Trauma at Nana's

The Saturday before Christmas we arrived at Nana's house around dinner time. After unpacking and stretching a little bit we sat down to eat. We hadn't been to Nana's since her new house was finished and Austin had never been to her previous house.

As we were seated eating dinner, we heard a gasp from his little body followed by, "Look Mommy! It's a reindeer!"

Austin had spotted by stepdad's prize buck mounted on the wall.


His excitement soon turned and he grabbed my arm, looked me in the face with a worried and puzzled expression and said, "Mommy, the reindeer is stuck in the wall. Help him! Help him!"

Poor Austin. He's yet to learn that his dinner plate is full of death.

Poor Austin!
So... did you help save the reindeer?

That was great! Kids are so innocent and full of wonder about things.
I'm glad he wasn't worried about Santa being upset!! lol

My sons had a similar reaction to a mounted buck at their uncle's house! My oldest (then 4 years old) kept one eye on it throughout the visit... He kept expecting it to move. (too creepy, IMO)

:D Have a great new year!
