TGI Friday Open Thread: What Do You Really Want For Christmas?

183855980Parents are usually so busy worrying about the perfect gifts to buy people and when it comes time for mom or dad to open up their gift a lot of the time they get something dumb they don’t even want. Okay, that isn’t ALWAYS the case but I have heard some horror stories about people who have ended up getting a blender or a scale for Christmas when it wasn’t even on their list. So this open thread is dedicated to the WORST gift you have ever received plus the one gift you want more than anything. No, I don’t want to hear any sob stories about how you don’t want anything for YOU and that all you wants is everyone happy and healthy – don’t give me that martyr BS! Haha. I wanna hear all about what you would really like.

My list is always the same every year. I like new pajamas, I like salted caramels, and I LOVE getting a super cool or weird Christmas ornament. I love new makeup or perfume and cookbooks and unusual jewelry and scarves. I also love interesting serving pieces. Woohoo. Wow that all sounds boring.

 

I asked some of the Mommyish staff what they wanted and here’s what they had to say:

 Bethany wants: a massage, but my husband says that I want a new mom car with lots of room, i.e. minivan. I would rather die than drive a minivan.

Carrie wants: money to move. rugs for when i move. curtains for when i move. And a really good nice purse.

Julia wants: A sexy backpack. A leather one.

Maria wants: a trip to NYC. Kid-free.

Meghan wants sleep.

WHICH IS THE WORST ANSWER EVER. But I guess considering she has a new baby it makes sense.

So tell us what you want for Christmas and the worst give you ever received!

Also, I need to know what you guys have been up to and if you are drunk and what you are having for dinner and if you have put up your tree yet. You know, the important stuff.

      This year I have been fortunate enough to not need or want anything that could be easily purchased (I mean my school loans paid off would be ideal – but I know that’s not happening, so I don’t even bother) and i hate nick-nacks, so when my boyfriend just asked me I told him to make a charitable donation to a homeless youth center in my name, that’s what I truly want. If anyone on here lives in Ontario and is particular to any please chime in! Worst present ever – a used blanket from my ex’s grandparents.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        Ya know, I think you should change your gift idea, haha. I AM GOING TO GET IN YOUR BUSINESS. I think instead of making a donation you should call them up, and ask them what THEY NEED, like can you bring mittens or scarves for the teens? Cookies? do they have a DVD player? then I think you two should make some boxes up and drive over there and do it together, because they say (BY they I mean whoever conducts those studies) that “experience gifts” mean the most to people. and then you could see someone made happy by dropping of a box or two, and you guys will have a memory :)

      • Véronique Houde

        Donate to Kid’s Help Phone!!! We’re in dire need of money – we’re too busy and are always needing more funding to hire new counselors!! :)

    • libraryofbird

      I want a nice toilet paper holder for the bathroom. Or a ceiling fan. The worst gift I have ever gotten was a pad of paper that I’m pretty sure had already been used.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I think wanting for a toilet paper holder has to be the saddest gift request ever. You best get your dream amazing perfect one too dammit

    • Snarktopus

      I technically already got my present since we just rolled three celebrations into one to justify getting me a tablet so I can internet while the hubband plays games, but if I had to make a list, I would want a garlic press and some metal measuring spoons. Maybe a stock pot. I’m boring, deal with it. Worst gift I’ve ever gotten was underwear. From my in-laws. It was weiiiiird.

      • Julia Sonenshein

        I can’t even imagine the awkwardness of that gift exchange!

      • Natasha B

        My above Middle Aged, single, maiden aunt gave MY hubby red silk boxers for Christmas last year. I still haven’t recovered.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        HAHAHAHAHAHA

      • gothicgaelicgirl

        my mother bought my fella a Borat style mankini for a laugh.
        His face was priceless as he unwrapped it.
        I think my mam is a legend.

    • Bethany Ramos

      Yes! My aching back… I can’t think of a specific bad gift, but my dad always gave us free promo stuff like pens and t-shirts with dentist logos on them. Blech. I’m also drinking and watching Dr. Phil, as is my afternoon ritual!

