The Christmas is coming. The kindergarten asked each of us to bring a present for our kids to the kindergarten secretly and then a kindergarten teacher who dressed like Santa Claus will give these presents to our kids this friday. “Kids would be very happy and surprised to get gift from the Santa Claus.” Miaomiao’s teacher explained to our parents two weeks ago while telling us this news.
Actually Miaomiao liked toy guns very much at that time and we just had bought a new toy gun for her as Christmas present. So after we heard the notification from Miaomiao’s teacher, we planned to take the new toy gun to the kindergarten then. But when Miaomiao came back from the kindergarten last wednesday, her words changed my idea. She said to me, “You don’t need to buy any presents to me, because the Santa Claus will give present to us this Christmas, mom.” “Oh, really? Do you know which present he will give you?” I smiled and asked her. “I know. The Santa Claus will give our favorite present. He will give me a magnifying glass, as i want a magnifying glass.” I was surprised and asked her, “You don’t want a toy gun?” “No, i want a magnifying glass.” Then i thought i need to buy her a magnifying glass. So at last i bought a magnifying glass and packaged two lollipops with it as her present to the kindergarten. And the toy gun would be our present to her for Christmas.
And today is friday, the celebration day for Christmas in the kindergarten. The Christmas party is held in the forenoon in the kindergarten. And all the kids get their presents from the “Santa Claus”. When i pick Miaomiao up in the noon, she is happy and says that she gets a present from her teacher. When she checks her present at home, she is very happy to play her magnifying glass and eats lollipop. “It’s more funny than the toy gun.” She says to me while watching multiple things with the magnifying glass. I’m very glad she likes it and think it maybe her most favorite present for the Christmas. But i’m wrong. When Sam comes home at night and gives a box of chocolate balls for her as present, she is more excited and happy. “Do you want this magnifying glass? I can give it to you.” She says to her dad Sam. “I’m so happy, oh, chocolate balls, i like them so much.” Sam laughs and says to me, “Look, i know her more.” Then i realize chocolate is her most favorite present.
Anyhow, as long as she is happy, it’s a nice Christmas. Merry Christmas.
