This year’s Christmas cards were my favorites of all time. He designed them and drew them. I took dictation. He was quite clear about what he wanted the card to say. You’re sure you want me to write “Megatron” on here? Yes, right there, he said pointing to the right spot. I’m not sure what Megtron has to do with Christmas, but I carried on and did what he told me.
And then my little southpaw and I sat down at the kitchen table with a rainbow of colored markers and signed them, he signed them. Watching him focus with such intensity on the task of writing his name and learning with each stroke of the pen was the greatest gift. Sometimes his name was illegible, but every time it was perfect. Sometimes he got tired of writing letters and decided to just add a picture. A robot, a squid, a lobster. Merry Christmas! Here’s a lobster!
But the best part? The kisses. He so wanted to send love to his friends and family that he puckered up and laid a few smooches on the inside of some of the cards. And then he marked the spot with an X.
So from our robot family to yours, wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday season!
