My daughter is driving me nuts too, she's 9, and this is the first year she hasn't believed in Santa
, but she's bugging the heck out of me to open presents early. I'm holding fast though, nothing before Christmas Eve!
Reading the posts about the kids learning that Christmas is Baby Jesus birthday reminds me of my daughter when she was younger, and first figured that out. I told her we always make a birthday cake for Jesus, since it's his birthday. She was absolutely convinced that he was coming to our house on Christmas Eve for birthday cake and ice cream!
