This year, we made an important decision for our toddler: we're committed to perpetuating the Santa Clause myth. We're doing it because, well, what other opportunities does she have to believe -- really believe -- in magic?
We couldn't think of any.
So bring on the cookies and milk, get Daddy to walk on the roof and shake sleigh bells at midnight, because Santa Clause is coming to our house…until our kid wises up. Hopefully, we'll make some great memories before that day arrives.
If you did the whole Santa thing, how long did it take before your kids figured it out?
And check out When Did Kids Stop Believing in Santa, a short NPR interview with kids explaining how the Santa love died.
