A: Last Christmas season, I asked many kids what they wanted from Santa. Most said the usual…toys, bikes and dolls. One particular boy, who was 3 years old, caught me off guard by saying “an iPad”. Needless to say, I asked him to ask Santa to send me one too!
That is pretty funny Briana! Thank you for sharing a little of you today!
