Wombat and Santa

This morning in the car:

Me: So what do you want for Christmas?
Sarah: A Pegasus with wings that can fly!
Me: Well um..that might not fit under the tree.
Sarah: *exasperated* no, a TOY Pegasus...that flies.
Me: I am not sure if they make that, but I'll see what we can do.
Sarah: And do you know why Santa only comes when we're asleep?
Me: Why?
Sarah: Because he likes it quiet!
Me: I guess he does!
Sarah: Santa has a mustache
Me: And a beard! Like Daddy!
Sarah: No, just a mustache, but it's very long and messy!

This sounds nice. My conversations in the car consist of the following:

"Mama, he-sho-nee-toe."
*Cue me singing "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.*
*Cue me singing "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.*

"Mama, issy bissy pider."
*Cue me singing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," sans hand movements, because I'm driving.*

"Mama, sine lite."
*Cue me singing "This Little Light of Mine."*

"Mama, lissen radio."
*Cue me sighing with relief and turning on the radio*

The 8 and a half hour car trip next week is gonna be a big challenge on my voice...
