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. 


Sally is a full-time blogger and founder of the Tots100, Trips100, Foodies100 and HIBS100 communities, along with the MAD Blog Awards. She spends a bit too much time on the Internet. She's also a very happy Mum to Flea, the world's coolest ten year old.
