Santa Claus can check at least one house in Charleston off his list this year. Cameran Eubanks has admitted that her 1-year-old daughter, Palmer, won't be getting any Christmas gifts. But before you go thinking the Southern Charm pal is the Scrooge of the South, hear the totally rational logic behind this decision.
When a fan asked Cameran, "What are you getting Palmer for Christmas?!" using Instagram Stories' "Ask Me Anything" sticker, the real estate pro wasn't even swayed by the jaunty Santa emoji. "Nothing. She has enough," Cameran responded. She added, "Santa will come when she can understand."
Indeed, at 1 year old, Palmer's too little to even realize she's getting presents. As long as she's with her family feeling all the festivity, the little one will be fine. (Just ask Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who also skipped giving their tots presents when they were too little to even peel open the wrapping paper.) Plus, a recent study even suggested that the fewer toys kiddos have, the more creative they're forced to be — so stop loading them up with useless trinkets.
And in the end, it sounds like Cameran is giving her daughter some pretty valuable gifts just by parenting so well. When another follower asked Cameran what she'll teach her daughter, the Charm-er wrote: "Help others. Help others. Help others." She also admitted in her Stories that being a mom has taught her to "grow as a human being and know unconditional love."
She's also learned to compromise a little. When a fan asked how Cameran settled on the name Palmer, she wrote: "[My husband] Jason came up with it. Everyone thinks it's a family name, it's not. I didn't like it at first. I wanted to name her June or Larkin. I finally caved and now I can't imagine her being named anything else." And if she'd had a boy? "We were going to name him Banks," she wrote.
