    Default Santa not bringing what he asked for

    As children my sisters and I always asked Santa for a surprise, we never wrote a list, although of course there was stuff we wanted and pointed out so Santa knew what stuff we wanted. We were never disappointed, think it was very clever on my parents part lol

    we have the "write a list and Santa will bring you some of the things off it", so DS knows he won't get everything.

    However, last year....the only thing he wanted from Santa was magical powers...which, by his reasoning, would be free and therefore not too much to ask for.

    So, we wrote out a very special letter from Santa to DS, wrapped it in a special ribbon with glitter and sparkles and left it under the tree. Santa explained that he culd not grant him extra powers as it would dilute his own and he needed them. Santa also told DS how magical he already was and how wth his very clever mind and hard work, he could achieve anything and everything DS loved his letter and treasures it and sometimes refers to it when he is stuck "santa believed in me so i'll just keep trying"...bless him.

    You'll find a way to make it special.

    I just explain it like that.
    I also do this, also tell dd she can ask for 3 things, and Santa will bring one, bc if you greedy you wont get any, but Santa sometimes goes nuts buys all 3 although sometimes Santa knows you'll love something even if its not on your list
    DD has once or twice received something totally different to the list but just goes on about how did Santa know I'd love this!
    Really on the day they love anything I think!

    This is why in our house Santa leaves one present and we give the rest.

    Santa fills stockings in our house. We give presents, he gives stocking fillers.

    And when the kids ask why 'so and so' got 'this and that' from Santa I say "well I'd say their parents contributed and made a deal with him but that goes way beyond his resources" lol..They've been fine with that answer.
