“The two baby belly, please!”

When I was very small, my mom and dad would put me to bed on christmas eve and then have a small party to put up the tree they'd hidden in the garage. I don't remember coming down the stairs in the morning and being filled with wonderment, but that's what they said I did, so I'll have to believe them.
And we'd go to Field's every year to sit on Santa's lap and have lunch under the tree in the Walnut Room, until one year I said I didn't want to sit on his lap, but still wanted to have lunch. Nope. It was an all or nothing proposition, so that was it for me and Santa. I could tell it was my mother's handwritting on the Santa presents anyway.
I'm so glad that my girls have never shown much of an interest in Santa. I firmly fall into the "that's lying" camp.

This is the tradition my mom grew up with, except instead of Santa it was Baby Jesus who brought the tree and decorated it. They also used real candles. This was in Europe.
When I was a kid, my mom and my best friend's mom corroborated on Santa's handwriting on the gift tags. We were 8, 9 years old - it was fun.

Ah yes, Christmas lunch in the Walnut Room. Good times. But I *never*, not once, had to sit in Santa's lap. Thank goodness.

Or are LW1 and LW3 two creative fake letters based on this joke:
Four-year-old Brandi had a bad habit of chewing her fingernails. Her mother scolded her, "Brandi, if you don't stop biting those nails, you're going to get yourself a big, ugly bloated belly! Is that what you want?"
"No, mama," said Brandi, sadly.
On a trip to the dentist in Shreveport, Brandi was nervous and had absent-mindedly started chewing on
a nail again.
"Brandi! What did i tell you about that?" snapped her mother.
"That I'd get a big, ugly belly."
"And is that what you want?" snarled her mother.
"No, mama," replied Brandi.
As the elevator opened to take them to the dentist,
out stepped a woman who was at least seven months
"Mama!" cried Brandi, "I know what she's been doing!!"
