Things My 8 Yr Old Niece Gets Pumped About at Christmas

  1. When we have matching robes by accident
  2. When she gets new socks as a gift, even though they were cruelly wrapped in an iPhone box
  3. When I make party Potatoes, But who wouldn't like cheesey potatoes topped with potato chips, that my family calls a 'vegetable'
  4. When we have our annual cookie making day, and her mom calls her in sick from school, but she calls it a 'mental health day' and I don't even know where an 8 year old gets this stuff
  5. When she drinks root beer at dinner and we go Christmas shopping after and she has a full on sugar meltdown at target and is an unstoppable tornado
