Santa Claus Doesn't Live Here Any More

SteelyKid: I din't eat all my lunch today, because I didn't have time.

Daddy: Uh-huh.

SK: It's true! I'm not even lying.

D: Oh, I believe you didn't eat all your lunch, don't worry about that.

SK: Ask Santa Claus if you think I'm lying.

D: Santa Claus?

SK: Yeah. Santa Claus actually can't see everyone all the time, but he's always watching.

D: OK.

SK: He has his house in... in... in the center of the world. But he has to move it around all the time. So he can watch everyone.

D: I guess that makes sense.

SK: And you know what? He used to live right here. In our house.

D: Really?

SK: Yeah. Santa Claus used to live in our house. Back when you and Mommy got married, he lived here. But he had to move out, because he knew we were coming to live here, because we wanted this to be our home.

D: That was nice of him.

SK: He's Santa Claus. Anyway, he moved out, and went to live somewhere else. But he used to live here. And he watches everything.

D: That's a fascinating story. Thanks for telling me.

SK: It's true, too. Ask Santa Claus if you think I'm lying.

I love little kid logic with a bright shining love, and this is a fine example of the genre.
