When my wife was getting ready to leave for work this morning, he kept asking her if she is really Santa Claus. Her response was classic, "Do I look like a jolly fat guy?" But he kept asking if she was the one that brought the presents.
I knew this wasn't going to last forever, but it is really sad that my oldest is starting to not believe in Santa anymore. I truly believed until I was 13-14 years old. I don't want to tell him yet, I was hoping to get through one last Christmas with him truly believing. Hopefully he won't question it again for a little while, but reality is coming and we must let him know probably sooner rather than later.
This has really upset me, I am not ready for him to not believe anymore. I just really don't want him to ruin it for his little brother. I still believe in Santa Claus, and I need to let him know that Santa was a real person and we have to keep his legacy going.

I am going to have to pick up the book "The Santa Club" that was reviewed here a few years ago, and let him read it to try to not ruin it for his brother. http://christmasfinest.com/2011/09/1...he-santa-club/
Our oldest who is 12, is also the oldest amoung all the cousins too, questioned us relentlessly 2 years ago ... all the kids at school were talking about it and were giving her a hard time cause she believed. So we told her that the Santa was very much real just in a different way then we are. We asked her what Santa meant to her .. her reply was smiles, happiness, love, excitement ... We told her as long as she continued to feel thay way that Santa would always be real to her. We went on and explained that yes we do buy the present but just because we do doesnt mean Christmas is any less magical then before. That now instead of just being the reciever of that magic, she is now the reciever AND giver of that magic. She has been very good about keeping the "secret" from her little brother and little cousins and is just as excited about Christmas now as she was 5 years ago. Your son may just surprise you...

back from work, stayed an extra hour as someone called in sick. Chilly out but not as cold as it was this morning. Have to pick up may daughter in a bit and then can come home and just relax. Well, not totally relax, I do have a few things to do!