    • LadyClodia

      The worst/weirdest gift I ever received was from my step-family. It was a seated plush bear with a dress on and the bottom had been dipped in perfumed wax. That was a decade ago, and it’s long-gone, but I still have no idea what the purpose of it was.
      I want a Coach purse for Christmas this year.
      We’re supposed to get quite a bit of snow/ice tonight, so that’s kind of icky. I also still need to finish getting stuff ready for my son’s birthday party on Sunday. He turned 5 on Wednesday, but we’re having a party for him at the kids’ gym for his preschool friends. I’m not too worried about it; mostly I just need to finish (start) the goodie bags, and buy some snacks for the parents. I’m just glad that it’s not at our house, and the gym staff will handle pretty much everything.
      We had a guy here to help us design our new kitchen today (yay,) and my husband wanted to check something in the ceiling above one of the cabinets. So now I have a cabinet off of the wall in the middle of my tiny kitchen, and all of the stuff that was in it is on my stove, along with plaster dust. I have no idea what I’m making for dinner tonight. *sigh*

    • alice

      i asked for a treadmill. with at least 3.0HP, 60″ belt, and 15^ incline.

      ahhh just think of how much laundry that puppy can hold…

      • LadyClodia

        We just got a recumbent bike exerciser. It made a nice coat rack for when my dad visited the other day.

      • Kay_Sue

        I have heard that they make the absolute *best* drying racks.

    • Cee

      I want a spa day.. Massage, facial, get marinated in muds and oils or whatever.
      A new job with a boss that didnt make my trainer cry… TWICE on my first week… And a Dr Pepper chapstick

    • Emmali Lucia

      A boyfriend.

      That’s both exactly what I want and the worst Christmas gift I’ve ever gotten.

      • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

        Did you change your name, or did someone steal your picture and I’m hallucinating?

      • Bunny Lucia

        I might have changed my user name…

        Because I may bitch about my family a little too much and I really don’t want them to find what I say about them. Haha

      • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

        I had to too (a long time ago) because I say occasionally bitchy things about being a teacher and I don’t want to ever be found out and fired because I’m not Sister-Mary-Sunshine Rainbows Flying Out My Ass All the Time. This way I can say whatever the hell I want, and I do :)

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I would be thrilled if you were my kid’s teacher

      • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

        Awwww. Thanks! I bet your kids are seriously badass, so they’d be fun.

    • http://www.twitter.com/ohladyjayne allisonjayne

      In order of “could actually happen” to “keep dreamin’ lady”:
      1. New bedspread
      2. Sewing machine
      3. Blue dinosaur tattoo
      4. Teal Bobbin (it’s a brand) bicycle
      5. New laptop because ours is from 2006 and is totally on the brink of death.
      6. Tuition for 4 years of university so I can be a midwife
      7. Enough time and energy to do everything I want

      • kay

        I’ve long said if I ever got a tattoo it would be a dinosaur. Because dinosaurs are awesome. And they won’t stop being awesome a year after you get one tattooed on you like asian words you don’t know, tribal arm bands, or the mustache on the finger thing.

      • Kay_Sue

        Dinosaurs will never lose their awesomeness. It is known.

      • gothicgaelicgirl

        kudos on the dino!! =)
        when we get preggers I’m totally flying you out for an irish homebirth. =)
        we can swap tattoo stories!

    • kay

      I want a wet nurse so that I can drink more without getting the baby drunk.

      • Emmali Lucia

        But isn’t that the best way to get baby to sleep through the night? Hahaha

      • Kay_Sue

        It also helps with teething. Right?

    • Kara

      I was 17, and my mother got me a farting doll. As in, this guy was bent over and his ass was hanging out of his pants and he made farting noises. Thanks mom.

    • kay

      Oh and as far as worst gifts go last year my brother gave my husband a dead bird. Wrapped it up, put it under the tree. A DEAD BIRD.

      (it wasn’t at our house so it was actually awesome, but “dead bird” is a terrible gift overall)

      • Bethany Ramos

        Hahahaha like Dumb and Dumber???

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I NEED TO KNOW THE CONTEXT OF THIS

    • Jessica

      Worst gift ever: When I was visiting my in-laws for Christmas and there was a little box under the tree for my MIL. Inside was a card that said “Look in the garage.” Everyone was super excited, and ran with her to check out her gift, only to find my FIL bought her an electric snow blower so my 4’11” MIL would have an easier time clearing the driveway.

