Disclaimer: 10-year-olds shouldn’t read this.
Does your child believe in Santa Claus? If they still do, don’t ruin it for them. No matter how much they keep asking, just don’t tell them the truth. They’ll find out on their own, when the time is right. Be a good parent and keep pretending until then, or you know, go the extra mile and keep their dreams alive as long as you can.
There’s serious consequences that come with revealing the truth about Santa to your child. Consequences, for which the parent’s of a 10-year-old girl from Maryland, weren’t prepared for.
The little girl’s name is Belle and she had been asking her parents to tell her the truth about Santa Claus every day. Finally, the parents decided to be honest and tell her the truth. The reaction they got was heartbreaking yet hilarious at the same time.
Their little girl wrote them a note and slid it under their bedroom door. The note reads: “You have no idea what you just did. I really tried to believe. Everyone told me it’s your parents (bringing presents, not Santa). I can’t believe you anymore. Is the Easter bunny real? How ‘bout the tooth fairy, huh? You just ruined a 10-year-old child’s LIFE. Thanks. Nothing will make me feel better.”
The best part about this note is the drawing that the girl did to further describe her emotions. it’s hilarious that she tried to draw it three times, and then, just in case it wasn’t clear, she decided to hashtag it with #MiddleFingerEmoji.
Parents everywhere, beware. Don’t break your child’s heart by telling them that Santa isn’t real. Otherwise you risk being flipped off by a hand-drawn emoji.
