When is the right time????
I was just talking to DH on the phone (he's @ work) b/c DH felt the need to call and ask me what I thought about the following question.
Do you think we should tell BS11 before or after Christmas that there is no Santa Claus?
Me,"I'm not sure."
DH,"well I think it is time for him to know that there isn't a Santa. Before the kids at school start making fun of him for still believing there is."
Me,"IDK, my parents never told me there wasn't. I figured it out for myself, but I was younger than BS11 when I did."
DH,"My point exactly. Your parents were reckless in not telling you when you got to a certain age that there was no Santa. My parents told me and my sister, but still did Santa presents."
Me,"I know we should tell him, but I don't know when."
So here is my question you all my fellow SM's....when is the right time or age to tell your kids there is no Santa?
