Christmas Wish Lists in the Abstract household

We've started writing Christmas wish lists over the last couple of years, partly due to the fact that one of my son's ended up buying his father a tin of baked beans one year because I got so sick of doing the rounds of the shops with him and that was all he could think of.  Oh wait, that's not true ~ his first idea was to give him a monkey.  So now everyone writes a wish list, so the little people can get a headstart on ideas for us and each other, without driving me round the bend!

So, here's the first one (nine year old boy child):

  1. Pensal case
  2. Lego (ninjago or star wars)
  3. Batugan
  4. Footballs
  5. Football cards
  6. Sweets
  7. Socks
  8. Jumpers
  9. Money
  10. Cheesecake 
  11. Cool pensals
  12. Cool pens
  13. Cool rubbers
  14. Crystals or fossols
  15. Skylanders
  16. Alex rider or worrier cat books
  17. Lego harry potter (Wii game)
  18. Pgamas
  19. Dressing gown
  20. Slippers
  21. Tourch

Points to note:

~ the spelling is his, I promise, not mine!  I'm not entirely convinced about phonics being the best way to learnt to read ~ mainly because it doesn't work when you try and spell!

~ I'm a mum. How am I supposed to know the difference between a pen that's cool and a pen that isn't?

~ he's asked for books ~ that has to be a good thing!

~ I know, he wants socks.  He does have socks, honestly! 

#10 ~ what can I say?

I make really good cheesecake.
