Believe

Grace received this letter from a classmate yesterday. She brought it home and showed it to me.






Grace's response when I asked her what she thought about it:

"I guess HER parents give her presents. Santa comes to this house Mom."


That's my girl.
Believe.

I hope I dont lose friends on this...my boys dont believe in Santa either. We always told them we get presents cause we didnt want them to feel cheated if we couldnt afford/get what they wanted. And think Santa just didnt deliver.
I also wanted them to appreciate the people who helped us this year while we were in a tough spot. (Not that before they thought Santa was real).

BUUUUUT my boys never ever ever would tell another child because I have explained to them that some people DO the "santa tradition" and they play along and get excited with them.
that lil girl is bitter! :(

Its ok to not believe yourself but its not ok to shatter another kids dream. way to go Grace for knowing!!!

Penny we are still friends right?! :)
MERRY XMAS!!!

Hey there Lexi - oh we are WAY friends sister - no need to worry one bit. Hey, every family does what they do and we are all good. Whatever works for your family is what I say. I just didn't want Grace's friend to tell her so strongly in a note - it seemed, well, rather, well, not nice, shall we say?
Grace will soon enough learn what the real deal is, in her own way, on her own time. Then I hope she turns right around and starts to believe again.
It's all ok - whether you or your kids believe or don't believe. Christmas still comes and we are all still blessed. Have a great one!
Merry Christmas everyone!

YOU rock! And I totally agree! If justice wrote a note like that id be upset! You have one strong willed lil girl. But u already knew that! Yes merry xmas everyone!!!

Laura said...

Hey - I still believe!

My question is - - - why would that little girl write that note? It seems so mean! Last year in Emma's class a girl told Emma that there was no Santa and I asked the mom about it - - - their family was like Lex --- they were just honest with the kids and didn't do Santa which is FINE but they should let others believe and not ruin the magic!

BELIEVE!

Merry Christmas!!

That's bullsh!t.

If (when) my kids stop believing I am going to tell them that they may absolutely not tell someone else. Besides, it's the spirit, not the actual person that we should believe in.
