Is the Jig Up?
I’m pretty sure you all know that C is 10 years old (he’s going to be 11 next month!) and in 5th grade. Which also means I had him when I was 16.
So I keep wondering……………..is the jig up with Santa?
C with Santa in 2007!
He hasn’t mentioned it. And when he made his Christmas list he listed gifts for me and Jay and then gifts for Santa.
But I wonder:
- Is he scared if he tells us he knows there’s no Santa that he won’t get as many gifts? (wouldn’t surprise me)
- He’s in 5th grade – the kids have had to talk about it by now, right?
- He’s a 10 year old BOY. Boys are more inclined to stop believing before girls, no?
- Does he think he’ll get in trouble if he tells us he doesn’t believe?
I can’t remember what year I realized there was no real Santa. I don’t think I ever even talked about it with my parents either – I mean, they actually JUST stopped giving us presents from Santa!
I absolutely believe in the spirit of Santa and want to share that with C, but I also don’t want to ruin it for him if he still believes in the man, Santa Claus.
I don’t want to ignore the subject, but I’m torn. I’m pretty sure the jig is up, but I don’t know for sure and it’s killing me!
Do you remember when you stopped believing? Did you talk to your parents about it??
