Is it teething time for your little one?
The children have already sent off their lists to the North Pole, but we here at MummyPages have compiled our own wish list for Santa. These are the gifts we DON’T want under the tree this year. We have been good mothers all year and believe we are on Santa’s nice list so we would really appreciate if he took note of these little requests.
Dear Santa,
  • We don’t want any toys that require dozens of batteries to run and that stop operating after 45 seconds (we don’t have an endless supply of Duracell in the cupboard unfortunately).
  • Lollypops. Ok, they make lovely stocking fillers and we don’t mind one or two but please don’t fill the whole stocking with them. Children are already hyper at Christmas…let’s not add lots of sticky, sugary sweets into the mix.
  • Seriously noisy toys. We have noticed that toys are getting louder and louder in recent years and we would prefer that our eardrums remain intact on Christmas day. We can handle a little noise, but if you could refrain from leaving a remote control police car that is louder that a real squad car, that would be great.
  • Cheap €2 toys. If the toy has broken before the turkey is carved, we will be making an angry trek to the North Pole.
  • Toys that shoot things. This one is fairly obvious…toys that shoot things leads to tears and general destruction around the house.
  • A puppy. Yes, we know it makes for a fantastic present on Christmas day and puppies are super cute, but who do you think will have to feed it and walk it and clean up its poop? It won’t be the kids!
  • Any dolls that are dressed like a dominatrix. We don’t want fishnet stockings and boob-tubes to be on our little girls Santa list next year (and if they are on her list Santa, you are not to bring them!)
  • Baby dolls and toy  that poop and pee. We saw them on the Late Late Toy Show and we think they are awful. Mums have cleaned enough poo over the years…we’ve had enough thanks.
Kind Regards,
The MummyPages Team x
