My kids never know what they want, and anything I want is too expensive for them to buy

yeah my kid never really wants anything
I've got her a ticket to the English National Ballet, a new 3DS game and a dress, along with some small novelty items

I'll just dish out some bits and bobs and cash I suppose

mine's not old enough to need cash yet
we started a spreadsheet of pocket money a while ago, it's about a couple of hundred quid now because she's never spent anything

She'll spend it before long, my daughter did say she needs some new jeans , so cash it is then

she's accrued more pocket money at the age of 9 than I received in my entire childhood

Biggie doesn't believe in father christmas, easter bunny, anything like that
until one of his fucking teeth fall out. Amazing how easily his belief system alters when there's cash involved

I held off letting my lot watch Gremlins, this Halloween,
lest the "father in the chimney" story ruin the Christmas magic.
Come Christmas Eve, when I'll be wrapping the stocking fillers, I shall rue this decision.

Both of mine figured it out when they were quite small
They still pretend for the sake of their cousins, which is very considerate, I think.

You're raising them right. I'm not convinced that any but my youngest still believe,
but the other two are keeping mum so as to keep the presents coming.

What's Tupac's take on this?

He's pretty quiet on the subject.
This is the case for pretty much all subjects tbh

He'll have a new album out for Christmas.

"spreadsheet of pocket money"?
And I thought I was the resident Excel sadsack.
