Nathaniel hasn't believed in awhile but told me the other day that some children in his 5th grade class do still believe.

How old is your child, do they still believe?

Liam wants to believe, he told me last month he wasn't real then last night he said he is and his rational. Well remember the year I want a power ranger megazoid "x" well I got the "y" instead and people do make mistakes so its ok for Santa but I KNOW you knew the right mom you were with me when I asked...well at least he feels more highly if my knowledge memory ext skills then santa :)

My 3 year old obviously still believes and I think as the holidays are getting closer he just feels a pull to still beleive and I am fine with that. My neice still believes at 11 and yes she is naive but in the same she is wise beyond what she knows. She lived in a shelter for 2 xmases my sister was blessed to still be able to give her kids a xmas despite not being able to give them a

All three of my kids still believe but I think it's just a matter of time for Fletcher (6) who has heard things at school. He's also very analytical, so he gives a lot of thought to the logistics (fitting down the chimney, how is Santa in every mall) and asks a lot of questions.

Lucy (6) is very much like Fletcher. She questions a lot but hen comes up with something that seems plausible. Like recently she decided that Santa must be invisible b/c nobody see him when he delivers gifts, lol. Sounds pretty right to me :) The little one is almost 3 and still believes - but is also not very interested in Santa at this point.

The mall thing tipped off Nathaniel. He told my mil that Santa lived at Walmart.
