1 down 2 to go

blake tricked me. he asked me all happy and funny like, if i was the one who put the candy in the eggs at easter time. since he was so fucking smiley face about it, i said yes. i mean, why lie anymore than i need to, right?? well that was a mistake! he was hysterically crying and saying overly dramatic statements like, "how come everything i believe in ISN'T REAL??!" and "i am so stupid for believing in something that was never real!!!" and he was mad that he believed in the easter bunny, when the easter bunny was "scratching my back right now!" which meant, it was me. which made me laugh. which made him mad. all of this has gotten me thinking WHY i told him there was a stupid bunny in the first place? i mean, couldn't i have just said all along that i put candy in your eggs and hide them around the house? i mean, what harm is there in that? one less "lie" to deal with later, right? maybe i told him that because it was FUN FOR ME. not to lie, but to be the easter bunny. *sighs* well let me tell you this much- his reaction has left me no choice but to tell him forever that the freaking tooth fairy and santa are as real as i am! i don't care if that stupid fairy isn't big enough to hold your tooth and/or carry money around. the bitch is magic, and you just don't question magic things! and santa? i'll tell him that fucker's real until i die.

Eeek! What a loaded question. It's questions like these that worry me about my parenting abilities. Poor guy, his world must be falling apart around him!

*imagines Blake, all grown up, still waiting for Santa to come (aka you to break into his house to leave gifts)*

You're so cute. The lepricauns, tooth fairies, and easter bunnies have to be exposed at some point. He'll be alright.

stephanie- seriously. i actually thought last night that maybe i shouldn't have ever told him there was an EASTER BUNNY per se, but told him that it was something i did (the eggs and candy thing) for fun, you know?!?! it's hard, because how do you explain to your kid that you "lied" to them?!?? and what is a good reason? cause it was fun? LOL.. this santa thing i'm denying til death!

Man o' man Jenn! Yeah, stick with the Santa story. Let some one else break it to him. To this day, as many times as Madison has asked me, I've never admitted to anything just to avoid a situation like this.

Just tell him "There's no harm in believing. Now drop it."

awww jenn its ok. that made me laugh though

Matt said...

Yeah, the Easter Bunny just has so much less credibility than Santa to start with. Believing in a giant bunny is just kinda tough to pull off at some point I think.

Toots said...

OMG! LOL @ his reaction! sorry..but it's kinda funny! but awww..I wonder if he defended the easter bunny to his friends..LOL and that's why he was mad at himself for believing..poor kiddo:(

jennster said...

melissa- i will never admit there's no santa. and at the rate he's going, i'll tell him the tooth fairies real until i die too! it's so sad- he was So upset. and i really questioned WHY i even told him that stupid hopping bunny was real in the first place? cause in all honesty, i think it's cause it was FUN for me to hide eggs and stuff. lol

jennster said...

matt- you are so right on. but from now on, all fake things are real. that fucking tiny ass tooth fairy carries your tooth away and brings you money. yep. don't ask how- she's just magic!

jennster said...

toots- come comfort me

Toots said...

I'll be there in ten minutes.

I think it's hillarious how he tricked you. You've got one bright boy there. But don't worry... mythicals figures like the easter bunny and even santa are what make holidays .... holiday-ish.

jennster said...

lol penguin. seriously though- he was all joking when he asked, so i thought, "oh, he won't care at all." omg was i wrong.
