I know I have established my Santa issues, so I thought I would share that I am working through them.
One *awesome* solution for me is to take “his” power away a little. I was inspired by a friend’s Facebook status when she stated that she was going to make the underwear and socks be from Santa this year (thanks, Angie!). It occurred to me that I am part of my Santa problem.
So I’m not going the socks and underwear route, and my five year old will get what’s on her list to Santa from Santa (she didn’t ask for much), BUT… The awesome play kitchen for the girls that I scored on sale on Amazon? That’s from Mommy & Daddy.
Take that, Santa.
