I took the DS's to town today and in a bid to try and get some idea of little extras to go with their "main" presents asked them what they wanted for Christmas.

DS1 (9) helpfully couldn't think of anything - except for a PSP "which I know I won't get as it's too expesnive"

DS2 thought long and hard and then announced he wanted a calendar - as his main present.

My dd wants some jellybeans and for daddy to have the day off work. The first I can do.

Oh how sweet.

DD1 wants a laptop shock no chance

DD2 wants a cow shock no chance

Brilliant!

We had a friend come and stay with us in London once and we went to the Natural History Museum with her. She had a rather weird and wonderful list of demands for presents from 3 of her 4 children for stuff from there. The other child just wanted 'sweets'. I thought that was funny/cute!

(He's actually getting a High School Musical MP3 player for his main present) - but I guess I could stretch to a calendar for him as well ( especially as the ones he pointed out to me where the ones in the 99p shop grin)

For the past two years my DD (now 6) has asked for and been happy with a Torch and a Watch.

Last year they got a join present of a Wii so guess I must be doing something right that they're not expecting another mega expensive present each

My nearly 6 year old (I think almost exactly the same age as your DS2 - my one's birthday is 22nd November) seems to have grasped that you can't have everything you want, although he would love a lego police station (thanks to my selling things on ebay, using nectar points and argos having a good price for it, he is getting one smile).

I think as long as there are presents he will be happy smile.

DD (4) said "I think most 4 year olds are happy with whatever they open" smile

yes - they are nearly the same age - DS2 is 27 November (what a FABULOUS day your DS was born on - the day we won the Rugby World Cup)

He was born on a great day indeed grin. He was born at 2:50am and the day got even better smile

oh good - so you didn't miss it then - phew.

I was lucky DS2 didn't arrive later that day as when Jonny kicked that ball over just as the whistle went DH and I literally jumped around the room.......mind you - my waters did go the following morining - don't think he liked being chucked around inside me like that and popped them grin
