This afternoon, I decided to treat my son to one of his favorite holiday movies, The Santa Clause II.
We get to the scene in the movie where all the fictional characters of childhood are holding their annual meeting. The camera pans the group, and Mikey names each one as they appear on the screen:
"Santa...The Tooth Fairy...Cupid...The Easter Bunny...Mother Earth...Moses..."
I didn't have the heart to tell him that it was actually The Sandman!
