We predicted well in advance of our visit to Santa that Nora would be less than thrilled about the whole thing. Still, we decided that for the sake of tradition, we would trek to the mall to give it a whirl.
Thirty minutes later, it was our turn, and... it was over in the blink of an eye.
Thankfully, Santa said that Nora was still on his nice list, so at least she won't get coal in her stocking. And we have our fingers crossed that things will go a little more smoothly next year. Stranger danger, be gone!
(Check out our girl meeting Santa for the first time last year. It was decidedly less dramatic.)
Did you like going to see Santa as a kid? I'll admit that I completely understand the aversion to him--he is a little scary, if you think about it from a kid's point of view. If you have children, have you taken them to see Santa Claus? How have they reacted?
