Our daughter is due to be born any day now. Every time the subject of Santa comes up we fight!! He wants her to believe in Santa, i don't, I'm just not comfortable lying to my child along with other things that go with the Santa "tradition". Yes i grew up believing in Santa, also but im just not comfortable with it. So my question is have any of you moms faced this dilemma and if so how did you fix it? Any advice on a compromise??
I am not asking why it Santa okay or not why it is bad or not. I am simply looking for a way we both can come together and compromise on the where it isn't a dilemma and ruin our daughters holidays.
He has children that aren't with him that had the Santa thing, i have kids that i adopted out later that didn't believe in Santa (my 2 year old was really smart, no one even told him Santa wasn't real or was real, he always said Santa was just a man and not real). So we are coming from 2 totally opposite views on this, to make it harder i want Christmas to be about Christ and God, he doesn't believe in God.
So any suggestions on a compromise? I am willing to bend a little, but he wants to go to the extreme.
