holiday conversations

For a while I thought S had resigned herself to her new life in California. I was wrong. A few days ago she started asking about Germany again – maybe her its her internal clock telling her its time for snow and Baumkuchen.

For example, her first most recent mention went something like this:

“Did you know its almost time for Chanukah?”


She was later pacified with a bag of gelt. and did you know that latkes can be used for your latest art project?


There was also this more contemplative mention, which came after S asked to go to the carousel at the mall. The usual carousel horses have been replaced with reindeer for the holidays, something that disturbs S greatly. I tried to explain it to her by telling her that the carousel horses went on vacation. She thought about this for a few moments before coming up with…

“Yeah, in Germany with Barack Obama”

Exactly, little girl, exactly.
