waiting to be the star in the nativity play
It's funny how things happen.
Remember this post about no santa
Well just when I thought I would never have to explain about all this
Miss G is a Santa Believer.
Yes I gasp!
Very hard to do in this house! Yet she has managed it!
Now we watch santa movies and read santa books ~ I'm not that much of a hater.
I just don't lie to my kids.
So even though we've (well her sisters mainly) have told G that Santa isn't real, she still believes he is.
This has just started in the last few months. She didn't believe last year as far as I was aware.
It was bought to my attention when we were reading a Nativity story.
G was like:
"This story isn't about Christmas! Where's Santa?
Christmas is about Santa who brings your presents down the chimney"
The funny thing is she knows the real story. She plays with her nativity set everyday since we've put it up. She was the star in Christmas play. She can recite the nativity story in Family Home Evening.
I think these two Christmas stories are exisiting in two different realities in her head.
I blame Dora personally. Back 3 months ago she rented a Christmas Dora DVD.
Since then she's been like "Santa lives in the sky in the snow place and gives you presents"
It's Ok. Its kinda cute. I can handle it.
I'll support her in what may possibly be a very short lived phase.
I even went to take her to see Santa but she refused to get closer than the second story balcony.
She doesn't love him THAT MUCH!
