child writing a letter to Santa(iStock)

Children across the globe are carefully scribing their naughty-or-nice confessions to Santa with hopes that they’ve been nice enough to get that Tonka truck they saw on TV, or the hottest new designer Barbie doll. Some moms snuck a peak inside the North-Pole-addressed envelope (who wouldn’t?), and this is what they learned....

My 8-year-old daughter told Santa she wants Justin Bieber to go away. I can’t decide if this is naughty or nice. I’m leaning towards nice. - Lauren

“I didn’t like my dinner,” my youngest wrote to Santa, “so I gave it to the dog and she threw up. Please don’t tell Mommy.” – Faye

My 8-year-old said she throws away her school lunches because “Mommy’s cooking is yucky.” She also asked for a cookbook this year. On the one hand, ouch! On the other, hey I can use all of the help I can get! - Kirsten
