My DD (3) has had a terrible bug, a horrible time having to leave nursery, and now has been struck down with a miserable cold!

Asking her what she wants and the answer is 'Christmas'.

Is this madness? wink

Rosencrantz - first of all, I couldn't care less what my neighbour thinks. My 3 year old was happy and smiley for the first time in over a week, and that's enough for me.

And second of all, the playroom faces the back and there's a high fence in my garden, so I don't imagine they'd have any idea that there was anything to laugh at!

Mynewmoniker Sun 17-Nov-13 20:09:56

Rosen.. Why should OP care about the neighbour, pray?

Snog Sun 17-Nov-13 19:57:14

I was considering this - so shoot me!

Rosencrantz Sun 17-Nov-13 19:53:32

This is ridiculous. If I were your neighbour I'd be laughing at you.

Haha DH isn't impressed wink I have enough christmas spirit for us both!

TheOneWithTheHair Sun 17-Nov-13 18:34:28

NannyPlum I am in awe!! grin

curiousgeorgie Sun 17-Nov-13 17:37:49

Well, I compromised and decorated her playroom and put her tree up in there...

She's very happy and I can easily shut the door wink

Usual suspect you are a woman after my own heart grin

NannyPlum that sounds fab! I would love to be creative enough to do that.

I also think it's a bit early for Xmas decorations (apart from hand crafted murals). I saw people buying real trees in B&Q today. Without roots. Won't they be dead before 1 December?

RobinSparkles Sun 17-Nov-13 17:10:08

Besides, when she said that she wants "Christmas", does she not mean that she wants actual Christmas Day when she gets all the presents?

She might be disappointed when you only put the decs up! smile

Tigresswoods Sun 17-Nov-13 17:09:44

Decs were up at soft play today. Seriously.

RobinSparkles Sun 17-Nov-13 17:06:21


You are bonkers!

I love Christmas more than anybody. I start to get excited in September, I love Christmas shopping, on Christmas morning I'm up earlier than the DC etc.

If I put the decorations up now I'd be wanting them down on the 1st December!

NannyPlumForPM Sun 17-Nov-13 17:00:27

Ah theonewiththehair basically I get big bits of card (huge) and draw my decorations! I am midway through a Christmas scene (think father Christmas, sleighful of presents, snowy house, xmas tree, snowman, reindeer, stars, snow, holly etc etc) for the entire living room wall on one side so I needed to put them up as I go. Dd likes to help, and then iv got the normal decorations for my grotto house to put up (tree/tinsel/window decs/honeycomb decs/ lights wherever I can fit them, inside and outside) and THEN it's the snowman display grin and I have a full time job and am pregnant with 2nd dc so I can't go as fast as usual!

I am more than 50% elf wink

Neighbours down the road have put up their decorations!

NoComet Sun 17-Nov-13 15:38:50

They will get horribly dusty.

A chain of fairy lights in her room and some card making perhaps, but too early for decorations.

usualsuspect Sun 17-Nov-13 15:30:54

My Christmas decorations live in my loft.

That's my point.

SoupDragon Sun 17-Nov-13 15:29:49

I don't have Christmas in my loft either so I'm not sure what your point is.

FourFlapjacksPlease Sun 17-Nov-13 15:27:06

grin usualsuspect - that is a truly excellent point.

I'd put it up if I was you OP, but I am half woman/half elf I think.

usualsuspect Sun 17-Nov-13 15:23:53

You don't tend to have a pony in your loft.

SoupDragon Sun 17-Nov-13 15:10:27

Yes, it's madness.
It is still November.
If she said she wanted a pony would you get one?

PearlArgyle Sun 17-Nov-13 15:07:25

But ignore me. I think the beginning of Dec is too early also.

PearlArgyle Sun 17-Nov-13 15:06:47

It's mid November!

TheOneWithTheHair Sun 17-Nov-13 15:05:50

Do it if it makes her happy.

NannyPlum how on earth does it take a month to put up your decorations. I can redecorate my house in that time. shock

usualsuspect Sun 17-Nov-13 14:22:45

Would you care if people judged you for putting Xmas decorations up in your own house?

Especially internet random.

OP, it's your house to do as you please with.

Of course it's madness - it's insane and I would Judge You Horribly tbh. Make some Christmas cards instead, or make her some warm Ribena and tell her it's what Santa drinks.

I hope she feels better soon but please don't put the tree up, you loon!

sooperdooper Sun 17-Nov-13 14:05:30

Far too early, make some decorations or cards instead
