I have to ask if anyone else does this. In the past Santa has come to several homes for SS and on different days. DH and I always thought it was dumb but we played along for SS's sake. Last year DH and I felt he was getting too old to play up the silliness of it all, so since his BM had him for the first week of winter break we didn't give him any gifts from Santa at our house (he only got gifts from us). This year it is flipped, and we won't be putting Santa on any gifts or feeding into any Santa fantasy, so his mom is going to have Santa stop at her house the weekend before so she can have one more year of playing it up for him. The kid will be ten years old come Xmas time! We think it is plain ridiculous at this point and getting a bit far fetched.
Anyone else have Santa come to multiple homes on different days for their kids? Anyone else think this is flippin' ridiculous?

For the love of GOD he is a KID. Let him be a KID. Why is everyone in such a rush to make kids grow up. I "figured it out" at 9 yrs old and my mom said hat if I stopped believing then the magic went away and the gifts get WAY smaller. It wasn't a threat and it preserved the magic of the holiday for me still. Christmas is my favorite holiday! I am with AJ. Not your place. And I would say the same thing if the situation was reversed...AND if you are the one who tells him that is what he will always remember.

How do I break my son's habit of only drinking things that are warm/hot?
