What I Learned in Taking my Toddler to See Santa


1. Even if said Toddler has been roaming the house whispering "Ho,Ho" in that teeny deep voice of his, he will inevitably freeze when confronted with the big man.

2. I know for a fact the Santa we saw growing up was the real one and, ahem, much less creepy than this dude. The more I looked at this guy the more I questioned our visit to Santa.

Funnily enough, it's about the same reaction we got last year.

As we round out the last days before Christmas, I'm holding my family close and counting the many blessings this year has seen. I've surprised myself by enjoying a bit of time disconnected, which I'll continue to attempt in the days to come.

That being said, don't go running. I do have some sweet last minute Christmas recipes and crafts to share.

  1. It's a good photo, at least he's not crying. I have quite a few with a traumatized child, lol. Merry Christmas.

    1. Thank you! I tried so hard to get him to smile but it just wasn't happening this year. Oh well!

      Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. It's a pretty good photo. My youngest son is scowling in his, and my older son isn't even in a picture because he was crying and hiding behind my husband, it never goes how we would think.

    1. These kids must think we're crazy taking them to sit on some strangers lap. Haha. You are correct, it never goes as expected!

  4. Our Santa was creepy, too! He was cranky and grumpy and didn't smile even though Ethan did in his picture! Haha.

  6. Aw, it turned out pretty good! I think my son would be freaked out by Santa (all the mall ones I've seen are kinda creepy). Following along now from the That Friday blog hop :)
