I remember watching a clip once of someone (maybe Holly Willoughby? Maybe Grim… knows as I’m sure he knows enough to run her Wiki or something) saying that when she moved house they were doing renovations and the builders uncovered a box of three sets of kids teeth. Despite it being creepy and gross they sent them on to the forwarding address that the previous owner had left.

Talking to the neighbours some weeks later when the neighbours asked about the renovations, and they mentioned the teeth. The neighbours said ‘oh… but she never had children’ :D

Cue one christmas that was a total "hold the fucking phone!" moment, when we realised we were being stiffed by one half of the family as they never sent us a present.
The jig was up! The whole charade tumbled down that year.


Do you mean that you realised that the ‘Father Christmas’ grandparent never sent you anything, so explanations had to be made?


Exactly, trust was lost that day.

I have some of my kid's teeth, one of the dog's teeth, a random one that I think belonged to a cat, and some in an old jewellery box of unknown origin. Apparently keeping teeth is a thing in my family and I have no idea why.

I hope that you keep them all in the same box so that some future palaeontologist looking back to find what these weird human creatures were really like thinks that we had a really odd dental structure.

Do you know who it was? May have been Claudia Winkleman, perhaps. Or Fearne Cotton. It was a good while ago that I saw it.

Only reading back as far as Mimi's post about Claudia Winkelman, and then reading this, caused a most perplexing start of the day.

Hey kid, the tooth fairy isn't real and here's a box of your own teeth to prove it was all a lie. Now go to sleep.

Mrs Squirt is currently being an elf at a Grotto. She says a surprisingly large number of kids ask Santa for "a chocolate bar" or "some felt tips" or something. She was expecting a lot more ponies and Playstations.

That’s really interesting! I suppose for young children they are things that they are used to and they know that they enjoy them. Also, Mrs Squirt, The Elf! :) I hope she’s enjoying that job. It sounds fun.

Mine always ask for surprisingly mundane stuff, and at first I wondered if it was because I'd raised lovely little anti-capitalists but then I realised it's because they basically already have everything. :facepalm:

I'm going to wait until all our daughter's baby teeth have gone then present her with some nightmarish monster with human teeth I made out of modelling clay.

:DD :DD

Ours in the past have asked Santa for something incredibly specific (the "Spy Chase from Paw Patrol Charged up, the blue one with yellow details", or something like that) which then bothers Lady T as she had actually bought the 'explorer Chase from Paw Patrol Dino Charge, just in blue' much earlier in the year and held on to it ready for Christmas.

There have been a few last-minute dashes to the shops to make sure we didnt give them the wrong one >:|

We do most of the presents from us and from family, and Santa gives just a small number of comparatively little things. I think I prefer it that way, as at school there are a variety of different backgrounds there, some have really rich parents and others have much less - someone mentioned very similar in this thread earlier, it'd make me reallyy sad to think that any kid might end up feeling santa favours others more/less.
