    Default so my DD finally no longer believes in Santa




    she was really into fairies etc as a little kid, and wrote a bunch of letters to the tooth fairy.

    I finally wrote a letter back (as the tooth fairy) once ... which she loved, and kept as a treasure.


    The other day she was cleaning out her drawer, and found another note I had written for her which had some of the same words ... and she came out and said "did you write this? are you the tooth fairy?"

    so I explained that the tooth fairy wasnt real ... so then she ask about Easter Bunny and Santa

    all she could ask after that was - "so will I still get extra presents from Santa?"


    cheeky thing

    Booooooo 👎🏻

    When I was about 7, my older sister told me that she'd found Mum's book where she writes what everyone is getting for Christmas & I was getting a little birds nest full of little birds that tweeted when you touched them. Which would have been fine if it hadn't been my present from Santa
    But my mum's Christmas motto was always 'if you don't believe, you don't receive', so I played along until I was, I don't know, 20?
    Sorry your DD has lost the magic

    Here's the positive: your daughter has developed her critical thinking skills to the point where she was able to figure it out. Go her!
    Also, she trusts you enough to come and ask/discuss it with you. Go you!

    We will still do santa after DSD and DSS stop believing- with a baby on the way we kinds have to.

    DSD knows but hasn't really said anything, but it's clear to see.

    We have always said that we pay for the toys and Santa delivers them... so really all that changes is that they learn actually we also deliver them. We never did the 'magic' side.

    yeah she is fine.

    I told her that she has to believe in Santa if she wants a present from him ... so she quickly decided that Santa magic was still good

    I also told her that I still get a present from Santa (from gandma) and she thought that was great too.

    Its a bit sad that the magic is lost ... but she is 9. It was always going to happen.

    we will still have a very fun, happy and loving christmas (and easter ... and the tooth fairy will still come )

    My eldest stopped believing in Santa at about 9 and second eldest just last year (7) .... I suspect eldest child had something to do with it. It's going to be tricky to keep the younger two believing!

    DS who is 8 believes. Last night while in the kitchen, he was in the loungeroom and a toy ad came on tv. He asked santa if santa can bring it for christmas.

    I am not sure how DS will go when he works it all out.
