We took Owen to see Santa at Petsmart again this year. When we got about 10 feet from Santa, he pretty much freaked out and started screaming at the top of his lungs for several minutes. Eventually, the photographer started dancing around with a silly dog toy and Owen stopped crying long enough to get a couple of pictures. Please note the tears still on his cheeks. So sad. The whole ordeal left me wondering, are we really mean parents for subjecting him to this? Or, would we be worse if we didn't take him to see Santa? Also, after we paid some managerish looking woman came up to us and asked if it was our child who was screaming like that. She could hear him all the way in the back of the store. Thanks lady. We were wondering.
