ds has been telling me that Fc doesnt exist. he is far too analytical about things and has a perfectly logical theory -mum buys it all.
but DD, 4. has now pickedup on it and i dont want her to. think i may give in after this year and if he still wont allow the fantasy to continue then i will sit him downa nd tell him that he is right, but that we want Dd to enjoy the fantasy a bit longer nad let him have it as his own secret mission (which he will love) to keep Dd in teh dark.
ds1 (now 9) picked up on this idea about two or three years ago and tried to convince ds2 (now 7)that fc wasnt real. i combatted this by starting to do them all santa sacks filled with goodies. most of the stuff doesnt cost more than a couple of pounds and they are all individually wrapped but not labelled. as far as they are concerned santa brings them on xmas eve as xmas morning is the only time they see them all year. also we track santa on xmas eve on the norad website. it seems to work , and ds1 hasnt tried to convince ds2 or the dd's that he is not real since.
my ds(year 6) has been told that for years by his mates, but still believes. This year I would rather he didn't believe TBH, as he is expecting FC to deliver some top notch stuff, but I'm not gonna tell him.
