My kids piss me off.
None of them want to go see Santa. The oldest one I can understand. He's 11. He knows. But the other two? What is their problem??
And isn't it funny how we teach our kids not to talk to strangers and yet once a year we dress them up and force them onto the lap of a fat, bearded dude just because he's dressed in a red suit and laughs out a "ho ho ho." Any other time of year we would be calling the police if that guy came within 20 feet of our precious babies. "Pervert!" we would scream as we doused him in pepper spray and kicked him in the huevos.
But no. It's Christmas and he's passing out candy canes. Well by all means, here you go! Please, hold my child total stranger! Put her on your lap! Of course she wants a candy cane! Why would I have a problem with a strange man in a red velvet suit passing out candy to my children??
Come on kid, climb up on Santa's lap!! What do you mean you don't to?? Get up there, you ungrateful little brat and stop crying so I can take your picture. It's Santa, what the hell is wrong with you?? Say cheeeeeese!!
I just don't get why they don't want to do it....
