Dun. Dun. Dun.... Yes I am asking the question just want some advice on my personally situation. Let me give you some background:
So last christmas "Santa" got my oldest daughter her very first Barbie Doll House which she had been asking for since the year before that. Well the doll house got broken like some toys do when little girls play with them... Well flash forward to a couple of weeks ago when we were walking around Target. My oldest sees the New Barbie Doll House and after running over to it and checking out she makes some comment of " I'm gonna ask Santa for that" well as hearing this I know 1. We can't afford it (we moved to Hawaii in July we are still getting settled in and in December we maybe looking at other rental houses cause our lease ends in January) 2. My family/His family can't buy it the shipping of it isn't worth it
So I say to her "Well honey, we'll see Santa might not be able to bring you that doll house this year" and she goes "He brought me one last year in Texas why would Hawaii be any different" and of course I didn't have an answer so I just had to repeat myself "Well we'll see"
This isn't the first time she has questioned things about the Great Jolly one and I feel bad fibbing to her cause then she believes me and I'm really big on not lying so I already feel bad about it. And knowing that we aren't going to be able to get that doll house I know it might be time to talk to her about the truth but is it to early??? She's 8 now going to be 9 in May but she's pretty smart and understands a lot more then I did at 8. My biggest fear is that she'll ruin Christmas for her 6 year old sister if we tell her the truth.... Ugh I'm so conflicted....
