Flannel heart under the tree.
By; Dayton Weldin These flannel pajamas are so soft, this rocks! I cant believe mom let me open them early this year. Christmas morning is just 4 days away and dancing around my house showing my new pajamas off to all my relatives is how I choose to spend them.
"Hey uncle Jeff you wanna feel my pajamas? They 're new! Mom let me open them early this year!" I beamed with excitement. He sat up in his chair and touched my sleeve with his hairy jungle arms.
"Oh wow, those are really somthin ' kido." He said before he sat back down careful not to spill his beer.
"Thanks! Do you know where my dad is? I wanna show him my new pajamas too!" I was jumping up in down blocking his view of the television waiting for

That’s weird. Oh well, her loss I guess cause these bad boys are soft. I cant wait to show my dad! I hope he likes them, I saved up all my money from my chores and I bought him the same pair. It 's a surprise present, he doesn’t know about it. I 've been asking for these for months, practically begging on my knees every time I passed them at k-mart with my mom, and she 'd say "Oh, maybe someday. You just never know." I 'm just so happy right now I cant believe I actually got them! This is gonna be so great, this is the first time I 've celebrated Christmas with my mom and dad at the same time since I was four years old. I 'm six now, I actually haven 't seen my mom and dad in the same room since the day he moved out. That’s mostly why I 'm so excited. I Just wanna see him. Is this what a Christmas miracle feels like? Cause I don’t think I 've ever been this excited for a …show more content…
Why was she doing that?
"I need you to listen to me. Your dad isn 't gonna be here... Because he got into a car accident on the way. I 'm so sorry hun."
What? A car accident? Is he okay? Can we go see him? Can we call him? Can I call him? Are you sure? All these questions were pouring into my mind and flooding my brain and I guess my eyes were what they used to drain them because warm yet chilling streams of tears rolled down my cheeks. My heart was like a rock ripping through my guts. This isn 't happening. how could this be happening? Tonight was supposed to be perfect. A Christmas miracle.
All these thoughts running through my mind and I can only muster up one measly sentence before I completely break down.
"But, we were supposed to get our pictures taken together in our matching pajamas."
There it was. I broke down. I was bawling for the first time since I heard of there divorce. Practically screaming into my mothers arms as she held me. I 'm coughing and choking as I sob. it feels like I 'm swallowing my own throat. It burned. She just rocked me and told how sorry she was that this happened. Me too. So much for Christmas

    In life there are numerous things to be amped up for. There is only one thing that stood out and conveyed delight to my heart and that was meeting my dad for the first run through.

At 4 years old my mom gave me a photo of my dad sitting on a cocoa adoration seat with a white foundation. On that day I put that photograph in the peak of my wooden obsolescent dresser mirror, as an indication of the solid uncouth man I may meet one day.…
