She is 4yo and poorly. She has been vomiting every hour or so since 3am. She loves school (in yR) and is upset not to be there. Currently on sofa wrapped up with duvet, teddy, sick bucket, untouched dry toast and water. And cbeebies.

She is Brave obsessed. Saw it at the cinema last summer. We have bought her the DVD for Christmas (Father Christmas is bringing her the dressing up dress smile) and I can just imagine how much it would cheer the poor little mite up if I got the DVD out and snuggled up on the sofa to watch it with her.

Should I?

yes.

I would too, hope she gets better soon.

sausagesandwich34 Thu 13-Dec-12 12:02:25

yes, she won't miss 1 present on christmas morning I'm sure

Yes, why not make a nice memory out of sick day? I'm sure she'd be thrilled with it on Christmas day but no doubt she'll have lots of other things to open then too.

Perfect gift for a Brave girl, plus it will make her want the dress even more smile

bigbadbarry Thu 13-Dec-12 12:02:57

Definitely!

I would give her it. I hope she feels better soon x

bigbadbarry Thu 13-Dec-12 12:03:24

I mean, definitely N BU

Gillyweed001 Thu 13-Dec-12 12:04:11

yes, and I hope she feels better soon

Definitely. A nice DVD will make her feel so much better.

Does she want a pencil case (free when we visited somewhere to eat)

Poledra Thu 13-Dec-12 12:07:25

I would. But mainly because I want to see Brave grin

<<crosses fingers that DH's uncle did buy it for DD2 for Christmas as I suggested>>

I would too

I would even go as far as giving it to her wrapped and saying Santa has sent an early present to cheer her up because she's so poorly.

aprilrain Thu 13-Dec-12 12:12:10

Yes I really want to see it too! 'twas my DH took her to see it at the cinema. Ok you have all made my mind up for me. I'm going to get it - can't wait to see her little face light up!

I would too smile yanbu smile

Great idea. Poor lamb.

IloveJudgeJudy Thu 13-Dec-12 12:16:38

Im hard smile. I wouldn't. I have older DC. My DC always had to wait until Christmas Day for their Christmas presents. I felt they wouldn't appreciate stuff if it were just given to them willy-nilly, whenever.

ProtegeMoi Thu 13-Dec-12 12:17:54

Aww I would but i'm a completely softy when kids are ill.

Does she believe in Santa? You might have to think about how to explain the present appearing early.

juneybean Thu 13-Dec-12 12:23:09

Well it is the 1st day of Christmas

aprilrain Thu 13-Dec-12 14:51:37

She does believe in Santa, but he only brings one present. The rest are from her family and friends.

I agree about not having things 'whenever'. My DH wanted to give her this 3 weeks ago when he bought it but I persuaded him to put it away. Today wasn't a 'whenever' day. She's really poorly and miserable.

Anyway, she's had it - we did wrap it up and said it was a nearly Christmas present. She was over the moon. We had a happy couple of hours ensconced in the ancient lands of Dunbroch!

Merry Christmas everyone smile

Awww, lovely. I hope it cheered the poor little poppet up smile

Yanbu

ProtegeMoi Thu 13-Dec-12 15:46:35

Aww bless.
Hope she feels better soon.

WizardofOs Thu 13-Dec-12 15:48:57

I would. I would do it even for DS1 who is 9. (Can imagine his face if I prodcuced Brave for him).

youarewinning Thu 13-Dec-12 15:53:14

I would have too.Children love DVD's but IME any DS gets at Christmas are rarely watched for weeks as they have other things to play with. Better just to say as your ill we'll watch a DVD and produce a brand new one.

Does help you then become the best mummy ever not the mean one who cannot make them feel better grin
