Santa Is Dumb

I have officially decided that Santa Claus is just plain stupid.  The older I get and the more kids I have, the more I hate that fat, overly-jolly, sneaky old guy.  I mean, I feel like it is my obligation as a "good" parent to take my little kids to the over-crowded, depressing mall to stand in a ridiculously long line, so that I can be guilted into spending way too much for a stupid picture that I will probably lose anyways.  

At least that is what was going through my head as I waited in line with three rambunctious toddlers.  I really didn't last very long.  I got out of line, took a picture from afar of Santa and headed to the mall playground.  

Look, here is a blonde kid on Santa's knee.  My kids are blonde.  Close enough!

The line goes all the way around the back of that Christmas tree.  I am standing at the halfway point. It is a Monday afternoon, for crying out loud. Shouldn't these kids be in daycare or something, or home taking a nap? What is going on here?

But the playground sure was fun. We hadn't been in a while.  The kids had a blast.

Way better than Santa.

So hillarious! "My kids are blonde. Close enough." LOL! And the kids are dressed so dapper, too. Good looking little bunch you've got there!
