#12DaysOfParenting


Dear Santa


We hope you, Rudolph and all the reindeer are well and that the stress of getting everything ready for Christmas isn’t too much.  The children have been loving learning Away In A Manager this year – we’ve had it at breakfast, lunch, dinner and even at 6am in the morning! Such a delightful song!!!

We are learning lots of Christmas songs this year, although Little Sir and Daddy will insist on singing ‘Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg’!  We are also trying to learn all the rest of the reindeer names so they don’t feel left out (Little Sir has been quite insistent about this!). As we have been mostly good this year (only a few hiccoughs on Mr N’s part), we are writing to let you know what we would like for Christmas. This is our list:

  • Little Sir would very much like some battle tanks.  As you nodded when he met you at the farm this weekend, he is feeling super confident that he may receive his wish.  Mummy and Daddy are a little less certain as they have literally no idea what on earth battle tanks are/where to buy them/if they even exist!
  • Little Miss would like – in her words – ‘a cot which can turn into a bed which has sides which come off which the baby doll can sleep in which the big doll can sleep in’.  I hope you got that one?!? Thankfully Mummy and Daddy know exactly what she is talking about as the idea ‘may’ have been planted in her mind when she was talking about a bed for her dolls!
  • Daddy would very much like his whole Amazon wish list. Unfortunately Daddy has forgotten that he is now a grown up and, as much as he would like 42 different items (including playstation games, star wars figures and random bags) Mummy has already said that if any more rubbish arrives to clog up the new house, then they will be having words!
  • As for Mummy. Well Mummy is the hard one.  There is very little that she would actually like, gift wise. What she would like is the magic of the season to be more important than the presents. She would love for the children to be more aware of others and to bring the joy that we feel to as many people as we can. Really she would like Christmas this year to be filled with fun, laughter, love, family and friendship. That is more than any gift could ever be and more than she could ever wish for.
We really hope that you can help fulfil our wishes (and seriously if you can give us some help on the battle tanks, Mummy and Daddy would be VERY grateful!).  We will be baking mince pies just before Christmas Day so don’t forget to look out for them by the side of the fire, along with a carrot for Rudolph. Have a safe journey across the world – we will be watching as you pass across the moon on Christmas Eve.

With love
