Torturing Our Kids With Santa Since 2007

Have you seen this cuteness that has been circulating the web this week?

All together now, awwww. So cute, a kid who actually likes Santa. Though I am not convinced that that child is actually not animatronic because my own kids are terrified of Santa.

In a way I can't blame them. The situation does seem a little preposterous. I can just hear them thinking:
"You want me to go sit on that big man's lap and tell him what I want for Christmas? He's a stranger mom! With a scary beard!".

But because I get off on seeing my children cry we pump it up every year.

"That's Santa!!! He brings you presents!!! He's nice!!!
"If you sit on his lap I will buy you a cookie!!!"

We're like the best corner men in the world ready with water bottles and encouraging words and upbeatness in the face of utter defeat. Only to every year end up with a picture like this:

Ah, the memories.


  1. I think they slipped the kid a mickey before he met Santa.

  2. I LOVE your picture! We have one like that from last year, this year her cousins explained that he brings cool toys so she decided she likes him.

  3. I can't believe you know what a corner man is.

  4. I think my favorite part of this photo is your face. Haha. We didn't even try this year!
