Tyger’s Christmas List

I had my first night out in about four years on Friday and ended up…a little worse for wear.  As a result, I was unable to to write my usual blog post yesterday (I was unable to do much except lie on the sofa feeling very sorry for myself).

So, a quick blog post today.  Tyger has become ‘aware’ of adverts and of the fact things can be ordered/bought.  This has led to many very repetitive conversations starting with, ‘My want…’ until I came up with a strategy.  Every time this happens, now, I suggest we write it on his Christmas list and then we’ll just see which things he gets at Christmas.  For the time being, he accepts this response.

I’m not convinced he’s going to get everything on the list, though.  Perhaps you can see why:

Tyger’s Christmas List 2015

  • Necklace
  • Beads
  • Microwave
  • Red racing car
  • Castle
  • Orange glasses
  • Temporary tattoos
  • A big Totoro like a real one
  • Circus tent
  • Piggy bank
  • A real helicopter
  • A real plane
  • Watch
  • A sausage dog that climbs trees
  • Hetty Hoover toy
  • Real Henry Hoover
Some things are perhaps a little more realistic than others, though I like the idea of getting a real Totoro!

What’s the weirdest thing your child (or you as a child) has asked for as a birthday or Christmas present?

  2. This is great!!! I tell the kids that we will ask Santa or maybe for your birthday all of the time. It has worked for a couple years now so hopefully it continues to work for you. #anythinggoes

  3. Lol, now you just have to nominate which family member/friend is buying what! Good luck on the plane and helicopter 🙂

  7. He's added 'a real baby' to the list, too. I'm definitely not getting him that one! I'm all done. Haha.

    Thanks for reading.

  8. I can imagine. Tyger was enthralled by every single tiny stocking present last year (took him about an hour to get through it!) let alone the other presents but I bet they want more and more, costing more and more as they get older!

    Thanks for reading.
