Last year's visit with Santa didn't go so well (and the memory is, of course, embedded in my mind and in photos). So I'm conflicted about whether or not to take my to see Santa this year.
My son is two-years-old now, so I can almost guarantee we will have a repeat of last year or worse.
Last year took a lot of coaxing and once he was on Santa's lap lots of tears and reaching out for Mommy as he sat there I'm sure wondering what the hell I was doing to him putting him on this stranger's lap and then standing next to the photographer holding up Elmo hoping to get him to smile.
But I digress, because I need some guidance from parents out there.
So local parents, what is your take on this? How have you handled Santa visits?
I feel guilty not taking him, but even more guilty subjecting him to something he's not going to like - which I fear will leave a lasting impression ...
