“Mommy, is Santa Real?”

Do I seriously have to deal with this question already?  You are only seven!!!  What is with kids these days (Yikes, now I sound like my Grandparents). 

While driving home from school the other day, K2 spouts THE QUESTION.  I responded with, “of course Santa is real”.  And I felt like a fiend for LIEING to my child.  Then I launched into a discourse (which will hopefully prepare them for the big revelation in a few years) regarding how Santa is the MAGIC of Christmas and we chose to believe in him.  She let me know that her friends were saying he isn’t real.  I said, “Well, to us he is and WE BELIEVE.”

Can this conversation be over now before she starts questioning the Tooth Fairy????   I am SOOOOOOOOOOO not ready for this!

    Somehow my 11 year old claims to still believe in Santa–however I think she has cleverly thought that if she admits the truth about Santa we will stop putting gifts out on Christmas morning. I love the “Magic of Christmas” angle–my mom used to say that and I’d go back to my room and think–what the hell?

    Mine are 11, 9 and 5–the questions get worse–believe me!!!! :0

    Thanks to Viva Viagra… we’ve had VERY interesting questions…. Just this week listening to CNN, I got “Mommy, what is a porn star?” Thank you CNN… NOT!!
