Miss Frugal’s 11 now and most definitely doesn’t believe in Santa anymore. She didn’t last year or even, I suspect the year before that either but she at least pretended for my sake. It’s different this year though because she knows that I know that she knows that the big man isn’t real so she doesn’t feel the need to humour me as she’s done for the last few years.
She’s still pretending to believe in front of Master Frugal though because we’re not actually sure if he’s still a believer – I’m almost positive that he is but that could just be wishful thinking on my part.
Now that she’s a non believer, she’s decided not to write a letter to Santa this year. Instead, when I asked her to give me an idea of what she would like and by the time I came home from work the next day there was a list stuck to the fridge door asking for everything but the kitchen sink!
She’s not asking for that much actually and nothing major thank goodness but her list does make me smile as it’s very specific – even to the point of her asking for felt tips – of good quality! Cheeky madam….
She’s also taken to texting me photos of things she’s spotted that she would like – again, just to help me you understand! 😉
I do miss the days when she used to write lovely letters to Santa asking for dolls and asking after the reindeers and Mrs Claus!
Do your children still believe?
