Wordless Wednesday - Santa The Terrorist!!!!!

Mortgage and Lending with Cherry Creek Mortgage Illinois Residential Mortgage License LMB #0005759 Cherry Creek Mortgage NMLS #: 3001 NMLS ID# 158606

I love this photo.  My daughter is at that age!  She's just over two, but Santa is great on T.V., but not in person.  Santa terrorizes two year olds.  I do this with all of the kids so that I can print them out and put them in their photo albums.  We're saving the pics for when the get married or engaged.  I love blackmail.  It's so great being a parent.  Every parent needs a few moments of levity.

This is the only time of the year that we allow our small children to sit on the lap of a strange man, wearing strange clothes, with a full hairy beard and think it is fun for them... lol!

Oh poor little peanut!  I feel sorry for them because they are afraid, but we all do it, most of them cry and we love taking those pictures.

She will laugh someday I'm sure. for right now? Poor kid. I wonder if your parents did the same thing?

As I look back I can not remember being scared of the big red man.

It seems like we all have old photos just like this one.  They are truly priceless, as is this one.  One day your daughter will treasure this pic.  Have a great Christmas with your family.

LOL. I'll have to remember the value of the blackmail aspect.  I always wondered why parents put their little ones through this terror. Now I know :)

OMG - That is hilarious!  But I guess we shouldn't be laughing at her expense. . .Shame on us!  I have a similar picture of my daughter when she was about that age sitting on the lap of the Easter Bunny!

I agree, I don't think there is a child that isn't petrified of the man in red when they are at that age. We certainly have a few photos like that ourselves.

Larry, it's not Santa, your daughter just had a brief glance into her grownup future where she will have to pay for presents.  I am sure the panic will be only a minute because the rest of this time of year is so great.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
