We were all still feeling the great about the Hanukkah party when we awoke on Sunday morning. My wife and I were still aglow about Kai’s interactions, while Kai was excited about his presents. He wanted to get started on one of his new Lego sets right away. Last year he even climbed up the ladder to put the lights and ornaments high up on the tree. But not this year. He was mildly interested when I took out the boxes of decorations and started to string the lights. But soon he wanted to do something else. “Mom, I’m going to work on my Legos.” “Hey, what about the Christmas tree?” I asked. “Dad, you can do that yourself.” Sigh. Hanukkah 1. Christmas 0. He worked on his new Lego diligently with only a short break for lunch.
