Not bought anything yet. It's ds's birthday in 3 weeks so I need to sort that first then dds birthday is at christmas so I'll do those presents first. She wants a farm smile they have asked for one small thing each from Santa (ds wants a remote control car and dd wants a toy kitten) so apart from that I think I'm going to get them both a cheap mp3 and load it with some suitable music and some junior noise reduced headphones. Then a couple small Lego bits for ds and a couple new bits for the dressing up box for dd. They will get a selection box and some new pjsand toothbrushes as well. They're going to get spoiled by grandparents so I don't go overboard or we would end up with too much.

Oh yeah ds will be 5 and dd 4 at Christmas and dc3 is due in a few weeks too but they won't get presents at that age.

JustGettingByMum - what fantastic parents you are!

If it 'sweetens' the expense, I have been to Glastonbury many times (before kids!) and if you can arrive as early as the Thursday and leave Monday morning it really is worth every penny I assure you - very good value for money! I am just waiting for my little ones to get a bit older so I can introduce the rest of 'my family' to the experience!
