We love Santa in this house.
I have such fond memories of Christmas time growing up and that was all down to good old Santa. I want Freddie to have the same magical experience as I did. This year he is getting a stocking (all the presents inside will be from Santa) and all the presents under the tree are from family etc. I think it’s important for children to appreciate the effort and kindness people have gone to to buy presents for them and I ain’t letting Santa take all the credit.
As much as I love Christmas and love the magic Santa brings, I hate the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ culture surrounding Christmas, we will do our best to create a magical and lovely experience for Freddie but we will be doing that without the ‘fear’ of Santa not bringing him any presents if he is ‘bad’. I think the whole idea of a random fat bloke bringing you presents if you’re ‘good’ is a little creepy so we will be leaving that bit out.
After all, what even defines a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ child? Usually a bad child is one who doesn’t conform to it’s parent’s wishes. I never want Freddie to feel like he must conform to my wishes and desires. I want to be respected, of course, but in order to be respected I will respect him first and show him how it’s done.
Here are some photos of our decorations, as promised!
(We ended up going for a green tree as there were no white ones left!)
See you soon x
