Santa - Come Back!

So in Kindergarten, K was somewhat isolated from older kids. They didn't eat in the cafeteria with the older ones and separated them in extended day. But K started day camp last week. The kids are more mixed K-5. On the second day, K lost a tooth. When she was putting under her pillow at bedtime she says to me "Mom, do you give me Christmas presents?" I said of course. She says "But does Santa give me presents - or is it just you?" I was so sad. I thought we would have more time!!! I said, "why are you asking that?" She said "A boy in my camp says he doesn't get presents from Santa, they are all from his Mom and Dad. He says Santa isn't real" I said, "well maybe he isn't a very good boy, and that's why Santa doesn't bring him presents." She thought about that and said, "he seems ok". I asked her what she thought. She said "I think Santa is real" and I said, "well, there you go".

I think she is ok for now..but I was so sad that it happened so quick. And its summer -what were these kids doing talking about Santa anyway???? Sheesh!

we are off to the beach for a few days....will try and post....

bummer. abby is with some older kids too for part of the day - this weekend she kept asking me when she could wear a bra like some of the 5th graders. I think I liked isolation better.

Have fun at the beach!

You came up with just the right answer. It just might last a little longer. Enjoy your trip.

I remember when my oldest told me he knew Santa was not real. I told him if he still wanted present he would believe. He is 18 now and as far as it goes with me he still believes. We have a 9 year old. I tell my older boys every year that they better not say a word to their little brother about Santa. I think at 9 he now knows but a word has not been said to me. I think they still want the presents.

That stinks. I dread the day the boys stop believing. It makes Christmas much for fun.
