How dare they tell the truth which makes mom look bad? They should be taught to lie on behalf of their mom to make her look good. “Mom wanted to make you cookies, but we told her not to because we thought you were on a diet. Sorry Santa.”

Santa was on a Diet. Santa is the kid’s mom, and she’s on a diet. Seriously, and the reindeer are the twelve mice living under the floor boards.

I think it’s charming! I love that they’re worried he’d eat the (probably old, crusty) gingerbread house and so came up with a backup plan.

Why a fail? I have a friend who named her kid Gryphon. Seems perfectly valid to me.
Of course, my real name is Lythande. Strange names are cool to me.

Nice try with the crudités; next time, though, how about some California rolls, a little hummus with pita bread and a lightly oaked Chardonnay?

Naughty children are only naughty because their parents force them to be that way. I only acted like a screaming little shit because Daddy wouldn’t let me shave “DOODY” onto his scalp! Seriously, place the blame where it truly belongs!

oh, seriously…what are parents for when you are a kid trying to cover your ass BUT to throw them under the bus? Kids? shit, aren’t they always trying to finagle their way out of dealing with consequences? Like…”if we’re just are upfront about the whole cookies vs carrot thing, we can still probably get the easy bake oven, if not the pony.”
Smart kids go for broke anyway. Love the note. Screw it, I still believe in Christmas. for Adults who haven’t let the post modern age crush their inner fun engine there is a lot of happiness to be had. Forget the crass consumerism. just break out the sleigh. If there is no snow, break out the rum.
