So, Allison came into my room last night and said very seriously, "Mom, can I ask you some questions about something I've been thinking about all week?" I told her of course, but was wondering???? She said, "Mom, does Santa really have reindeer that fly?" I could tell that she's been suspicious of the whole Santa/Easter Bunny/Tooth fairy thing for awhile and knew this was inevitable. I talked to her about how these things are just a fun tradition for little kids, but Mom and Dad take care of Christmas, Easters, etc. She found us out! She said there were just too many stories: is it the elves make the toys, you have to help pay Santa for the toys, or the toys come from the store? I guess our stories just didn't wash in the end..... She also noticed that the tooth fairy's handwriting looked a lot like mine... oops!
I found some letters I've been saving to give to Allison that she wrote to Santa over the years- I thought you might like them!