      • alice

        hahaha omg. that’s horriblarious.

      • gothicgaelicgirl

        thank you for that new word.
        I am now going to use it all the time and confuse the shit out of my kids. =P

      • Natasha B

        Ohhhh nooooo!!! Hahaha!!!! Are they still married???

    • Beanie

      I have been telling people since before my birthday (October) that I want space bags and storage containers. But all I hear is those are too practical. Erggg!! Seriously. I just want to organize my life and this is what I would buy if I had extra money so why not just give it to me as a gift! I don’t need more lotion. /rant over

      • Kay_Sue

        This is what my husband said when I requested a nice vacuum for my birthday one year. I was like, “What is a better gift than having to spend less time and energy on this thing that I hate doing?”

      • EX

        I totally asked for space bags too. People always say I’m hard to shop for because I’m too practical but I don’t understand what’s wrong with practical gifts if that’s what someone wants! I got my husband a new garbage can for the kitchen for his birthday one year. Everyone thought that was really weird but he was always complaining about our old one so… And it was a nice garbage can!

    • chickadee

      I think the worst gift I ever got was when I asked my husband for a BMW convertible and he bought me a Range Rover. Like we needed another one!

      Actually, the worst gift I ever got was a stiff, vinyl, college-logo-branded shower curtain from my first mother-in-law. My ex loved it. It was hideous.

      The shower curtain I would actually like? A TARDIS one. And I would like a beautiful, classic trenchcoat.

    • Tea

      Worst: I still feel really bad about this, and I treasure it now, but since there were a zillion kids in the family, they did a secret Santa with the adults buying for one kid each. That year, my great aunt and uncle gave me socks, and a carved statue of Mr. Peanut. I was 8. I tried my best to be a good sport, but all of my cousins had toys, and I kind of broke down crying while saying thank you. I wanted to be mature and polite (No, really, I did, it was playing through my head that I would be mature about this and thank them and damn it I would appreciate my Mr. Peanut like an adult!) but my cousin got a Micro Machines in that fold-up van play set and I got Mr. Peanut, and I cried. I still feel kind of bad about it.

      Best: I got wasn’t actually for me, or a gift, but it was on my Christmas visitation with dad and ex-stepmom. It was my dad announcing, on the car ride there, that he’d just adopted 8 rats and they all lived in my bedroom in a giant rat play land.

      I Want: a minor but not entirely catastrophic vehicle failure to happen so that I can avoid going home for Christmas. Or more art supplies. Or a drama-free visit.

      Drunk: Yes, on chocolate vodka with marshmallows in it.

      • chickadee

        I can’t think of anything to go with socks that is more perfectly random than a carved statue of Mr. Peanut. And I have my second Sam Adams Winter Lager.

      • Kay_Sue

        Chocolate vodka with marshmallows is an option? Where do I find this nectar of the gods?

        I did the oven thing, but with a crockpot once. There’s nothing worse than that feeling. But I think chocolate vodka with marshmallows would be a helluva substitute.

      • Tea

        Recipe Time.

        Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Crap chocolate is fine, the wax actually gives it a nice sheen. Don’t use stuff you can’t stand the flavor of, but texture is not an issue. I used Hershey dark Bars. I also find that high-content chocolate can be a little more fickle to melt and clump easier.

        Get a whisk, reduce heat to a simmer in the double boiler, add vodka and whisk like mad. It’ll seize a bit at first, but loosen up and go silky after a few more seconds. Add water, or high-fat dairy to dilute if it’s too punchy, low fat dairy curdles too easily. Almond milk is fine, too. Add a pinch of salt, and a dash of vanilla extract.

        Optional add-ins:

        Cinnamon

        Candy cane pieces

        If you don’t add dairy, it will keep for months in a sealed bottle, but sometimes needs a stir and a spash of vodka or else it gets syrupy (At this point, it makes an amazing adults only fondue)

        Cram a small teacup with marshmallows, or cut some up and put them in a shot glass, add still hot choco-vodka. Enjoy!

      • Kay_Sue

        Is this an inappropriate place to confess my love for a stranger on the internet? Cuz yeah.

      • Tea

        I get that a lot when I share that recipe. It changed my life, and my pants size.

