My 6 year old son is desperate for a PlayStation for Christmas.
Hubby and I have talked about it and, as he’s only 6 and we bought a Wii last year and mummy wants to have some money left over to, you know, eat, we decided to buy a PlayStation 2 second hand.
But then I got talking to a friend whose son has a PlayStation 3 and she said not to bother as you’ll end up buying the PlayStation 3 anyway and then you’ll want to upgrade all the games and it will end up costing you more in the long run etc etc etc blah blah blah.
And so, because I’m easily led and a bit of a coward, I figure I should let Dan make the decision.
Me: “If you prefer Dan, daddy and I could buy you a PlayStation 3 for Christmas but it would have to be your birthday AND your Christmas present together because it’s rather expensive.”
He looks at me thoroughly confused then says:
“What are you talking about? Santa makes all the Christmas presents, so it’s not going to cost you anything.”
