Last year the little one had found out that Santa is not real. Somehow she has forgotten that realization this year.
Today she came to me and said "Daddy, I know Santa puts our gifts under periamma's tree but will he still come into our house through the chimney and check our Christmas lights? What if he comes and is not happy because we don't put milk and cookies for him?"
Me : !!! I don't know. Maybe he will come to our house
LO : He comes to every house anyways right? even if we are good or bad girls?
Me : go to sleep. Santa will bring you gifts. Just don't worry about it.
On the other hand, Jr. is growing up a little too soon, and when this is happening with her mom as a role model.. that means trouble for Daddy.
Jr.: Daddy can you do this for me?
Me : Iru, idho varen (wait, I will come now)
Jr.: I know what that means. You will take an H O U R to come. I am going to go ask Amma!
Me : NO that is not true. I am almost done here. Just give me a minute.
Jr.: You are on your laptop! Every time you are on your laptop and say "a minute" it means a hundred minutes. You won't come. I know you..
LO : Yeah Appa. you take a hundred million thousand minutes!
Me : (shut down laptop) Okay, tell me what you want?
Jr.: See, you did that just to prove me wrong. If I didn't say what I did, you would have kept working.
Me : Ennadi aniyaayam (this is not fair). I don't come to help, it is a problem. If I come to help, I am doing it to prove a point?
Have a lot of work ahead to change the little girls perception!
