How is it November already? Have we really just done Bonfire night? There’s no denying it people – Christmas is well and truely coming. This year I’ll have a 6 year old and 18 month old twins. While Charlie can tell Santa what he wants, the girls are a different kettle of fish. So I’m going to read between the lines and if they could talk I’m pretty sure this is what would be on my twins lists:
Without fail, if someone leaves a pack unattended for more than seven seconds, the contents will be ripped out and strewn all across the floor. They will probably try to chew a few or wipe the fireplace in an attempt to make best use. But I’ve accepted that a good 35% of all packets of wipes will end up in the bin unused. So their own cheapo wipes that they can distribute to their hearts desire would be top of their list.
Tiny bits of Lego
I’m such an evil mother. I always take their brothers lego off them; I mean all they want to do is to rip it apart then either try to eat it or shove it up their nose – I am such a party pooper! Their gift bsck to me however is usually agonisingly tiny lego morsels that they can hide on the carpet to ensure maximum pain to be inflicted on my feet. And that would definitely be payback for me being an evil witch that takes lego off them. Twins 1, Evil Mother 0.
Plug Wire necklaces
The latest must have in any toddlers wardrobe. My girls definitely have a see it, want it mentality and plug necklaces are top of the list. Any unattended wires are certain to be draped around their little necks in a chic manner. It seems this autumn/winter that white is in as they ALWAYS HOME IN ON MY PHONE CHARGER. It’ll be on all the kids catwalks I tell you.
A handbag full to tip out
Well any good necklace needs to be teamed with a good handbag. And one full to the brim with important Mom stuff is perfect. Make sure there’s plenty of make up that can be opened and thrown everywhere. Oh and purses with hundreds of credit cards are PERFECT. Nothing better than taking every single one out and chucking them everywhere. (still don’t know what happened to that Boots card…) In case you don’t get them a plug wire necklace – handbag straps are also acceptable, they too are great neck attire.
Felt tips to colour in her sister
Oh. Dear. Need I say anymore?!
Why clean yourself in the bath when you can eat one? I think we get through about two a month. A stockpile for Christmas would be perfect. Think I may stick with flannels although they’re currently banned as they whip each other in the eye with them…
So there you go Santa. That’s what would be really welcomed in our house this year. Ho ho ho.
(Please note no babies were harmed in the making of plug necklaces!)
