Every child has to have a picture like this in their scrapbook, right? Poor Mason was terrified even when Maya sat on Santa's lap, who was of course the first in line. What did she ask him for? Bath salts. I think that is the easiest request given to Santa I have ever heard! No complaints will be heard from her mom. Anyways, when Mason saw that Maya was on Santa's lap, he shot me a look that said, "don't even try it." He wriggled out of my arms and took off running the other way. Being the queen of pictures, I wasn't going to allow this photo opp to pass. I told Santa to hold tight till I get a picture.
As Mason got released from Santa's arms, he was given a candy cane. Mason threw it on the ground and ran crying the other way. He wanted nothing to do with the whole thing. As I look back it reminds me a little of the incident in Urgent Care with Maya. Again, I was part of the torture treatment. Not too much harm done, right? Just a little distrust with mom, maybe a little post traumatic syndrome a few years down the road, is it worth the picture? I think so.
Reece informed me after sitting on his lap that it wasn't the real Santa. He noticed his boots were a piece of vinyl over his shoes, he is just too observant!
What are your favorite Santa moments???
