Does/did your child believe in Santa, Tooth Fairy, and all those?
I'm curious about how other moms feel. I know both religious and non-religious people who do and don't tell their kids about them. Some are religious and say that it's not right to believe in anything or anyone other than God. Non religious people say that they don't teach their kids about God, why teach them about Santa. And I have friends whose kids believe in Santa and Tooth Fairy and their religious views have nothing to do with it.
I am atheist and my daughter (5) believes in all the kid make believe people. Just wondering what other parents think.
It's got the tmi tag because I don't want to be responsible for that kid that does believe looking over Mom's shoulder and saying "why's that lady saying they aren't real". :-)

We have made a BIG deal about Santa & The Easter Bunny, no tooth fairy yet since he's 3. I think he believes and he gets all goosey and swears he saw the Easter Bunny at the mailbox last Easter eve. I believed until I was like 16. NO....just kidding, but I do remember believing a lot. I will push it for as long as I can, it cracks me up, but he's too smart for his britches already.
