Max’s Christmas Trouble: Day 23

Reginald’s Diary, December 23rd, 2011

Shoveling snow is cold work. By the time I finished the driveway, it was only 7AM and I wanted to crawl back into bed. But I snuck Noah into the living room, so that Mother could sleep in. I made him egg-in-a-basket for breakfast. And tried to teach Noah how to say “Merry” for “Merry Christmas”—except it sounds a lot like “Weeeese.” But it’s a start.

Must look up recipes. Have decided to host a brunch tomorrow. And Mother says as long as nothing explodes she’s happy to give the cooking to someone else.

Spent the evening rewriting my Christmas coupons…

Christmas coupon for Dad:
I will clean the car for you. (GOOD FOR ONE THREE CAR WASHES.)

Christmas coupon for Mom:
I will cook one meal for you. (GOOD FOR TWO DAYSANYDAY OF THE WEEK.)

Christmas coupon for Sophie:
I will not get into your things. (FOREVER A LONG TIME.)

Christmas coupon for Noah:
I will play with you. (GOOD FOR TWO EVENINGS OF THE WEEKWHEN YOU HAVE NO ONE ELSE TO PLAY WITHNEED ME TO.)
