Madly in Love
*Warning: If you have small children looking over your shoulder, find an activity for them before proceeding to read this next bit lest ye have many a question to answer later.
For a few years now, Diva has asked us if Santa is real. We tell her every time that St. Nicholas was a real person and have, I feel, skirted around the issue quite successfully. Neither confirm nor deny...we would make good politicians. ;)
Not to say that the child has not tried to stump us. Her Christmas list to Santa had included requests like a bell from the reindeer collar or snowflakes from the North Pole and always a letter from Santa.
Obviously, this is-he-or-isn't-he topic was weighing heavily on her mind and out of the blue she blurted, "Does Santa sleep with you?"
I was not facing her at that moment and had to think quickly on how to react to her innocent question. I just turned to her and smiled. She half-smiled back then moaned, "Awwwww" while sticking her bottom lip out in a pouty way.
That was when I looked my then 10 year old girl square in the eye and said, "And one day, Santa will sleep with you."
She grinned a fabulous braces-filled grin and asked, "So it was you who wrote all of the letters?" I just smiled.
There was a moment of silence then she concluded, "I think I will still believe in Santa 'cause it's so much fun."
That's perfectly fine with me my little Diva, but spare a thought for your poor mother and let's not ask for nearly impossible items on the Christmas list anymore, okay?
