But it surely doesn't have to be that way? What if we had an outrageous Mommy tantrum and said a big bad no to the Power Ranger duvets? Refused to allow the Teletubbie posters to grace our walls? Banished Barbie from the bedroom? I mean really- would we be compromising our childrens right to self-expression??
I suppose so; but dear vintage Mummy it is also our maternal duty to teach our children good taste. Am I right, or am I right?
So avoid the nightmare that is Toys R Us in the festive season and feel free to stuff their stockings with scrumptiousness from Baby Goes Vintage and rest assured that you are simply making the world a gentler place one Christmas present at a time.
There is no need to feel guilty...
