- Oo heck it's nearly just gone pear shaped
Our oldest (8) has just had crisis of faith and is after proof He exists. She hid her stocking in her bedroom as only Santa would be able to find it, Mummy and Daddy wouldn’t and the note with the carrot has asked Rudolph to leave a hoof print in it to prove it was him. Meanwhile the 4 year old is a true believer and bouncing off the walls.
I shall leave it an hour and then consume Santa’s generous portion of single malt, the missus can leave the teeth marks in the carrot this year.Posted 5 years agostumpyjonSubscriber
Think one of her school friends has blabbed, we know which one, I’m polishing the bombers as I type. She’s not completely given up on the idea, she’s very conflicted 😯 , she wants to believe but reality is creeping in. Think we’ll be having a chat before next year so it’s not wrecked for the other one. Don’t think we’ve done too bad getting to 8.
Wife works with a woman who told her 4 year old there was no Father Christmas, apparently seeing as she’d bought all the presents she was taking the credit 😯 😯 😯

Tell her the truth but, also, tell her not to ruin it for her sister? I was about 8.
Our 9 yr old is ‘in on the secret’ although he will be 10 on Thursday. He knows it’s more than his
lifexbox is worth to let on to his wee bro 😆
going by the hyper activity I reckon 18 yr old daughter must still believe though 😆Posted 5 years agomarsdenmanMember
Cannot recall how
oldyoung I was but I remember having my suspicions confirmed one Christmas eve by the sound of my dad truly swearing and cursing as he tried to wrap a football…

From another angle – for many years, the father in law has played Santa at the local primary school.Posted 5 years ago
2 years ago, his granddaughter, pupil at said school, suggests he may be masquerading as father christmas. ‘No, it cannot be’ says the FIL.
‘How come then’ says Granddaughter ‘he sounds like you, has the same watch as you, and the same shoes’
We had a period between about ages 8 and 12 where the kids didn’t really believe but didn’t want to say anything in case the presents dried up.
Getting the older one to play along for the younger is a good plan.
The six year old has just left out supplies for Santa and Rudolph. She insists Santa prefers milk to anything stronger!Posted 5 years agodazhSubscriber
My 8 year old was suspicious after her muslim friends at school let the cat out of the bag (that’s the theory anyway), so Mrs Daz did some online video message from here which has just about persuaded her that her friends don’t know what they’re talking about. It’s also had the benefit of keeping her and her younger sister well behaved for the past two days so the guilt of manufacturing this fiction has been assuaged in a minor way. God knows what next year will be like.Posted 5 years ago
