Innocence: exterminated

Jasper: Mum, is Santa not really real and just the mums and dads buy the presents?

Me: (aghast/faux horror): What?

Jasper: Just tell me.

Me: What!?!

Jasper: Is Santa not real and you and Dad buy the presents.

Me: Who told you that?

Jasper: Just tell me.

Me: If we talk about this you have to promise me you say nothing to Grover.

Jasper: nods

Me: nods

(beat)

Jasper: So can you buy me the remote control dalek.

Innocence: exterminated.

 

Onward.
