About Something

  • My name is Mike. I love being a stay-at-home parent because, most of the time, I have no idea what I'm doing. Each day, I'm learning something new, I think (or I hope).

    >> Why do penguins stink?
    >> Cough, colds and the dentist
    >> Separation Anxiety?

    I also Twitter. Sign-up or follow me to read what I am doing—or thinking—in 140 characters or less. It'll be fun.

4. you tell them that when they stop believing in Santa, he doesn't come anymore! :)


LOL! I absolutely vote for number 3! My kid is easily distracted :)

I always ask them What do you think? and then go from there. If they say "I know he's real but the sissys don't think so" then I tell them that they are right.

If they go the other direction, I tell them that he USED to be real and we carry on his spirit when we give gifts during the season.

Whatever, it works.

Merry Christmas!


yeah, the what-do-you-think always do the trick? and when they try to trap me, I'll say, "am I really that fat? lol!


I think that distraction, whether by word or copious amounts of candy, is the best choice. Then, tell them the truth in June so they have time to get over it before next year.

Love your blog, what a happy stumble this was.



All good answers! Each parent gets to decide! Adults who cry they suffered damage for however Santa was handled during their childhood deserve to pay for the time on the couch.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mike!

I need to visit your photo pages in the New Year. I need to get more organized with my photos in the New Year. Tell me the truth - is it possible? ;)


Merry Christmas to you and your family!


Too cute! Hope that Santa got to pay a visit to your house this year -- Merry Christmas!
