To Santa or Not To Santa

Seeing that it is that time of year I have been thinking a lot about the Santa situation. If Donnie and I ever have children I'm not sure if I want to do the whole Santa thing. I'm not sure I want to have Santa for years and years, and then one year say, about that Santa guy, he is not really real.

A couple of days ago, while at a Tastefully Simple party this subject came up. A women was telling how traumatized she was when she found out Santa was not real. I don't think I want to put my child through all this.

However, with this all being said, Santa still comes to visit me ever year. When I go to bed Christmas eve there are no present under the tree, but when I wake up there are presents! I hope not wanting to do Santa with my children does not stop Santa from still visiting me. :-)

If you don't tell you kiddies about Santa....then I will. You have to keep the Santa spirit alive!!! Plus you have to read them some fairy tales.

I cant imagine a child not believing in Santa My daughters just found out this year that Santa is not real and they said MOM we know that your santa, So you would be surprised how fast kids grow up and what they know. So In my opinion it is kind of cruel not to let them believe in santa.
