I'm making this as inappropriate just in case! We don't want to spoil Santa for our kids, right?
Anyway, how do you feel about playing Santa?
I've realized as my 5 year old gets older, I really do love it. It's sort of exciting, trying to be all quiet and sneaky and not get caught! We live in a small apartment and my son's room is right on the other side of the wall from the living room. I have to KNOW he's asleep before I can pull out all the goodies! Staying up is pretty difficult for me - he usually takes forEVER to fall asleep, and most of the time I'm in bed before that happens... so staying up later is a challenge! It definitely pays off in the morning, though, when he's all excited! Luckily he's a pretty sound sleeper once he is asleep, so if I do make noise we're fine. I think this year I'll turn on a movie to (hopefully) block any sounds I might make!
Once he woke up at about 1:30 in the morning (he was almost 3 at the time) and helped himself to his gifts because he'd heard Santa's reindeer on the roof, he said. I have no idea what he had heard, because I was definitely in bed at the time!
