You know you’re a Mummy Blogger when…

Flea

You have this conversation with your six-year-old on the way home from school: 

 

Me: I need to stop at the letterbox on the way home to post these letters. 

Flea: Can we write a letter to the PR, Mummy? 

Me: Which PR?

Flea: You know, the one who sends us stuff. 

Me: Why do you want to send a letter to the PR? 

Flea: Because I want some Harry Potter Lego.

 

I think it's well past time for me and Flea to have bit of a chat about the concept of actually BUYING stuff.

    My two are just the same, they asked as I handed them some toys the other day;
    “Did you buy this or did you get it sent?”
    I told them I had brought them…

    I told her perhaps she could save up her pocket money or ask for it for Christmas! Talk about spoiled…

    I sometimes take the credit, too. Hey, I’m not above buying her love.

    My two are the same, I nearly always have a meltdown at the cinema when we go to the Kids AM screenings because they expect a goody bag and balloons afterwards…

    Can you imagine what a brilliant blogger your girlchild is going to grow up to be… She will know all the marketing ins and outs … first hand!!! Learnt when she is still ankle height… well knee height… well she just keeps on growing!!! Or you could move to our side of the world where most marketers have never heard of a blog let alone given something to a blog for feed back!!!

    Oh bless her, very funny and oh so true. The Boy has started to say “Where’s postman? Has he got parcel for me? Is it toys for me?” and I’m having a little panic about it! Starting to filter things through now, some get kept aside for later.
    Good one.

    Ha! The PR person (just one?) is the new Santa, I guess.

    It seems a common problem. I’ve only been blogging just over a year, and we haven’t had that much stuff to review yet, but every time I go out to work (which is 4 days a week) Catherine asks me if I’ve brought anything home for her when I get back home – she’s getting too used to goodie bags already!
    When I became a Craniac I made the mistake of letting her look through the John Crane catalogue with me, and she’s convinced now that she’s going to get everything that we put on the “would like to review” list. *sigh*

    My kids just think I wait for them to be funny so i can write about it.
    they now set up gags for me – they are not funny!
    Maybe I should introduce some free stuff!

    I’ve said it before… Flea’s a comedy genius.
    We don’t review enough stuff for the girls to have got this idea yet, but woe betide anyone who comes to stay with us and HASN’T brought a present…

    Yes, that’s quite an upside isn’t it? I did give loads of PR loot to Flea last Christmas. Bad Mummy.

    Oh yes, Flea now doesn’t really understand standing in line. She looks around for a PR to take us to the front of the queue!

    I’m slightly terrified by that prospect, though.

    It’s important not to let Flea get TOO spoiled I think but even in her experiences she’s been very lucky these past couple of years. Life of Riley, these kids have!
