Childhood

The Downside of Innocence

12.10.07 | Comment?

My 8-year-old daughter still firmly believes in Santa Klaus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny. While this is sweet, it does put me in some awkward positions. To wit:

Her: “Daddy, can I have a pony* for Christmas?”

Me: “I’m sorry, honey, we can’t afford it.”

Her: “That’s okay – I’ll just ask Santa!”

*Or a similar high-priced gift.