      • Emmali Lucia

        Then don’t go?

        Just say “OH SHIT. Something came up!”

        Remember what Maria said;
        You’re an adult now, you don’t have to spend time with people you don’t want to spend time with. No one can force you to do it.

      • Tea

        They have promised to be nice, and my husband hasn’t seen his sister (who is awesome but in the Navy and hard to pin down) in years, and he’s really looking forward to seeing her and being home for the holidays again. We have back-up plans for if anything goes down, but I’m still waiting for a fight to go down.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I am all sad thinking about little Tea trying to make a brave face when confronted with Mr. peanut and not being able to and awwwwwwwww

    • ToninaMDC

      Worst present I ever got? Canned goods. Yikes.

      What I’d really like for Christmas this year? I’d love a $1000 Amazon gift card so I could buy all the ebooks and movies/TV series on DVD/BD that I’ve been drooling over for years. Another great option would be a top-of-the-line pair of active noise cancelling headphones, so I could watch said movies and TV shows at night without waking my 7YO, the extremely light sleeper.

      • Jallun-Keatres

        LOL I’ll take your canned goods!

      • ToninaMDC

        Canned goods are certainly nice, useful things; however, in my book a holiday bag of canned green beans and chickpeas leaves something to be desired as a Christmas gift. :)

    • Rachel Sea

      The worst gift I ever got was the book Victorian Homes, which my mother bought me 5 Christmases in a row.

      What I want for Christmas more than anything is a dumpster, and 5 people to come help me clean out, and organize my garage, and build in a storage bench and standing desk in my library. I’m sick to death of the clutter, and I just want all the stuff that we will never use again to be gone. I don’t want to add a single other piece of stuff to my house unless it is completely functional, attractive, and replaces some other piece of shit that I hate looking at.

    • Jallun-Keatres

      I want a knife set so I don’t have to cut a spaghetti squash with a 3 inch not-butter-knife anymore. Also a new set of measuring cups, a baby swing, a baby sling, and a stocked pantry. Oh, throw in my lady business being healed from Mini-Keatres’ grand escape. :P

      I really don’t have a worst Christmas gift so here are the BEST:

      Age 4 or 5: my uncle got my sister and me baby doll strollers and my parents had to pause gift unwrapping for hours while we wore a track into the living room carpet pushing stuffed animals in laps around the couch.

      Age 12: a cat. We found a stray in our yard 3 months prior to Christmas and had bonded with her so much that my dad finally caved in and allowed her to enter our home, where she was all mine for 11.5 years until she died. And yes, it’s the glowy eyed cat in my avatar pic. Her name was Eenie. :3

      • Bethany Ramos

        You can lose a finger from that! Spaghetti squash is no joke.

    • Kay_Sue

      I want a blender.

      I want a blender because I want a strawberry daiquiri right now, and as I do not currently own a blender, and I am currently out of Dailey’s, I cannot have one. Alas.

      The worst gift I ever received was…a paper napkin shaped into a flower. This is not a joke. My son’s biological father actually gave me that when we were trying to work things out between us. I’m not saying that’s the reason that relationship failed, but it certainly did not help. It was not a Christmas gift…it was a Mother’s Day gift…but still.

      I am not drunk (see Dailey’s/ Blender comment and thank you for rubbing it in :-P), I have not put up my tree yet because that means getting that G-D elf out of storage also and I am not ready to commit yet (not to mention after the STFUP column today, I am a wee bit frightened to), and my kids are having McDonalds for dinner (so sue me!) on the way to Nanny’s house for the night so I can get up in the morning and prep for a birthday party involving 8 to 10 kids ages 6 to 8. Yay me!

      Someone send me a blender…

      • Jallun-Keatres

        OMG I wanted a blender so bad I put one on my wedding registry and was beyond thrilled to GET it!! It’s been a year and a half and I still haven’t used it yet… lol

      • Kay_Sue

        We forewent a wedding register. “We’ve lived together for three years,” we said.

        “There’s nothing we really need,” we said.

        We were dumb, and I had no idea what we needed in a kitchen because at the time, I did not cook, and i thought a blender would just take up space anyway. But now, I have literally a folder of various recipes that require a blender, and I am hoping that someone comes through for me this Christmas, lol.

