We aren’t sure if this is his first chat with Santa or not. He’s certainly talking about the guy a lot this year (“How did Santa get his magic?”).

The other day we had a conversation about it:

Z: “I really love Santa.”
J: “Really? More than your mommy and daddy?”
Z: “Yeah”
J: “Why is that?”
Z: “He brings me presents.”
J: “Oh. Has he ever cooked you a nice dinner? Taken you swimming?”
Z: “No”
J: “And who took you to Santa’s village, Santa?”
Z: “No”
J: “And yet you love him more than your mommy and daddy?”
Z: “I think so”
