So at dinner, my 8 year old asked if we put presents under the Christmas tree instead of Santa. I asked him where he heard that. He said a kid at school told him that he slept on the couch and woke up to his parents putting gifts out.
Yes, I'm one of those moms that wants him to be a kid a little longer, so I asked him what he thought. He said he heard that if you don't believe, then Santa won't come. I just told him that's what I thought too.I loved believing in Santa as a kid and I am not ready for that magic to be over. (And I don't want him to spil the beans to little brother!)
(**Yes, I know technically it's "lying". I'm willing to risk it for a little extra fun in childhood before real life comes crashing down...)
