Breakfast – let the day begin. Check out the girl’s pyjamas.
I think the girl’s done the advanced present unwrapping course, not so the boy.
See how he ignores his gifts and goes straight for her pile?!
Let there be light – his favourite.
You can’t go wrong with a book. Especially if you’re still in pyjamas.
No honestly daddy, I am really am a gift.
What real men do before opening a nappy.
She does like a toy with lots of different bits to it. You’ll notice that she’s quite fond of those pyjamas too.
The girl, you’re never going to be able to take a boy’s temperature while he’s playing cars. Learn this lesson now and you won’t go far wrong in life.
Back to old favourites for a while.
Mummy’s knees after the boy’s mid-morning snack – every day, not just Christmas!
I can see a clear winner emerging for the girl on the gift front.
I’ve had enough now. Please can I go to bed?
Mmmm, lunch. Thanks the husband, it was lovely. Still in your pyjamas the girl?
Right, the kids are down for their afternoon nap and we’ve done the washing up. What’s on telly?
Keeping the boy happy while he waits for his tea – good old TV.
See? I told you that you can’t go wrong with a book (and pyjamas, of course).
More food – well, it is Christmas Day – got to keep those tummies full.
Practising for later (and you haven’t seen me yet so I thought it was about time).
Mmm, shiny. A USB lava lamp.
Well done the girl. If you can’t beat them, join them. And always stick to your guns on the pyjama frontl.
Eventually you may even enjoy it enough to play on your own.
Watch out Dr House – your job is most definitely in danger. A clear winner for the “favourite gift” category, oh, and the “favourite pyjamas” category.
Still trying to fix people, regardless of whether they want to be fixed or not.
No mummy, I don’t need a bath. I’ll just hop into bed. What do you mean it’s not my bed?
Sorry the boy, it’s bath time.
Teeth cleaning – if only they really were and not just posing for mummy (but look, we managed to prise the pyjamas off the girl).
I’m a celebrity, get me out of here. Now.
Nighty night, the boy. Merry Christmas.
Nighty night, the girl. Merry Christmas. Yes, the pyjamas are back on.
Mission accomplished – Christmas Day with two small children carried off without incident. Merry Christmas one and all!
