Rationale of a Four-year-old
The other day I was struggling to find space to sit down amid all the toys on the extra bed in Matthew’s room. I said to him, “You know, there are children around here who don’t have any toys. Santa will be coming in a couple of months. Maybe we should give some of these away before then.” Matthew answered, “No, Mom, we don’t have to. Santa will give them some of his!” That was quick thinking on his part! I only wish I could have come up with a better response that a hearty laugh.
