easter bunny & santa exist?

Posted by   + Show Post
I have thought from the day dd was born i wouldnt keep it a big secret that these 2 didnt exist but everyone else of course leads her to believe they do. Not to mention, I've never gotten thehang of saying santa or the easter bunny insyrad of we or i. Lol I just dread the day i have to tell her 'yea we lied to u this whole time. They r not real. It was just us doing it all.' I remember bring so heartbroken when my mom told me the truth. Only cuz she lied to me, not b/c they weren't real. Guess i gotta go with it tho.

Oh yes.....gotta share this.  When my son was around 4 yrs old, on Easter morning, he woke me up telling me that Santa brought him an Easter basket.  I asked him if he was sure Santa brought it, or did he mean the Easter Bunny.  He was convinced that he saw Santa come up on our front porch, come in the door, and leave his Easter basket.  It was so cute, and I still remind him to this day.  He still laughs about it.

My grandmother lived all her life believing in Santa Claus no one says you have to tell them "oh hey we have lied to you all your life" instead tell them we do our part to help these two out since the world is so big and there are so many children. It would he the same way as explaining why there are 2 different Easter bunnies at the malls. They help out the big guy in charge since they have so much work to do.

I will never dwell on its a lie. My son is 5 and asks why and the Santa at the one store didn't look the same as the one at the zoo. They are different people but they all stand for the same thing.

I don't feel it is a lie. I wasn't hurt when I found out. My girls were not either. I don't know anyone that was devastated finding out. I don't understand the heartbroken kids at all.

My 9 yr old DD said to me the other day "Do you think the easter Bunny is real?" I (of course) said "what do you think?" 

She said "I seriously doubt it. But who brings all the toys and candy... mom?" 

I sat down next to her "I'm going to tell you the same thing my mommy told me when I was about your age. 'The day you stop believing the Easter bunny is coming, is the day that he stops coming' get it?"

"Oh... I love the Easter Bunny" *smile* she said
