Yesterday I took Little Man to the mall. We waited in line for less than 5 minutes. I plopped my baby on the stranger's lap, got pictures taken, paid for them and we were on our way.
And the pictures, fwiw, are adorable.
But it brings to the fore the big question: do you perpetuate the myth of Santa (and the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy) or do you tell your kid the truth? For this year, it obviously doesn't matter much. But starting next year, we need to make a choice.
I'll admit, I don't feel like I went through big trauma when I found out that the Santa gifts came from Mom and Dad, but I know some kids do. Do I continue to lie to my baby and say, "Santa yay!" because lets face it, Santa is about harkening to some time of childhood innocence? Or, do I just say the gifts are from us but don't ruin it for other kids.
So what do you all think? Santa or Not?
