Welcome to my first post on motherhood. You know I will keep to the same humorist tone with that said I am going in:
Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, and Tooth Fairy are just a few of the fairy tale characters that kids learn about. What do kids really know about these characters? Is it what we tell them or what they see on tv? For instance my sons tooth came out and he did not mention the tooth fairy and when I asked him if he wanted the tooth fairy to visit him he looked at me as if I was crazy. See I have never mentioned the tooth fairy to him nor come to think of it I don’t think he knows what the Easter bunny is either. He learned about Santa Clause in school so it is safe to say that all of these fairy tales I told him nothing about. I was talking to a friend of mines and she said that she tells her kids that mommy and daddy got these gifts and Santa Clause did not contribute time nor money into anything. I was like whoa (she is meaner than me) I have always said to my son that Santa Clause is coming but sometimes I slip and may say that I got him the present or his nosy but goes into my closet and finds stuff. I remember when I found out there was no Santa I was about 8 and came downstairs for a drink of water and saw my mom wrapping presents. I was mad as hell I screamed you lied to me there is no Santa my mom being who she is said, I did not lie you just assumed don’t blame me you believe everything you hear. (come to think of it she never really said there was a Santa, she never corrected me either) Do you tell your kids about the different fairy tale characters? When was the first time you found out there was no Santa Clause?