      • Jallun-Keatres

        Yes, we still don’t have about half of what a modestly stocked kitchen has. I’m just glad my parents gave us a bunch of extra things they had to help.

        Sending you blender vibes! :P

    • Blueathena623

      The gift I’m getting for myself — some really outrageously expensive($89) face cream. I’m not big on spending money on frou frou stuff and I’m awful about using all of a product up, so I’m nervous about this, but it feels so exciting! I’m living on the edge!

      Best gift and gift I want again — when I was 8 I got an electric holly hobby toothbrush set. I loved it. My little sister saw how much I loved it, so she wrapped it up and gave it to me again on my birthday. And then Christmas. And my birthday again. And Christmas. You get the idea. I’m not sure what happened to it, but my not little anymore sister says that she scans eBay occasionally hoping to find one. If she ever finds one to give to me, my heart may burst.

      • Natasha B

        Oooo what face cream???? I’ve been dying to buy a ridic one but haven’t got the nerve yet

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I wanna know this too. I usually use Philosophy hope in a jar but I wanna try something new

      • Blueathena623

        http://www.sephora.com/black-tea-age-delay-cream-P217512

        See if you can get a sample first (that’s how I found out about it) because it smells weird. I love the smell, but its a weird smell, kinda like dirt. I still haven’t ordered it yet because I keep second-guessing myself.

    • Julia Sonenshein

      A very well meaning family friend in her 80s got me a 30 rack of cheap beer, which I could not enjoy because I was eight years old. My idiot parents gave it away. Merry Christmas to me.

    • Ddaisy

      The best gift I could get this year would be a new duvet cover and sheets. Because the worst gift I’ve got in recent history was when I arrived in Korea, my employer provided a big box of household items to get my apartment set up. That was really great, but… the bedding is a bright hideous orangey tomato red. And the apartment is one room and TINY so literally the entire apartment is cast in an eye-burning red glow. Why would anyone even manufacture bedding in this colour???
      So my mission before Christmas is to find myself a really pretty, not-too-expensive duvet cover. Preferably in a soothing shade of light pink or baby blue to match the rest of my stuff, but anything is better than fire truck red. I’ve been told that sheets are hard to find in Korea, but… Koreans must sleep on something, right? I’m determined.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I wanna see your place you guys who live in interesting cities all need to start showing us!

      • Ddaisy

        Here are my godawful red sheets with my supercute pink accessories. And just so you can live vicariously through me, here’s a pic I took while Christmas shopping in Seoul this afternoon :)

      • Jallun-Keatres

        LOL I was thinking “red can’t be that bad” but… omg… so much red… wow…

      • Simone

        MY EYES!!!!

    • Natasha B

      Worst present I ever got? A stolen camera. Yep. From my ex, maaaany years ago. I opened it up and was like wow a digital camera zomg! And then….why are there pictures on here? Of other people? We didn’t last long.
      I really want a spa day and massage for Christmas. Or sparkly things. And a Serger, preferably a Bernina.
      Sadly sober. Apparently it’s frowned on to throw back shots when your growing a human?
      Our tree is up….it’s my fav tradition. We cut it down and everything :) the 18mo has only destroyed 3 heirloom ornaments so far.
      Hubs came home early and made pho for dinner mmmmnnn. The kids are entranced in Word World so I get the iPad all. To. Myslffffff

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        does he make his pho with tripe or without? I need to know these things

      • Natasha B

        Last night he made it without-we had chicken and beef in it. Rarely do we use tripe, usually only if his mom makes it ;)

    • Justme

      What I really want for Christmas is my front office/study to be finished. We are (and have been) in the process of repurposing rooms in our downstairs since we are a) pretty sure we’re staying put for the foreseeable future and b) not going to have anymore children. We have a gorgeous two story open and airy front room with lots of windows that was our formal dining room…but since we never use our formal dining room and my husband’s baseball card business was taking over my kitchen and living room, we really needed an office/study.

      So. Long story short – we have a desk, some shelves and our old glider from my daughter’s nursery. The walls are green and I would like them to be gray. I’d like some curtains and a bookshelf. A side table and a lamp. Some organization boxes and a throw blanket.

