Yesterday as I was trying to herd three children out of the door without forgetting my keys, book bags, drinks cups and football kit, Z piped up with,
‘Are you sure you didn’t leave the presents‘
I paused, not wanting to misunderstand, was he talking about Christmas or something we got in the post? ‘What do you mean?’ I asked innocently.
‘Well you like peanut butter and you don’t eat the crusts‘
For that to make sense, you need to know that on Christmas Eve we left Santa a peanut butter sandwich and a mince pie. Santa was a bit full from his Christmas Eve curry and could only manage to eat the middle of the sandwiches…hence the crust comment.
I think I have been almost caught out…and Z is only 5.

My eldest daughter is 8 and far too clever for her own good, I just hope we keep the magic for another few years!!
I was busted when GG turned 6 – she crept out of bed to see if the big man had been, at precisely the moment when I was loading the stockings… Cue lots of make believe from me!
Little rascal!! You’ll need to change tactics next Christmas!
A what a scamp! He must have been thinking about that for ages!
Plenty more opportunities to be found out waiting ahead for you!

Gotta love the delayed questioning 🙂 It’s a bit sad when they ‘get’ it… but then again, bit of a relief too!!
