The older kids had all hung their stockings carefully so Santa could fill them. My youngest child hung his tiny sock between the others, stood back to take a look and disgustedly said, "That's not fair! Theirs is bigger than mine!"

I explained that one day his stocking would be bigger too, and went about cleaning the house.
Not long after I heard my oldest son call, "Mom, you better get in here." I dropped the dishrag in the sink and dragged myself in to see what was going on. Mike stood looking up with a silly grin on his face while Shawnie stood with his hands on his hips and a very satisfied look on his as he looked up to where the stockings were hung.
I followed their gaze and nearly fell on the floor laughing when I saw that my wise little son had nailed a pair of my pantie hose up for Santa to fill.
Yes, this really happened. About thirty years ago. Some things we do not forget.
