Warning: Santa spoiler alert! Not for all young eyes!!
Not only is it the holiday season, which is our busiest time of year. But we recently got news that we are going to be in the January edition of Oprah magazine. So we’re trying not to get too low on any of our inventory. But after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we were really low on lotion sticks and lip balms. So we made… a… LOT!
While we were working we sat around talking and listening to Christmas songs.
During this labeling marathon, the song “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” came on.
I don’t want to get into a debate with anyone, but at our house, Santa Claus isn’t real. He’s a Christmas figure. We allow the children to interact with “Santa” if we come across him, but the children know that any Santa Claus they see is just a man playing dress up.
A few minutes after the song, Emery asked me a question.
Emery: “Mom, what does the Bible call that? You know, it’s a bad thing?”
(Don’t ask me how I knew what he was talking about)
Emery: “Yeah, that’s it.”
Me: “Emery, is Santa Claus real?”
Me: “Then who was Mommy kissing?”
Emery: “Some guy?”
Me: “No… who would have been dressed like Santa Claus that Mommy would have been kissing?”
Me: “Daddy perhaps?”
At which point he started giggling uncontrollably at the realization of what the song was actually about.
I love it when we have fun together as a family when we’re working. It’s just the way I want Goat Milk Stuff to always be!
