I was tired of the sham of pretending there was a Santa. I would have thought my 11 year old would have found out by now but he hadn’t so this year I ruined their lives by telling them there is no Santa. Here is how the conversation went…….
Me: Family Meeting
Son: I didn’t do it she did
Daughter: You did it, you do everything
Me: I didn’t call Y’all down here for this shat. I want to talk to you all about something serious
Daughter: You are having another baby?
Me: I don’t like you
Me: Moving on….*I go to grab their hands and look deeply into their eyes* Kids…..There is no Santa
Daughter: Stop lying….
Me: I’m not lying. There is no Santa. I am the Santa I have been buying presents and wrapping them up
Son: But how? We had presents under the tree last year in Tennessee and you didn’t bring them with you. I helped you pack the trunk when we left to go out of town
Me: I had them in the suitcase and hid them very well
Daughter: *still sitting there in shock*
Me: *to my son* I am surprised you didn’t know by now I would have thought you would have come to me before now and asked. What do you all talk about in school?
Son: Not Santa. We talk about the latest Jordans, jewelry, my acting skills but not about Santa
Daughter: So all this time there was no Santa…..you have ruined my life, my Christmas, my everything
Me: *to my son* you need to talk about your sisters acting skills because she brings the drama
Me: Look, I’m sorry but I am Santa so technically there is a Santa I just play him and when dad was alive he played Santa so I didn’t really lie I just stretched the truth
Daughter: Well you can’t cook…I didn’t really lie I just stretched the truth because you can cook and I just needed to reply back to you.
Me: I will let you have that one but lil girl…..get over it. Okay…K
