Harold the Christmas Angel made his first appearance today. He was in Colette’s car seat when I picked her up from school, and he had a note telling her to deck the halls. She was so excited and talked about how we needed a tree and candy canes… Then she got down to business about Harold:

“Is he real or just a dolly?” A little hesitation on my part, “he’s real.” “How come he doesn’t fly?” “He flies at night while you are sleeping.” “Oh” Two minutes pass “Maybe he’s just a dolly.”

Where do we go from here? Photographic evidence of Harold flying? Agree he’s a dolly but still give her messages?

Help! My daughter is a skeptic like her Daddy!
