Dear Santa

Neither of my girls has ever had her picture taken while sitting on Santa’s lap. They both have serious stranger anxiety and it never seemed like a good idea to put them or Santa through the trauma just to get a picture.

Anytime we see Santa, be it at the mall or even Walmart, I ask them if they want to sit on his lap.

They both look at me like I’m insane.

I love that other people make this a tradition. I love that other kids are either cool with Santa and his lap or throw major fits when a parent plants them on the poor man’s lap but my kids and I? We’ll pass.
