Dear Santa! A letter from a 2 year old

Dear Santa,

I have been a really good boy this year for Mummy and Daddy, I do have the odd occasion where I may just play up a little bit but they are just learning curves and I say sorry afterwards! Well I heard Mummy talking to Daddy last night whilst i was laying in my bed pretending to be asleep (Sshh! don’t tell!) about what to buy for me for Christmas and they was talking about buying me a toddler tablet, which yes I would really love to have but It’s not what I really need, so here is my list:

1. I love to play with my Mummies hair, it helps me get to sleep and I always need it to comfort me when i am upset, So please may I have A wig of her hair so I don’t have to play with my own hair

2. Mummy asked me the other day what I wanted from Santa and I told her that I wanted a Motorbike, she laughed at me obviously thinking that I didn’t know what I was talking about but she’s wrong, I really do want my own Motorbike! When we was on holiday in the Summer I had to park my scuttlebug next to a Motorbike, I was SO embarrassed! It made my bike look small, so to stop any future embarrassment I think owning my own motorbike would be awesome

3. Last year I was filmed for an advert for Cow & Gate and I got the chance to play in a recording studio, I didn’t think much of the instruments that they put out for me and the other children to play with but I absolutely loved banging my shoe onto the recording mixing desk and I would really like to play on one again. So I would like Santa to bring me one of my own so that i can mix up some tunes and have some more fun with some more of my shoes

 4. I would like a very big hall for me to run around in as much as I want til my heart is content. When I sit with Mummy when Joseph is at Gymnastics, I get to run and play in the hall and I love it! I get to do my roly poly’s and run around the edges again and again, sometimes resulting in Mummy asking me to calm down, but how can I? The hall is huge! And I just want to run.

5. An Ikea trolley would make a perfect substitute for a bed and I personally find them really comfortable, much to the fact that, whenever we are shopping there, I fall asleep in them. I don’t think Mummy will mind if I put it into the bedroom, would she?

6. One last item that would really make my Christmas Day would be a bottle of milk! I love the stuff! Mummy wants me to get rid of it but there is no chance that it will happen in the near future! She tried to tell me that you, Santa wants all of my bottles and that I have to leave them for you on Christmas Eve, but i don’t believe her! Well she will have a shock when she learns that you have sent me more lol

If I receive my gifts, Santa, I will love you forever! I promise that I will continue to be a good boy and strive to be the best that I can. I will leave you one of my half eaten chocolate bars (it will make Mummy happy as she normally finds them under the sofa) but please put the wrapper into the bin when you have finished as she will not be happy otherwise.

Love forever

A Birthday Party fit for a Moshi Monster

Joseph turned 5 over the weekend and he celebrated in style with his friends and family. As he is a big Moshi Monster fan he asked if he could have a Moshi themed party. Now i’m not very good at planning and dont have much time on my hands to really go all out with it but Jak and myself put our heads together and came up with some ideas for food to serve up and with the help from a lovely lady who i found on twitter who helped with me some ideas as what sort of games we could play. Check out www.actoneparties.co.uk.

First up Joseph woke to a table full of presents and cards which he ripped open all too quickly, he loved playing with his new toys and had a game of his ‘Guess the Moshi’ with daddy and big brother Jak.

Joseph was having a party in the afternoon so we had lots of planning to get on with especially tidying up the garden and house ready for all the visitors we would be receiving. The pool was up, clean, chlorinated and heating up nicely, the food was all ready laid out on the table, decorations were up and music all ready to play. Children started to arrive about lunch time and off they all went straight outside to the garden ready to get into the pool and play find Zommers missing eyeball (gross, I know!). I had bought lots of pin pong balls and had drawn eyeballs on them all with only two of them having a gold star on them, the child who found the special Zommer eyeball received a little prize.

After about an hour We had to grab the children out of the pool so we could carry on with some of the games we had planned for the party, we had A moshi hunt where the children had to hunt out their very own moshlings which were hidden in the garden, some in the sandpit and some in the goo that we made up, then they all strutted their stuff in the Zac Binspin Rockstar disco where i chose a couple of groovy dancers to win a prize and then it was time for them all to sit down and eat some moshi grub. We did have the BBQ going as well so there was quite a selection of food for them to get their teeth into.

The children had some original party food along with Dirt sandwiches, Quenut butter, Sunshine Berries, Garlic Mushrooms, Grand Gateau, Bangers and Crash and Egg Flowers and for juice they had Toad Soda and Fango Mandango

After a spot of food they all went outside to bash the Pinata, they all loved bashing away and took some smacking for it to drop all of the goodies, then they all popped back into the swimming pool for some more play and games. We didn’t even have time to play pass the moshi but i didn’t care as the children seemed to be enjoying themselves splashing around and jumping into the pool.

Joseph had a brilliant day and really had lots of fun, so thank you to everyone who made his day a special one. He got spoilt with all the presents and money he received and it was hard for me to drag him to bed as he didn’t want his birthday to end. We have another cake to give him today when he comes home from school and a special birthday meal, which he has chosen to be noodles and chicken.

Thank you for reading!
