It started last year. My then 7-year old asked but I was able to put off an answer. This year he sat me down, looked me square in the eye, and asked what most parents dread to be asked at Christmas time. "Is Santa real?" "Oh, no!", I thought. My mind raced with several responses to the question. But my most prominent thought was... my baby is growing up.
I explained to Sun Kissed Boy #1 that different families have different thoughts about Santa. In our house we Believe! He went on to point out all the reasons he didn't think Santa was real. Some of them being the fake beard and fake boots. However, affirmation of Santa's existence came when we went to the mall to pick up my Mac.
