…and emphatically not going to see Santa. Because “I’m shy.”

Shy like I used to be? Walking up to strangers in the grocery store, announcing, “My name’s Alida, I’m 3, and I’m too shy to talk to you.”

Hey, Santa is scary! Love your snowman by the way.

Well at least she puts the blame on herself. My daughter would not go because Santa was the scariest most evil thing in the world. She would list the reasons why she disliked him to anyone who would listen.

At least her excuse is being “shy”, my girl out right says she is “scared!” She told me “I no sit in Santa’s lap, I sit on your lap, you my mommy, I scared of that Santa” Then she informed us that Santa is not allowed to come into our house – so we will be putting the presents outside and leaving her a note on the door telling her that Santa understood she was scared and he didn’t want to scare her. Hopefully next year she will let Santa come in the house!!

Aww, how thoughtful of Santa!

Oh my god, that is the funniest thing I’ve heard in a while. How will the logistics work? Are the presents going to sit outside all night, or is Dad going to get up a little early, place the presents on the doorstep, and then wake her up and ask her to come look at the door?

We are always up well before her, so we will stick them outside before she gets up in the morning.

Ah, you’re better parents than us. This is how our bedside conversation goes at 7 AM:
Me: “You get the baby!”
Husband: “Why? You’re up!”
Me: ” I went in at 12 AM when her diaper was wet. I get to sleep in.”
Husband: “You’d have to get up in 20 minutes regardless!”
Me: “Shhhh! I’m sleeping!” *pulls blankets up to forehead*
This happens on average every other morning. The rest of the time, my husband has to leave for work early, which I never remember about, so I find out by rolling around and seeing the empty spot on his side, and I have a few “Why? Why did I have to birth a morning person?” thoughts before dragging myself out of bed.

She’s so cute! At least she knows her limits! That’s impressive.

That’s the most adorable dress!
I’m struggling to find a dressy Christmas dress for my daughter, since it’ll be too cold up here for sleeveless frocks, but everything long sleeved I’ve run across is kinda meh.

Oh yeah, I can totally see how bashful she is. What kind of cruel parent would take such a shy child to see Santa?
She looks so pretty in that dress–it’s so hard to believe how grown up she is!

Next year she will LOVE him!!! Just wait.

You have to admit that Annie is rather smart to like Santa from a distance…I mean really–we tell them not to talk to or take candy from strangers…except at Halloween, Christmas, Easter. LOL
Stay away away from the fat, bearded, candy-bearing stranger Annie!
