SaNTa iS FaT aND RiCH


Today's guest blog post comes from the fabulous SCRAPPIN' JENNY. Please show her some love at her awesome blog-some of the best photography on the internets and she needs an Etsy shop!

There comes a time in most parent’s lives when they are forced to have “that talk” with their children. You know the one. It’s often uncomfortable, you never know quite what to say and in the end, neither you or your child is any happier.

I’m talking about the myth of Santa Claus, of course.

My daughter was in second grade when she came home from school and said “All the Jewish kids at school said that Santa Claus isn’t real. They said it’s just you and Daddy pretending to be him.”

My first thoughts weren’t ones I shared with my daughter because I am a good mother and I’m pretty sure child protective services would have taken her away from me if I’d let loose with the tirade that was running through my mind. Instead I took a deep breath and asked “That’s interesting...what do you think?”

My daughter cocked her head to the side and stared thoughtfully off into space for a moment then said...

“I know there has to be a Santa because you and Daddy would never spend that much money on me.”

I smiled very sweetly at her and said “You keep thinking that sweetie.”

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and that your children never accuse you of being Ebenezer Scrooge.=

Oh, and to find out like this, on someone's blog! It's just all so terrible! I'll never trust people ever again!

Santa does exist. And he leaves free beers at bars. If that isn't magical, I don't know what is.

I overheard a convo that my two older ones were having when they were in 2nd and 3rd grade. The older one was telling the younger, that there was a Santa because "mommy only buys on sale".
