Struggles with Believing

By | December 21, 2006

Yes, Drew is at the age where his friends are letting it be known that they don’t believe in Santa. Drew is really struggling to believe in him. He was questioning everything today about Santa. Even though we told him last year that most of the Santa we see are just his helper, he still days well why does the REAL Santa come to our mall? I did the best I could to explain, but he continued to say things like “Well, I just don’t know why we don’t get to see Rudolph” or “How does he get all over the hour in 12 hours?” I just continued to say it’s all magical and it’s really hard to understand. I’m afraid next year he won’t go for any of this and it won’t be magical anymore. Nevertheless, click below to see a couple pictures from today’s visit.

    It is hard when they start to stop believing in the magic. In our house he sort of convert Santa to a feeling as they are older. We can be Santa’s helper and do nice things for others and that keeps the magic of Santa alive in us as adults. My youngest is the last to believve in Santa, but the older boys continue to believe in the magic or Santa won’t bring them anything but coal. They have yet to get coal!!
