Dad shares his 10-year-old daughter's $10,000 Christmas list
One of my favorite childhood memories of Christmas would be sitting down one evening to write down my wish list. This would usually involve a cold Sunday evening after a bath, as I flicked through the Argos catalog and listed the product codes for the items I wanted.
Of course, even as a 10-year-old, I was somewhat aware of my family's financial limitations - often selecting one "main" present, and then a selection of cheaper gifts that I could happily live without.
However, one little girl who clearly has no idea how much her parents earn is the daughter of Twitter user @A_Johnson412.

Taking to Twitter to share his daughter's exuberant wish list, he wrote: "My 10 year old daughter must be out of her mind with this Christmas list [sic]"
He accompanied a picture of the list, which you can see below. Looks like Santa and his elves are going to have to take out another credit card this year...
The optimistic wish list includes 26 presents in total, including an iPhone 11, a "new" MacBook air, a Chanel purse, Gucci slides, a real pet rabbit, Apple Air Pods, a GoPro and - perhaps my favorite of all - item number 21, $4,000 (without any explanation about what the cash will be used for).
Unsurprisingly, Twitter erupted with responses to the little girl's list, and the reactions were (unlike this list) priceless.
"U have over a month to get every damn thing on this list. Nursing homes can get lonely", joked user @oneevpro.
Some Twitter users pointed out that this child was clearly raised to think like this. A Twitter user called Juliet replied: "You raised a bougie princess and now you wanna complain".
To which Twitter user @BabyyKayJayy replied: "Lmaoooo exactly like I would never have made a list like this, SIS was RAISED TO WRITE A LIST LIKE THAT"
But most people were able to see the funny side of the list. Whether it was because they could relate to the girl's demands, like @sassyoutlaw2019:
Or the fact they came after the child for her spelling choices, like @whitleygilbertx:
Twitter user @JasVela_ joked that the child needs to be gifted the alarm clock - as she needs to wake up from "that dream where she think shes getting everything on there [sic]".
Ryan Lehmeier echoed my appreciation of the cheeky $4,000 request:
And also @SahibBennett thought he had found a loophole by suggesting to the father that she can only have items she's spelled correctly...
...@mr_bcarter was quick to point out the flaw in his plan:
I don't know about you, but I could certainly do with some of this little girl's Christmas spirit right about now.
