Santa Photos for Pro Parents

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

I took my son to his first Santa photo op as a toddler last year…

Toddler cries on santa's lap.

Maybe my son is Jewish? ¡Fail-is Navidad!

His very first experience as a tiny worm-monkey-baby doesn’t count because he wasn’t big enough to fight back. But this time, just as we arrived to perch him on Santa’s lap, the photo equipment broke down and we sat there for over an hour. I think the photo speaks for itself.

So, I have a question for you…

What do you think Finn's reaction will be in this year's Santa photo?

    You can see in Santa’s eyes that he is questioning his calling. Finn, you broke Santa!

    My prediction is PAIN for Santa and later a fall off the wagon in a dark bar that cashes paychecks and only serves regulars and has some desperate name like “My Way”.

  3. Oh, no! This made me laugh so hard!! Love it!!! It’ll be interesting to see how Archer does:). Happy Thanksgiving, Charlie!

    He’ll either sit there totally baffled or… you’ll never get close.

    BTW this pic is the kind I’d love to put on my Christmas cards for the people who REALLY love my family. l

    Luckily the photographer started taking photos the second Evie (8 months) sat on Santa’s lap, cause she looked him in the eye, then looked back at me and started screaming, so we have a nice photo of Santa and the side and back of Evie’s head, you can’t see the horror in her eyes. My first was 5 months, and he liked Santa his first Christmas, and tolerated him his second Christmas, my second was about 5 weeks old, and only about 5lb, so you can only just see his head and feet sticking out of Santa’s arm, and neither of them will go near him anymore, even though they know at 6 and 3 that he’s the guy who brings the toys

  9. He’ll probably be like: WTH?! My Dad makes me stand next to the Easter Bunny, Mickey Mouse &co., now Santa–and then he has the chutzpah to write about MY issues!?

  10. They couldn’t possibly be paid enough for the work they do. My hat is off to store Santa’s everywhere

    eek! i think he’ll touch his beard and perhaps try to yank it off? haha. happy thanksgiving! 🙂

    Probably silent, bug-eyed fear! %^ |
