So, those calendars...

Shall we see if anyone got close with their guesses? ;)


OK, so this is how they go:

The Star Wars Lego calendar is an extra-special, one-off treat for The Boy and The Tomboy to share. (Gosh, I can just imagine the trouble it would cause if one child got a calendar like that and the other didn't!! They happily negotiated opening alternate days and so far it's working well!)

The Doctor Who paper calendar came with The Boy's copy of Doctor Who Adventures. (The Tomboy gets Pokemon World - she didn't get a calendar with that.)

The chocolate Doctor Who calendar is also The Boy's; the chocolate Super Mario one is The Tomboy's (as chosen by The Children themselves).

The chocolate Smurf calendar is The Doctor's (as chosen by The Children themselves....)

However, here's the twist! Last year The Doctor expressed disappointment that I had a Cadbury's calendar and he didn't, so when I got mine and it happened to be on offer I picked up an extra one for him. Mine's the one with Rudolf wrapped in lights and his has the Christmas tree on it. Since he had that one, we gave the Smurfs one to The Children as an extra so the child who doesn't get to open the Lego calendar can have an extra chocolate instead. (But only after he'd unwrapped it as part of his birthday present, as per our tradition for his birthday!)

Phew!

(If anyone had actually guessed that lot they would have earnt a mega prize lol!)

Oh dear... Well, I'm glad You know whose is which is what... (!)

I can't even find my advent calendar. I'm sad about that, as I love it. It'll probably turn up two days before Christmas...
Maybe I should get a choccy one instead!

How long does it take you to open all those every day??

My kids share the Lego calendars every year. Until last year there was only one kind available here in the US and I refuse to buy two now just because two are available. :) They swap days opening it with days picking the holiday book.
