Ian really, really, really wants to help wrap presents this year. He asks every single day if there’s another one we can wrap. When I run out of gifts for not-him, he asks if we can wrap ones for him too. “I’ll forget what it is! Christmas is so far away!” he reasons. Nice try, kid.
Yesterday, he told Simon, “We wrapped a present for you today. I’m not going to tell you what it is.” And then without further prompting: “Okay I’ll give you one hint: It’s not a science kit.” It is a science kit, and he knows it. Sigh. Don’t remind Simon. He might forget; Christmas is so far away after all.
(I just realized last year’s DPP for 12/16 is also of Ian wrapping gifts.)
