Now that the kids are back at school, Autumn is here and the shops are filling up fast with gift ideas it has got me thinking about the C word. I love this time of year, I always go a little over the top with presents and decorations, which is almost traditional for our family, but I'm wondering how long the magic will last. The Mini Mes are getting older by the minute and becoming quite inquisitive little things questioning pretty much everything. With this brings doubts about the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny and of course Santa.
'Is Santa real?'
This has popped up a few times. I keep wondering when is best to be honest and accept that my babies are growing up. That on Christmas Eve I don't need to leave a special key out for the fat man in red and bite into a carrot like a reindeer (the sherry drinking I'm quite fond of!). When is the right time to tell the truth?
I also worry that telling Minxy, will ruin the magic for little Jamster who is still a firm believer!
How did you deal with this or how will you when the time comes?
