Christmas in July
Hello peeps, I have a funny story to share. I finally decided to tell my son that Santa doesn't exist. My family was convinced he already knew and he was just playing along but I knew he still believed. He questioned me several times in the past but I quickly told him what he wanted to hear.
I had to tell him because he's already working on his Christmas list. Every time he sees something he wants he writes it down. When I first saw the list I was shocked. There were several pricey things on it that I knew he was not going to use or get.
So today, the conversation started like this.
Me " Yes, D"
D'Angelo " I'm going to add a laptop to my Christmas List"
Me "I think you have too many expensive things on that list"
D'Angelo "OK I'll take stuff off so I can get the laptop and the I Touch "
Me "Do you know the story of Santa Claus"
D'Angelo " Yes, but tell me anyway"
Me " too much to type but I explained the story and mid story"
D'Angelo "WHAT! Don't tell me your Santa"
Me " Yes, honey Jorge and I are the ones that buy you your presents from Santa"
D'Angelo " You broke my heart"
Me " But we can still believe in the magic"
End of conversation, he didn't want to discuss it further and besides the fact that he's under the weather I think it depressed him because he went to sleep at 7:00pm. Poor thing, I busted his bubble.
It's not easy being a parent and I wish I could pretend forever but for real we totally can't. Wait until I tell him about the Tooth Fairy and The Easter Bunny. I'm in trouble. LOL
