Nov. 27 (UPI) -- The parents of a Texas toddler shared video of the exhausted young girl telling Santa exactly what she wants for Christmas: a nap.

Allen Bartell of Trinity posted a video to YouTube showing his daughter, Linden Mae Bartell, taking her turn on Santa's lap at Bering's Hardware in Houston.


The video shows Linden, tuckered out from a long day of shopping with her parents, sitting on St. Nick's lap and being asked what she wants for Christmas.

The girl responds that she wants to "take a nap."

Santa and the girl then mimed taking a snooze together.

The Bartells said Linden eventually told Santa she would also like a reindeer for Christmas.
