Mums, Dads, parenting bloggers of the world I need some Christmas list inspiration. Having spent several hours (well that’s what it seemed like) going through the Argos catalogue with Miss Roo I am quite possibly more perplexed than ever at what to ask Santa to pop under the Christmas tree this year.
You see if Roo was a typical girl it would be easy. A quick conflab in the school playground yesterday whilst freezing my wotsits off in the new arctic temperatures revealed that most of her school friends would like Cabbage Patch dolls or Barbie for Christmas. If I bought Roo either of these it would result in the fastest letter to social services for child cruelty ever written. They’d be an almighty meltdown and a tantrum of epic proportions. You see Roo is much more at home with a Power Rangers sword, a Nerf gun or some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
