Ok so I am on the fence and looking for suggestions/thoughts...
My DD is almost 3 and I am not sure I want to tell her about Santa. She already knows a little about him from the mall, music and books. But I am not sure I want to...well...lie to her about it. I feel uncomfortable about it. But at the same time I believed in Santa and most kids and adults I know did at one time. I think maybe part of my hangup is I remember calling a "meeting" with my mom when I was about 7 because my older brother had told me Santa wasn't real. I sat my mom down and had a "serious" talk with her and told her I wanted the truth...lol. Maybe I was mad that she lied to me, I don't remember. I certainly don't have any negative feelings about it now. And I think it's really cute when kids get excited about Santa. It's just that I feel weird and uncomfortable putting on the whole dog and pony show for my DD. Not to mention the Easter Bunny, and the tooth fairy.
So I'd love to hear from some people who didn't do the whole santa thing....what was your & your kids experience? Do your older kids now feel they missed out?
Do any people do a middle of the road kind of thing....like maybe Santa doesn't leave presents under the tree but you read books about him and visit him at the mall?
