Eight Year Olds and Easter Bunnies

Written by dad - 4 Comments

Well, it’s Easter morning, and I’m pleased to report that our eight year old is still a full-on believer when it comes to the Easter Bunny (as well as Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy). So sweet and so innocent. My wife and I had been thinking that this past Christmas might be the last one before he figures out the truth about Santa Claus, but his faith in all things Holiday is still going strong. I can’t personally recall how old I was before I started figuring out stuff like this, but we’re hoping that it’ll go on awhile longer — after all, once he figures it out, he’ll most likely end up spilling the beans to his younger brothers. Who knows… As long as we don’t end up taking him to a Bunny-whipping church, we may be able to keep the magic alive for quite some time…

  3. How would/did you answer the inevitable question about Santa’s existence? Let us know. It’s fast approaching for us and here’s how we plan to handle it… tell our oldest son the truth. We MUST tell him the truth or he’ll relentlessly pursue the truth at the expense of his little brothers’ innocence. Here’s the tricky part. How can we prevent him from spilling the beans? Easy. Include him in the charade. Let him stay up late on Christmas Eve, put out the Santa presents, fill up stockings, and most importantly eat the Santa cookies. He’ll be having so much fun and so happy to be pulling one over on his little brothers that he won’t have time to ruin it for them.
