I have been thinking about an earlier Post.."The Lies"...I don't want to be misunderstood...I am probably one of the most optimistic people in the WOOORrrrlldddd.
It may have sounded like I am pessimistic but I am just the opposite.
But I believe we buy into what is fed to us. (spoon fed,,,if we read it, see it on the news or hear it)
I told my daughter there was no Santa Clause when she was old enough to understand.(2 years old)
Mya: Mommy is there a Santa Clause?
Some people don't agree with me telling her that, they say I stole her joy away, they say I should have let her be a kid. I say...we tell our children not to lie!!!!
And then we lie...really...I don't agree with that. She is fine today,,she hasn't started drinking or doing drugs b/c Santa doesn't exist. She doesn't draw his name on her walls in blood and she hasn't created any pressure cooker bombs.
She is still finding her way, but I find peace and relief in knowing that I didn't start our relationship off with a lie.
Just a Thought....