      Long list that makes me seem a little spoiled, right? I’m not asking for all of it because that would be ridiculous…but it’s more than just the STUFF to put in the room, I want that space to be finished so that we can enjoy it as a family. So that my husband can work on his baseball cards, I can sit, read and drink a glass of wine and our daughter can play on the floor with her toys. We need a space where there isn’t a television blaring and we can just be quiet in the same room.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I wanna see pics of this room BADLY.

      • Justme

        See? It needs a new color on the walls, some curtains…and probably some presents under that tree, I suppose…

        ETA: I am sorry there are three of the same pictures. I’m doing this all via iPad – makes it a little more difficult.

    • Dooby dooby doo

      Worst: A basket of homemade goodies from a family member including breads, cookies, sausages, cheeses, etc. all of which had either molded, become rancid or could be used to hammer nails. Some of that stuff was so stout I think it drove us home that night.
      Best: A clay ornament that Large Fry made for me at school. He worked so hard on it and it’s one of a handful of things I’ll never get rid of.
      My tree is up, my lights are up, I didn’t cook (Burger King for the win!) and I seriously want to try the chocolate vodka like yesterday. I don’t partake much anymore but I miss it so.

    • tSubh Dearg

      My first year in university, my “cool” aunt bought me a “One Night Stand Kit” from Anne Summers (who sell lingerie and sex toys) which contained a toothbrush, a clean thong (which is not my top choice of underwear), condoms and something else I can’t remember. I opened it and quickly hid it under a jumper. I have never been more mortified in my entire life, I just wanted to ground to open and swallow me whole. I did manage to choke out a thank you while blushing furiously.

    • Ptownsteveschick

      I want a hotel with room service and an inroom massage and fireplace with an ocean view. All alone so I can knit and watch netflix and have food brought to be and not have to clean up after myself. And I want to be all by myself while I do it.

      • Simone

        I hear you. Sooo much. I would like the identical room next to yours and we will not communicate in any way.

    • EmmaFromÉire

      I would love a weekend away with my boyfriend. College has seriously burnt me out, and there’s building going on in my home so we have no heating. I just need to get away for a bit! Actually scratch that, I want a few nights on my own, with spa treatment, and a few nights with my boyfriend. I love him but I love my own company too!

    • Véronique Houde

      I WANT A CELL PHONE!! I gave mine up when I went on mat leave, and now that I’m back to work, I’m terribly bored because my bosses won’t let me do the fun chat therapy and booo I can’t read my ebooks online because my stupid work computer doesn’t have adobe and I can’t install it because I’m not the admin and I can’t stream any shows and I’m soooooo boooooooooored. If I had a cell phone I could do anything damn thing I want. Or at least get me an eReader.
      TBH I don’t think I’ve ever really had a crappy Christmas gift because my parents always went on what we wrote on our lists so we were very rarely disappointed. But what I hate is when people just buy you random gifty stuff like soap (unless it’s a kickass brand you love) just because they want to give you something and don’t know what to buy. I honestly would rather you just have me over for a nice dinner or get a really nice bottle of wine if you’re my guest – or buy me a drink when we go out because I have no room in my small one bedroom apartment for random soaps that I will most likely not use any time soon.

        Yeah my sister has a collection of soaps, body washes, stuffed animals, and other crap like that because everyone wants to give her stuff and what do you buy for a disabled adult??

        Seriously, give her crayons. Or a coloring book. Or Japanese Kanji workbook pages. Or a 5 cent notebook. She loves busy work. She does not love 100 bottles of some teen-scented body wash or yet another candle with a cheesy sentiment on it.

      I asked for my partner to consider having a child with me. =P
      Will let you know how that goes Christmas Morning!!

      Best I ever got was the very first Christmas card my beautiful kids got me, that said to our Mommy on Christmas. the little one said- I know you’re our stepmammy but (and here she did an eye roll so impressive it would’ve made a fish envious) *eyeroll* you’re LIKE our mommy, so thats ok.

      I cried. =)

      the oddest was definitely a toothbrush and toothpaste set from my great granny. she always sent them to us lol i reckon it was a subtle hint to stop eating sweets.

      I WANT: A baba! a little hairy scary baby. then again knowing me and my partner, the child will emerge with a full beard, tattoos and piercings.
      And it will be epic. =)
