“Would Santa vacation in Texas?”

“Santa on vacation.” On display at our local Chili’s.

While we were munching on chips and salsa other day at Chili’s, The Four-Year-Old’s eye was caught by a picture of a man with a long white beard and long white hair wearing a glittering sombrero and dark sunglasses.

The Four-Year-Old: “Mommyo, is that Santa Claus on vacation?”

Mother: “I don’t know. Do you think Santa would go on vacation to Texas?”

The Four-Year-Old: “Yes.”

A slight pause while The Four-Year-Old chomps on a chip. Then, “Do the elves get to go too?”

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
