessica had the miracle that occurs to probably hundreds of school children every day. She stayed home sick today but right after it was time for school to start, she made a miraculous recovery.

I don't think she faked the slight fever she has, though, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

Jessica's current outfit: a dress-up princess dress and heels, an outdoor scarf, a tiarra and no underwear (big shock, I know).

The first day after we got back from the cruise was the PTA Holiday Fair at Jessica's school. I could either send cash or a check with the maximum amount of money I wanted her to spend. That seemed kind of weird to me, so I decided to send cash. But I didn't have anything smaller than a $20. I was afraid if I sent her with $20, she'd spend the whole wad.

Turns out I was right. Fortunately, I managed to get a $5 bill from Hari and sent that instead.

She spent every penny.

On what, I'm not sure. Hari picked her up from school and when she came in, she had a small box with her that she said, "Close your eyes, Mom!" and went running upstairs. Then I heard her talking to Hari and him saying, "Do you want to wrap it now or wait till Christmas?" It was pretty obvious she'd gotten me a present.

I have no idea what it is but the other thing she came home with was a snow/ice scraper for the car. This makes me a little afraid. At least now I know I'll get a present for Christmas.

Even if I did pay for it.

Holiday spirit

Jessica is a bit too literal. Despite being told not to, she was walking around earlier wearing her Christmas stocking on her foot.

Speaking of Christmas
A couple of days ago, before the alarm off, Xander woke up and said he was hungry. I said, "What do you want for breakfast?" Jessica then woke up and said, "Did you say today was Christmas?" Wishful thinking.
