You know that Santa photo, where your kid is crying on Santa’s lap and you have to stop yourself from laughing? It’s a rite of passage.
But one mum was laughing out loud when she saw this particular cry for help from her son in his photo with Santa.
Kerry Spencer shared a Tweet of her preschooler son using the sign language for ‘help’ as he sat on Santa’s lap, captioning the photo:
We taught our baby sign language. This is the sign for “help.” You’re welcome. pic.twitter.com/i6NkxBf4KP

Other parents were quick to jump on board and share their Santa versus signing kids stories:
I have a photo of my daughter at a similar age signing “All done!” while next to Santa.

Whilst others shared photos of their kids doing a different kind of signing all together…
Wonder what my son was trying to say. Lol pic.twitter.com/A1XBZduanC

And it’s gender inclusive…
Our daughter’s been learning too 😬 pic.twitter.com/L13AsF7Y7o

It turns out Kerry’s kids are both a bit unsure about the whole Santa thing. She later shared another little piece of Santa wisdom from her kids on Twitter,writing: “To be fair, the whole tradition of Santa is creepy af. Here is what my daughter has to say about it:”
11yo: Santa is so sketch. He stalks you. He breaks into your house. He kisses your mother. And then there’s the whole grandma situation.
*It’s 2017. No man is above reproach*
