Has your child asked for anything embarrassing?

That ties in nicely with the "does your teenager believe in Santa?" thread.  If he was handing out sexy ladies we'd have a lot more believers among teenage boys.

That's too cute!!!

My DS asked for a snorkel and flippers.  Which is fine except we don't have a pool.  And live an hours drive from the beach.  It was just a tad random lol.

My nephew (3) said today that he was going to ask Santa for a chuggington and some naughty things. I had no idea what "naughty things" were and neither did his Mum. I'm not sure he ended up telling Santa anything though in all the excitement original.gif

Last year my son, 4 at the time, asked Santa for "Amy", much to Santa's dismay.  I had to explain Amy is Doctor Who's companion and DS wanted an action figure of her, not a person called Amy.

My daughter who is 4 asked Santa for her baby brother who just turned 1 to be able to walk as she is sick of him crawling everywhere! Little does she know that when he starts walking.......

Firstly, there is no mistaking my son for a girl. Santa said "would you like a barbie doll for xmas?"
Wtf!! I see nothing wrong with boys playing with dolls, but for him to say that was just weird......and a little creepy. My son just gave him a funny look.

#22 SDEE

My 4 year old asked for a Rhinoceros, (great, perhaps not) and then listed all the things he should bring her little sister (things she already has and that she is sick of her sister playing with)

Cut Santa some slack..

He had probably had 57 requests for Barbie in a row and thought he could cut strait to the chase.

I've been an elf working with Santa - you think you are having a 'long day' in the shopping centre... spare a thought for poor Santa.

8 hours of crying, screaming, wetting, pinching, and flash bulbs in your face - and all through it you have to remain 'kind, serene and jolly'.

3 yr old DD asked for a fishing wand. Santa was a little surprised but said he would see what the elves could do.
