Santa Brunch

S o if you read my blog and don't let your kids believe in Santa, please don't be offended but I've had three instances this year where kindergarten-age kids have told my kids that Santa isn't real. It just kills me that one of them said it to my 3-year old. I totally understand if you don't want your children to believe in Santa for whatever reasons you might have but it is so frustrating for our family who chooses to let our children believe. Really, can't we just let them believe for as long as we can? I think if B and I chose the path that we weren't going to let our kids believe, we'd really stress to them that some kids DO believe and to not go and tell them otherwise. One child in my daughter's class actually said, "Santa is dead." I'm afraid to ask why that is a better belief to have than Santa exists. But I digress....

Anyway, after all of the discussions about the reality of Santa were over, my kiddos went and visited Santa's "co-worker." We had a lovely brunch with Santa and even got to visit with two reindeer.

Pin It!
