Happy Holidays from Dad to the Future! In this episode, Dennis and John talk about when they stopped believing in Santa Claus – spoiler alert: Dennis never did; how John and his wife handled Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny with their girls, and Dennis wonders how him and Betsy will present Santa to their son.
While his mom was getting him ready for bed tonight, Harrison saw his baby crocs on the shelf across from the changing table – shoes he hasn’t even worn yet because they’ve been too big – and decided he must wear them immediately. He wore them through story time, and refused to let them be taken off as he was put in his crib.
One came off a few minutes later, and he began crying until Betsy went and put it back on. He’s still sleeping in them now.
And that’s how our son went from being 2 years old to 42 years old overnight.
John Mick joins the podcast as a regular co-host of Season 2. In this episode, We talk about the perennial controversy over the holiday song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”, and use it as a jumping off point to talk about consent – how we learned about it growing up, and how we hope to teach our kids.
The song featured in the 1949 film “Neptune’s Daughter” on YouTube:
