  • We tell her that santa needs help so we help him out that way if she wakes up she knows we are helping.

  • Well, mine knows there's no Santa, but just tell them Santa won't come if they aren't asleep. Then wait till they're good and asleep to bring out the presents and stuff.

  • It's not a problem for us cause once the kids are asleep they're out cold! We just carry the presents in from the neighbours house and set them up downstairs!

  • we tell them that santa wont come until everyone is asleep. They are in bed and asleep by 8 pm every night anyway, then we wait until just before we go to bed, put everything out and then go to bed.

  • I'm always afraid I'll get caught and then I'll have spilled the beans about Santa and they'll remember it forever lol.
