So Christmas is just around the corner, and as you know Santa is a big deal in my house. But the age difference in my five kiddies is making the whole “Believe in Santa” thing tricky. I’m tackling the issue in my video, so if your little ones are in earshot, you might want to wait to watch this one!
When your older kids realize what’s up, how do you prevent the disclosure from moving down the chain to the younger kiddos during the holiday season?! Do you just accept this as inevitable or do you try to stage a cover-to preserve the magic of your kids’ Christmas? My oldest son Hedley is 8 years old and is mostly still a Santa believer, but some of the older cousins in our family aren’t.
In this video I talk about a special Swedish Christmas tradition in our family and how we try to preserve the magic of Santa. What happens in your family? How do you handle Santa when you have kids of different ages?
