2 years ago, I discovered at the last minute that I had no cookies in the house to leave for Santa, along with the glass of milk. I told Fisher, who was 3 at the time, that we should leave Santa a piece of pie instead as a special treat. Fisher thought for a minute and then said "no, Santa needs to not eat too much pie because he has a big tummy like dad!" We all laughed and decided we should help Santa trim down so now, he gets an apple and a diet coke!

Around here old Santa, use to get cookies, milk, and the kids left carrots and celery for the reindeer..Of course dear old St. Nick also would raid the refrigerator, leaving the clean kitchen with assorted glasses,plates and utensils...Now, being the kids are grown, he just raids the refrigerator, before it's the middle of the night and gets it over with and cleaned up!!!
Poor old duffer now has to make his own treats

When my boys were younger, we'd leave him oreos and milk (with ice in the milk, since we weren't sure when he'd arrive)

Last year I was getting out the Christmas stuff, and there was a note from "Santa" that I must've written 7 years ago. Besides the typical "Thank you for the cookies", it said things like "I see you have a new dog this year. She told me that she loves you very much, but please stop yanking on her tail".
It worked like a charm. :)

We do christmas cookies and milk and carrots for Rudolph. Sometimes we sprinkle birdseed on the ground for the reindeer to eat also. Santa always leaves just a few crumbs and sometimes a note.

I love this, jkath! Santa definitely helps me out in the good behavior department this time of year, but I never thought of this angle. My mind is racing with the possibilities. Thanks so much for posting this.

you bet!

(I remember my older boy, who was 8 at the time, questioning the validity, so I matter-of-factly told him "well, you don't think just anyone can talk to animals, now, do you?)

Looking back, I wish I'd had "Santa" tell them that he couldn't bring any more big toys unless they had a clean room!

I think Santa is going to not be able to bring anything else unless someone starts using the potty AT ALL TIMES!

Ah, suziquzie, you have a boy..... they are different animals than we are. But don't give up hope - I have 5 sons and they all use the potty every time now.
