Tonight, while I was giving her and Petunia a bath, Pumpkin informed me that she would be inviting Santa Claus to her wedding when she grows up. Because he would give her lots of gifts.
I have no idea where she learned that weddings and gifts go together- we shipped our gift ahead of time for the one wedding she's been to. But she was confident that inviting Santa Claus was a good idea, because everyone else would only bring one gift, and he would bring lots.
(Also puzzling: in our house, Santa brings each girl exactly one gift. So I'm not sure why she thinks he'll bring lots to her wedding.)
She then thought that maybe she should invite him to her birthday next year, for similarly materialistic reasons. I told her that he doesn't leave the North Pole except at Christmas time.
She nodded and seemed to move on. But a few minutes later, she looked up at me and said, "Mommy, I'll have to get married at Christmas, then."
