He Knows When You've Been Bad or Good

The other night Dailaesse was being all kinds of stubborn about getting washed up and putting her jammies on. I tried everything. Bribing, begging, pleading. Then I remembered that there's only a month left until Christmas. So I pulled out the big guns. "You know, Santa is watching you right now. He sees you all the time. He won't come leave you any presents if you don't behave." Dailaesse looks around the living room and responds appropriately, "He can't see me. He's not here in my house. He won't be here for weeks." I explain that Santa is magic and he can see her all the time. "No he can't. He's at his home at the North Pole. That's a long far ways away." I reiterate that Santa is magic and he can see us where ever we are from where ever he is. "That's just ridiculous. He can't see me. Besides, I plan to be good at Christmas when he brings my presents. He'll see me then and know I'm a good girl." Any bets on how long Dailaesse believes in Santa?

Thanks for offering to include my in the exchange, but I am deadlined to my ears right now! I am going to have to get in on one of these - everyone seems to be happy with how they work out ... it's definitely tempting though.

where in ther world do find the energy to do all that you do? now you're doing SP7, too ?!? hokey smokes, if only i could bottle some of that =)

my SP won't even respond to let me know if she received my gifts (grumble). oh well, no controlling what people will do.

so this drawing, whats the dealio? something you do every so often? part of another "pal" type program?

watch out for that little gal of yours, she may give you a run for your money when she hits 13 =)

With the way she thinks that kid should go into philosophy!

Girl, I don't know how you can live under the same roof with the "princess" and keep a straight face!!! I have a hard enough time with this gd. I shudder to think of the mischief they could get up to if they were close enough for a play date. I'd have to put them in a room with a one way mirror cuz I KNOW I'd never be able to keep a straight face. I'd have to invest in Depends to even sit on the other side of the mirror and watch. I sure wouldn't want to explain to either of them why MY britches were wet!

Our kids become more logical earlier and earlier. My 8 year old is extremely logical and smart but she won't give up Santa, eventhough she has been told he is fictional, She is hanging onto that one....I am sure she has some logical reason to justify it though

This is one of those conversations you can bring up when she is older & you reminise about just how cute she was!

Happy holidays memories!

Yikes, thankfully my daughter is just learning to say "santa" and I have lots of years before I have to deal with that.

Looking forward to working with you on SP7!
