I love Christmas. Not just because of the holiday season feeling and the happiness(for the most part) that people have. But also because I love the imagination part of Christmas. I love telling my charges about Santa and seeing the pure excitement about him. I also love telling them that Santa will not bring toys if they are bad. Well, maybe, I only tell that to the older boy.
But really, Parents and Nannies, you should be using that "Santa is watching" reason for the entire year. I wonder how much more well behaved kids would be if Santa was watching them all year???
I'm going to try it this year.
Also, a tip for you Nannies and Stay-at-home-Parents:
The Elf on the Shelf goes to the North Pole to report to Santa at nap time. You'll thank me for this tip!
