Is it wrong that I don't want to take the twins to see Santa yet? I see pictures of babies much younger than my boys sitting on Santa's lap and with the exception of this great photo from Sarah, there is usually some unhappiness going on. I'm almost positive Santa would scare the crap out of the Dynamo and Sweet Potato would likely be perplexed and pull his beard. (And it's not like I get many pictures of Sweet Potato smiling anyway since his interest immediately goes to the camera in his face.)
Babies screaming on Santa's lap for some reason are not that appealing to me. I know people find it funny. Ellen DeGeneres highlights Bad Santa Photos on her show so they must be funny, right? Because I think she's hilarious.
Perhaps I am an unconventional mother who's desire not to scare her babies is stronger than her desire to get a picture of them visiting Santa Claus. Am I going to regret it if I don't take them? Will they wonder when they're older why they didn't see Santa when they were 1? I mean I'm considering waiting until they are 4 years old! Or maybe 3.
What age did you first take your little ones to sit on Santa's lap and how did it go?
