Are your kids at that age where they’re asking about Santa constantly? I have an 11 year old who is always telling me that the kids at school have already told him all about Santa and that you can buy the ‘Elf on the Shelf’ at Target. But still, no matter how many times he brings it up around me, I simply tell him that ‘if you don’t believe, you don’t receive.’ I know he wants to believe, but he’s at that age where he knows what’s going on, but I’m still not prepared to have ‘that talk’ with him. I love the magic of Christmas and want to preseve it as long as possible for my kids, plus the fact that my 11 year old son has two younger brothers means I want him to not spoil anything for them too. After reading this letter, I feel much better about my decision too!
Nicki Adams posted these pictures to her facebook page and I dare you not to laugh while reading them. It seems that Nicki’s 10 year old daughter Belle was asking her relentlessly about Santa, so Nicki and her husband finally decided to give in and tell her the truth. Needless to say, Belle was not impressed! She slipped a note under Nicki’s door that read;
“You have no idea what you just did. I really tried to believe. Everyone told me it’s your parents. I can’t believe you anymore. Is the Easter bunny real? How ’bout the tooth fairy, huh?”
Belle goes on to write;
“You just ruined a 10 year old child’s LIFE thanks. Nothing will make me feel better U lied about something I loved thatBROKE my heart.”
However it might have been the next piece of paper Belle delivered to her mom, featuring a drawing of a hand with the middle finger sticking up with the words #middlefingeremoji that really let us know how Belle feels about learning the truth!
I think this is so funny and I love that Nicki shared it on facebook, but it also reaffirms my decision to not confirm my son’s suspicions just yet! Keep reading on the next page to see Belle’s epic letter to her parents, and let me know when you decided to tell your kids the truth about Santa Claus.[continueReading]
