Tomorrow saint Nikolaichik will come to my child. The son already buzzed all his ears about what was going to find a gift under the pillow in the morning.
I had to look for the gift in advance. Firstly, due to the fact that I can simply not spend time on the money by the end of the week. And secondly – now there are problems with electricity throughout the city, and you need to have time to run to the ATM and withdraw cash until the card is left somewhere in the bottomless depths of a soulless machine, which has been cut off.
The same problem and, in fact, with the shops. In the twilight, under the watchful eye of the strict guards, there is no mood at all to wander around the windows and look out for a suitable gift.
Separately, I will say about the gift. Personally, I would have limited myself to a chocolate bar or a big chocolate hare (or Santa Claus is not important). Because my budget does not allow to overspend. My son’s toys are so full, especially since I won’t skimp on the New Year’s gift – he has been booked in advance by a child (all that remains is to save money).
But, my mother was too insistent (yes, I went shopping with her, because she herself was bored). I had to sigh, but still throw an extra dollar on a big jumper with a built-in flashlight and a Rubik’s cube. The son wanted him for a long time – he saw one of the children in the garden.
Now this whole business is safely hidden high in the bowels of the closet, so that even with all his desire the son did not find anything ahead of time. I understand that toys in half an hour (after a long study) will be abandoned, but – let the child rejoice. Each of us loves pleasant surprises and surprises.

On this occasion, even the parent meeting was. They decided to throw off and buy each child for a large chocolate egg, and purchase toys for the rest of the funds. I think this is really the best option. At least, everyone is the same – there will be no fights, quarrels and tantrums.
And last year, the parent committee did wrong and ugly – tore the money and dispose of it without our knowledge. It turned out that I passed two dollars, hoping that with this money my son would receive a normal gift. For example, a New Year’s set of sweets or a toy (you can really try and find a decent machine or a robot for such a sum).
As a result, the children were given unhappy key chains, the value of which does not exceed 50 cents, and the rest of the money bought toys for the whole group. No, I do not argue that toys are needed, but they would all be handed over separately. And so, it turns out, for my money, which should be spent on MY son, some other child will break a machine or a doll that they bought for the whole group.
Moreover, the three-year-old child was presented with a key ring in the form of COMPASS. Explain why? But not for every adult such a gift would be useful, what to say about the child. Moreover, not having had time to leave the garden, this compass had already been disassembled, and the chain of the keychain was torn apart. In general, there was only one wrapper left from the gift. Ugly turned out.
Fortunately, this year we are in another group, and all these questions were agreed and unanimously approved and taken into account. On the toys passed separately for gifts – separately.
Now our only problem is cold. The son began to cough yesterday. The course has already gone potions and rubbing. There is no temperature – I am going to lead to the garden. I think nothing serious will happen.
And how do you prepare for the day of St. Nicholas? Congratulations kids? And how do you solve questions with congratulations in the garden?
