So G doesn't like Santa at all. This started last year and hasn't resolved itself yet. So the other night as we are drifting off to sleep I ask if she would have her picture made with santa. She replied with a pretty quick no but I couldn't let it go.
Me: "well what if I stood beside you, would you then have a picture with santa?"
G: "no, I might be scared."
Me: "well what if I gave you a prize for having your picture taken with Santa? I don't care if you cry or not."(see I am not heartless, it doesn't have to be a happy pic.)
G: "Well, well, mama, um how about dis? How about I get a pwize anyway and not have my picture with Santa? Now dats weeyawie(really) a good idea."
Me: "yeah, um, no. No Santa, no prize."
