Santa Clause Is Watching You!

Well it's that time of year again! Time to warn your children that "Santa Clause is watching!". When they decide to scream and cry, whine and tell you "no!" they won't do their chores/homework/bath/go to bed. So you break out the old "Santa's watching" threat. I remember when they were little and it worked. They would be so worried they wouldn't get presents, or worse - a lump of coal! Now they are older and I think they pretty much know that Santa will be coming down the chimney no matter what.

And yes, my 7, 9 & 10 year olds believe in Santa. How awesome is that? I think it's sweet and precious. They are only innocent for a short time, so I want them to enjoy it. Pretty soon all their Christmas illusions will be ruined. I remember when I was a kid and didn't believe in Santa anymore. I spent my time waiting to sneak around my parents closest for presents. Yes, I was a naughty little child. Well, kinda. C'mon, I had to make sure I wasn't really getting a new feather duster and broom with matching dust pan like my Dad said.

Now that I look back, I love that he joked with me like that. Then, not so much. I was joking with one of my sons like that last night. Ah, the memories.

That is so fun when your kids still believe. I know I will be sad when I have no more little believers left. sigh. But for now my two and four year olds are Santa watchers, but my 11 year old has turned in her "I believe" button. Enjoy while we can, right?

btw, I had to laugh out loud at your post on the baby interrupting you and hubby...LOL. We are too tired (well, really me) to even plan let alone take action, hehe.

That's terrific that your older kids still believe! My 7 year old still does, but I'm worried this may be the last year. You've given me hope!

Wow. I'm impressed that they all still believe. My daughter is 6 and buys everything hook, line and sinker. I was worried that we don't have many more years left of the fun. There is hope.
