daughter 1st grader, 6 1/2 yrs)
seems to know something is up. she's asking sooooooo many questions.
I am curious, if I wait til the day after Christmas is it cool to sit down and explain the magic but the truth to her? She is so aggressively pursuing this that my husband wants to do it now. But I think we can suck a few more weeks of believing out of her. WWYD?
my husband and I both were raised knowing our folks were the gift givers, santa was a hallmark character, so we have zero experience in what to do we're basically to the point of having to flat out LIE TO HER FACE several times a day right now. It's awkward, it seems like she'd rather know truth than be lied to. But I might be wrong.

I would definitely try to enjoy 1 more year w/ the magic. She's a bit young. Maybe go to the library & get the "Night Before Christmas", or rent the 1st Santa Claus Movie w/ Tim Allen, just to renew her faith a little. :)
