    That is why you don’t tell little kids about someone else’ presents at Christmas.

    Doesn’t Elizabeth still think that santa Claus gives the presents?

    Of course Elizabeth believes Santa gives the presents, but only the presents for kids. (Adults are on their own.)

    When I was a kid Santa brought most of the presents, but the adults also gave a few themselves.

    this is why I am not taking my grandchildren shopping for their parents until RIGHT before Christmas……less time for the youngest one to tell.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    It’s hard for most adults to keep a secret, but for a kid, it’s almost impossible. I once overheard my son trying not to tell his sister what she was getting for her birthday. His words went like this, “If I knew something but I don’t, but if I did, I wouldn’t tell you but it’s something you’ll really, really like.” He struggled with every word, and in the end, managed not to tell. I was so proud of him!

    Never take the little ones shopping for a surprise.

    When i was about five, I asked my Mom why my parents bought gifts for grandma and grandpa, and other reletives but they didn’t get us kids anything. only Santa gave us presents. Which was when she also told me the truth about Santa.
    When my kids were small, we always gave them a couple of gifts marked from Mom and Dad too.

    My brother used to either threaten or beat secrets out of us, my cousin and me. One time he threatened to knock over the tree and ruin everybody’s Christmas if we didn’t tell him what we knew.

    Have you considered since Liz is a toddler, she has to go shopping with her mom and sees whatever she buys?? So Liz told her dad what mom got for him. When moms go shopping for the family, they don’t take children shopping with her – she finds a babysitter or have the kids stay with their father.

    I like Elly’s reaction in the second and third panels. It is so over-the-top as if her toddler had committed a horrible crime. Elly never has a mild reaction to anything.
