Sorry Santa, not this year..

Posted on: November 24, 2012

Last year, Little M was two and a half months when we went to take pictures with Santa Claus.

This year, Little M was fourteen and a half months when we made an attempt to take pictures with Santa Claus.

Note that I said “attempt” and that by “attempt” I really mean “failed attempt.”

We went to the mall and saw the Santa set up.  Being so early in the season, there was no line at all.  We decided to take her in since we could take our time with it.

Upon entering the set up, I could already see the look on M’s face change.

So we went up to Santa and he tried to play with her.

Her face was starting to relax a bit so I immediately plopped her on his lap.

Big mistake!

She cried!  Oh, she cried..

She cried so hard.  The only other time I she cried this hard was during her last round of vaccinations.

I felt so bad!

Santa was totally understanding and told us this happens all the time with toddlers of that age.  He also said that some mothers have their kids just visit several times before they sit them down to take a picture.

I was so ready to set up a visiting schedule until hubby drops some words of wisdom.

“Why are we going to put her through this several times to get used to it just for one picture?!”

He’s right.  I hate when he’s right.

So this year, we are gonna skip her picture with Santa and hope that next year she will be better.

I just hope she’s ready for the Easter bunny next spring!!!
