no glasses for santa

This morning, David offered to take care of Aubie while I slept a bit longer since Matthan was asleep. It didn't last very long--Matthan woke up about 15 minutes later (15 minutes before time for him to eat). Anyway, when I got up to feed Matthan, I didn't see Aubie anywhere. So I went to her room where I thought I heard something and she was crying. After much begging, pleading, you're-gonna-get-a-spanking-if-you-don't-tell-Mommy-what's-wrong-ing, and of course hearing David's side of the story, I finally found out that he had put the wrong movie in for her to watch. He was trying to let her watch a movie that she would really like, so he put in Strawberry Shortcake. But she pitched a fit, so he turned the TV off. So after quite some time, Aubie said, "Remember that movie that we watch?"
I wasn't sure which one she was talking about, so I said, "Which one?"
"The girl say, 'That Santa don't got glasses.' "
Can you guess what movie she's talking about? I knew right away, but David, having watched it for the first time last night, would probably never have guessed what movie it was. I'm sure that's why she got so frustrated.
I'll see if anyone tries to guess before I give the answer.
Hint: Its black and white. My child chose a black and white movie over a color cartoon! Yes! Other hint: The real line is, "... Santa Claus. He's Much better than last year's. At least this one doesn't wear glasses."

Well, I am only venturing a guess, since (sadly) I don't seem to ever watch the classic Christmas movies, though I would love to. My guess is "Miracle on 34th Street" (is that even the name?!). I've never seen it all the way through, but I know it featured the child actress Natalie Wood and she didn't believe in the Santa at Macy's. Seems like a comment a child who doesn't believe would make...so that's my guess. By the way, glad you got a little extra sleep...though it never seems to be enough, does it? Love, KK

It's Miracle on 34th Street...one of my favorite holiday movies. And it's so much better than the version they made a few years back. I am glad you've instilled a love of the classics in Aubie.

Aunt Karen, great guess! You were right.
Lauren! I'm so happy to hear from you. I was just thinking about you before I read your comment! Isn't Miracle on 34th Street the best? Or one of the best anyway :) I hope you're having a happy holiday season. I miss our visits to Ingleside Village Pizza. Don't you? :(

I was going to say "MIracle on
34th St"(really, it's true!) but I see you have already given the answer. Maybe Aubie will come watch it with me--my bunch aren't crazy about old movies--except Ben and he doesn't live here anymore!
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas--twice as much fun with two little ones!!
