Toddlers Christmas List

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?!
A sponge 
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!)

    He he how about their own wall they can freely write on and a couple of lipsticks they can squish up in the lid without being told off 🙂 I love it. We still go through loads of wipes. What is it with putting it on their heads? It must be a universal child thing. Ho ho ho

    Lol, this definitely sounds like the perfect toddler wish list to me! What is it with babies and wanting to empty packets of wipes, all the credit cards all over the floor and wear phone charger necklaces?! My youngest would also like paper and string to chew on 🙂

    Max is 18 months and obsessed with my phone charger, it’s like the holy grail – why??!!! Wipes are always a winner too, he leaves them all over the floor so I stand on them and get soggy socks…. #TheList

    HAHAH!! my 1 year old would love all the things on this list!! Add in a Bin, a cupboard he can empty, a spoon he can bang the cupboards loudly with and anything which lights up – i.e laptop, iphone, remote control.

    Haha this made me laugh, its spot on, I get so frustrated when I see almost the entire pack of wipes on the floor… usually because he only ever does it when its the last pack in the house.

    Ha ha! Yep, wipe packets and all the things they are not supposed to play with. I would add klippits to the list, you know the little plastic clips that you use on opened packets of food. My baby loves them, as did his elder brother and sister. #thelist

    Ha ha, I am sure Baby’s list would be pretty close to this. She loves anything with a cable attached to it. To be fair I could probably give her a pile of stones and she would be happy. #ThinkSheIsMakkaPakka Thanks for linking to #TheList x
