I nearly choke on my Eggo and do a quick scan around the table to see his siblings' reactions. Everyone has their eyes glued on Rugby waiting for more information to back up his outrageous claims.
I decide to venture further and ask him why he would say that.
He spews out all of the regular arguments and ends with a firm belief that it has to be Mom and Dad.
I asked Breckyn how she felt about that (thinking she is 10 and would probably agree with her little brother by now-- hopefully). She said she didn't really care what was going on. As long as she got presents, she wouldn't question any of it.
Then it was Zoey's turn. She agreed with both Breckyn and Rugby but decided not to tempt fate. So she went neutral.
Em was the only one left and his answer was simple. "Rugby is stupid for saying that because he won't get any presents."
So my children have picked ignorance over information. Is it wrong that I'm kind of disappointed? I am bound by the adult code not to go any further with the conversation because they chose not to know. It's killing me!
This morning Zoey asked me to mail a letter for her. It was addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Clause. She told me she was writing not for toys, but to have their signatures. She has requested that Santa, the misses and one elf sign, date and return her letter for proof and peace of mind.
Really? Really? You're 9!!!
You guys are killin' me!
