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!
