TOP 10 THINGS I'M LEARNING FROM ROJO AT CHRISTMAS TIME THIS YEAR

10. It's high time I embrace his ways
9. If you make a mistake, just write right over the top of it - who cares?
8. Left to right is just one way to write, not necessarily the only way
7. Top to bottom - again - optional
6. Everyone loves them a happy face
5. It's okay to send all your Jewish friends cards that say "Merry Christmas," because that's what Rojo wanted to say, and who are you to argue?
4. What's not to love about a 12 1/2 year old that is more excited for Santa than he's ever been?
3. It's okay to open all the windows and eat all the chocolate from the Advent calendar on the very first day
2. Some ornaments are just too precious to put on the tree - instead, put them under your pillow and have a "sleep over"
1. The Christmas spirit is alive and well, and living in our home

I love the idea of having a sleepover with your favorite ornaments! I can totally picture him in his bed surrounded by these precious tokens.

I am in agreement with the ornament sleep over idea. It could become a family tradition. It is a wonderful idea. I love this kid and you too.

OH.MY.GOD.

Rojo is at it again.

First of all - why the hell not write over your mistakes?!! Brazilliant!

My 9 year old is fully on to the Santa thing - but OPTS to believe, and, at 5 feet tall and 94 lbs., is giddier than a gay man at a Barbra Streisand concert over the whole holiday.

I LOVE THAT about our kids.

Rojo has got it going ON.

How many times do I have to tell you?
