If you want my opinion....

{disclaimer...this is simply my awesome opinion...I completely understand if you don't agree.....but I don't understand why you don't agree...but it's okay to not agree with me...but it's lame if you don't.}

I think it's soooooooooo lame to tell kids there is no Santa. ESPECIALLY when they are under the age of um lets say 25. he he he..or should I say ho ho ho.

No for real....Today Elle told me that her friend at school told her that Santa is pretend. Now let me remind you Elle is in KINDERGARTEN! So of course I told her the truth ..."Elle if you don't believe in Santa...he doesn't bring you presents....Santa is real duh." and to this truth she said......"I know mom, that's why I believe and love Santa" awwwww...say it with me awwww.

I then did tell her that some kids don't believe in Santa, but we do.

But makes me sad that there are such young kids that don't believe.
So say it with me
I Believe

YELL IT.....
I BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!

I totally agree. I see moms on all these parenting forums who are all, "You're a terrible person to condone lying to your children! Do you want to raise them thinking that it's okay and right to LIE?!" and I just feel bad for their kids. :( Way to take the magic out of it.

I'm with you on this one for sure! It seems like people expect kids to be grown ups way too early.
Good for you for not caving in and for reassuring her that YOU still believe too! I loved the way you responded to this and I'm totally going to do the same thing if Jonah ever asks.

Me three. I can't believe she was already told that in kindergarten!!! Thanks for the warning though - didn't think I'd have to deal with that one until at least second grade!
