Older boy got a Batman toy from Santa. He does loves superheroes but most toys are aimed at big kids but this particular range is aimed at toddlers. He was very excited and decided to ask super nerd Daddy to tell him all about it

The conversation went like this

kids Christmas party

**WARNING** this is not suitable for children

So (setting the scene), I took the boys to a kids Christmas party. The eldest child there was 6. We were playing party games before Santa came. The game I'm going to talk about is pass the parcel

As we all know, pass the parcel is an innocent game. The music plays-you pass the parcel around, when the music stops the person it lands on opens the parcel

Totally innocent until the parcel is wrapped in newspaper, well The Sun to be exact...

The music stops on Older boy. He eagerly opens the first layer, I help as he's not quite perfected his taking off one layer skills when the next layer reviles

Yes..page 3 of The Sun was the second layer of the pass the parcel wrapping.

NB. I took off another layer before letting the next child have it.

So, it's July and kids TV is being as seasonal as usual

So I get the question "Who's Santa?" We talk about it, I explain who he is and what he does. It's early but thanks to the TV we are ready and excited about Santa

Every time we see someone with a beard

Sigh. As time goes on it gets a bit more "creative"..

Then December comes, the Christmas decorations are up, when he suddenly decides...

He did go in, and tell Santa he wanted a bag for Nurse Flood (a Fireman Sam toy). And he demanded a refund when Santa gave him a book!

So, we were shopping

Daddy and Younger boy we shopping, me and Older boy were in the queue at the till. Behind us was a sweet girl, around 18 months old with her dad

Older boy says

So I agree when he then says

Again, I agree. He then says, pointing at her dad

Hoping they either haven't heard or the ground will open up, I explain that he has, he's just got clothes on so you can't see it. He then says
