For this Tweetpeat Tuesday I have to share something with you. Primarily, my daughter’s Christmas list.
And the thing, too, is she asked for completely ridiculous items. I’m not even talking about the trampoline or mini fridge she put on the list. The Kid put candy on the list. One month after Halloween. She hasn’t even finished her trick-or-treating stash yet.
To give you a true sense of how much candy this whittled-down stash is, it just fit into a Costco-size Welch’s Fruit Snack box where I am now storing it because it’s the largest container I have. It holds a net weight of 4.5 pounds according to the package. Note The Kid still has a FULL size Hersey’s bar, FULL size Three Musketeers bar, a lifetime supply of Gummy Life Savers and a whole box filled with 40 pieces of Haunted Graveyard Creepy Candies. She wants more?
Some other items remained although they could have been nixed, but I didn’t want to be a total kill joy at the happiest time of year. She got the list is down to two pages.
This is 1 through 24 out of fifty. As you can see the list is very wide-ranging and diversified, which is nice because it provides me an array of price points to choose from. Maybe I’ll just stick with the colored pens, stickers and duct tape. I do have five other members of the family to provide for as my son recently noted.
What insane requests or absurd items are on your kids’ Christmas lists? I’d love to hear it.
