In my picture book, DEAR SANTASAURUS, I get to dream up what a mischievous dinosaur would write to Santasaurus. It was so much fun to write about Ernest B. Spinosaurus’s misadventures and his ever-evolving wish list. I see parts of me in the character and parts of my children (and even parts of my dogs).
Writing letters to Santa is a fun tradition that doesn’t last long enough. Kids grow up too fast. So I’m going to treasure these letters because before I know it they will be writing e-mails (or texts or tweets) to friends and boyfriends and this precious, fun time will be gone.
I hope you enjoy every moment of your holiday, even the crazy parts, and especially the parts that will soon only be memories.
