"Ho, ho, ho," he boomed and stretched out his arms. Adam' froze in his tracks. I took him by the hand and smiled, urging, "It's okay, come on and talk to Santa." A little arm wrapped around my leg. Big brown eyes peeped from the folds of my coat. I encouraged. Santa's elf encouraged. Santa begged and bribed with a candy cane, but all to no avail. Santa needn't have worried about baby's dampness either. A lollipop was all she would tolerate from the gentleman. Finally, there was nothing left to do but trudge back through the cold and wind to the car. What a sight we must have been - a disgusted and disappointed young mother carrying a damp baby with a sobbing 3-year-old in tow. Suddenly a man walking toward us burst into laughter. "I'm sorry," he chuckled, "but did you know your little boy has his pants on backward?" "Of course," I thought sarcastically. "I always dress him that way." But sure enough - not only were the pants on backward, but the fly was unzipped. And there was more . "His cowboy boots are on the wrong feet, too," the man chortled. Today, in one of my trunks, there is a picture from another day of the kids on Santa's knee. But the memory I treasure more is of that, funny little threesome in Oklahoma City. By SHARI BERGBOM Post Staff Writer Santa Claus is not hard to find in Palm Beach County. He's visiting just about every major shopping center. But back in the 1960s when I lived in a little town in Oklahoma, a visit to Santa was a major excursion. I'll never forget the first one I attempted. The morning was murky and cold. A 40-m.p.h. wind whipped the red Oklahoma dust as I bundled my two children in the car for the 45-mile trip to Oklahoma City. The baby was disinterested, content to chew on an Oreo cookie and -leave visions of sugar plums to her 3-year-old brother Adam. He chattered excitedly about the race car Santa was going to bring him. It was still the heyday of downtown shopping. Christmas screamed from every store window and people, jostled by the wind and each other, filled the streets. With a 30-pound baby on my hip and my son by the hand, we made our way through the gusty winter canyons of the city to the department store where Santa held court. Our eyes were tearing from the wind as with aching arms I shifted the ' baby to a new position and boarded the elevator. Adam tugged on his coat zipper, his dark hair damp against his forehead which snuggled inside his heavy parka. There were signs of another type of dampness on the baby as at last, we arrived in the toy department.
