Father Christmas! Please bring me…

For the first time in ages, part of me is actually looking forward to Christmas. I cant wait to see the children open their presents and I’m trying my hardest to wind them up into a frenzy about it. So far, it hasn’t worked:

Me: “What do you want Father Christmas to bring?”
Boy:”Me dunno, skateboard?”
Me: “I think he only brings really big boys skateboards, anything else?”
Boy: “Nah, you choose”

He really is like me, how does one inspire and excite the child who doesn’t want anything other than the one thing they cant have? Dear Father Christmas please bring me a little boy who wants a bike, for this is what he has got…

    As my ex wife and I are divorced my kids have two Xmas days. Mine is always the second Xmas day as, if I have the kids Christmas Day, my ex gives them her presents on Christmas Eve (if she has them on Christmas Day I give them mine on Boxing Day). By the time they come to me they could not care less about presents!

    I usually, forget to mention the the xmas bit and say things like &quot;oh look at that bike&quot; do any of your friends ride one like that?&quot; When he was younger it was &quot;do you ride the bikes in nursery?&quot;<br /> <br />This year the eldest is 4 and he just wants everything he has seen advertised on the tv which is quite a lot.

    I&#39;m sure he&#39;ll love his bike. Its the first step on the road to manhood.
