I miss the anticipation of being a child and the lead up to Christmas. Going through the catalogues and picking out the toys you want, telling Santa and then crossing your fingers and hoping that those are under the tree on Christmas Day.
One year I desperately wanted a Barbie Bus – it was a sort of campervan thing, I think it even had a spa! It came to Christmas Day and the Barbie Bus wasn’t under the tree. Of course, I don’t remember any of this but apparently I didn’t react very well. Christmas came around again and surprise! The Barbie Bus was under the tree that year. Dad spent a very stressful Christmas day putting the thing together and vowed we would never get anything like that again! Of course, now that he has grandchildren he has helped put together toy kitchens and bikes but that’s obviously not the same.
Now that I have children it seems some of that magic has come back. (On a side note, I have children now! I can barely believe I have one daughter, let alone two!) I loved watching Lily last year as she began to understand what Christmas was and she even left a beer for Santa and some carrots for the reindeer. Only a few days ago she was talking to me about Christmas and saying that we have to go and buy another tree.
Yes, it may seem a bit early to be thinking about Christmas (although how on earth is it June already?!) but with the Target Toy Sale starting next Wednesday 26th June, it’s the perfect time to start looking at presents!
