Something for Me as a Woman.

My charming but maniacal three year old son has excitedly announced what he intends to give me for Christmas:

1) A saucepan.
2) Some bacon.

'Perhaps something for me as a woman?' I beg. (Words straight out of my own mother's mouth.).


Something for me as a woman...
He re-thinks.  He is quiet, which is such a rare occurrence, that this obviously necessitates some serious consideration.  I hold my breath in wonder while he decides:

3) A big fat fairy shirt.
4) A big fat French Stick.


My rather more refined seven year old joins in.  He also takes his time:  

'A trip to London (on the train) and to go to Café Rouge.'

That's my boy.


Only another four years training required! 



Tell me, what would your children really like to be giving you for Christmas?  Dare you ask them?

  1. Ahhhh I love the fairy shirt...abs maybe you could eat the French stick on the way to London? Z doesn't talk much yet but he would probably say "cake", "dummy" and "want walk!" as possible suggestions :)

    1. Ah yes, but what does she want to get you? We went to see some real reindeer in East Sussex. Am writing about them next!

  3. Bacon and a french stick = lovely bacon sarnie come Boxing Day morn. A big fat hairy shirt = just what you need for cleaning new saucepan when it has been caked in a cranberry glue that no Brillo pad can cope with. The lad's a genius! The other's pretty cute too!
    As a Woman I'm sure you've used your 'ways' to persuade boyf to purchase wisely! As a Woman myself I've 'suggested' where money could be spent. It's small, sparkly and flying in from NYC when I've got round to get my finger measured... tee hee...

  4. I really don't dare ask Ma Puce!! On a separate note... it does feel so good to be earning something from the online shenanigans we get upto doesn't it. Your ex sounds like a right charmer!! BTW your twitter link doesn't seem to be working on here and I can't find you on Twitter... though that second bit may well be me being a ditz, was going to have a twitter natter about online £££ with you!!

  5. Fabulous! If you got all of them you could cook up bacon sarnies on Xmas morning wearing your fairy shirt :0). At least Older boy is on the right track :0)

    Pip has informed me on numerous occasions that F.C is bringing me a dolls house and a pink princess dress. I've obviously been a very good girl!

  6. Zachy likes to give me things that he thinks we will both enjoy - so Buzz Lightyear toys and Peppa Pig DVDs...

    I'd be quite happy with a pan and some bacon though :-)

  7. I remember at about age 7, my dad asked what we should get mum for her birthday. I suggested a bedside table for the spare room. Well I knew she wanted one.

  8. I'd love a big fat fairy shirt. (if only I knew what one was.) Bless him!

  9. I think the saucepans probably were intended as something for you as a woman. My parents share the same birthday and my father has always lamented that my mother gets in first when friends ask what they want so he'd spent four decades of married life receiving saucepans and recipe books. In my household it's the Vicar who desires such things. My womanhood would rejoice in more sharp tools for my garden shed.

    1. I don't want anything for the kitchen and, more importantly, don't want to be seen as only someone who is always in the kitchen, which I always am!

  11. Oh yes, Scamp took money into to school for a 'Festive dhop' they run where for £1 the children can pick a present for each family member and get it wrapped...
    She whispered that she bought daddy ssome 'Tuesday socks' so he could wear them when she wears her Tuesday pants and I creased up, naturally.
    Then last night she accidentally told me what she picked for me that is sitting under the tree...
    A Cat Calendar.
    Dear lord!
