I saw a blog post titled something like “How to tell your child that there is no Santa.” WTF???? And there were point by point directions on how to do so. Really? Yes, really.
As a parent I was horrified and disgusted. Who would actually sit down and tell their child that there is no Santa? Hasn’t that blogger ever watched Miracle on 34th Street? Has she no heart? Is she just plain mean and weird? Does she have no holiday spirit? Is she without imagination? Has she no joy in her soul? Does she have a soul?
Things you sit down and talk to your children about:
What you DO NOT have A TALK with your kids about:
- The virtues of no imagination
- The virtues of no fun
- The virtues of dullness
- The virtues of a humorless existence
- The virtues of boring
- The virtues of nit picking
- The virtues of being MEAN
I know, I know, the dark Vampire bitch is coming out tonight…sorry…but you know how it is with me sometimes. I’m a mom. Mom’s have to believe in magic. We have to believe in imagination. We have to believe in FUN. Otherwise why be a parent at all? Right?
Besides ALL Vampires KNOW there IS a Santa. We’re creatures of the night so we’re up all night. We see those reindeer. We see the fat man. We’ve been seeing him for hundreds of years.
And to all a good night!
