Thank you so much for all the beautiful gift ideas for my sweet nephew. I loved reading all of them. You were all so thoughtful and it was a huge help.
Since I am crunched for time, and we're not made of money (yeah, I should have reminded myself of that one when Prissy turned one. DOH!), I decided on something simple and quick.
Not enough time to make something by hand (not that I make stuff - I'm not crafty - but I can put pictures and words together and stuff like that).
Whilst revisiting ToysRUs this evening, (left my license there yesterday when I made a return - I have no brain) I discovered something pretty cool. They have a section of books that are signed by the author. Picture books like "Guess How Much I Love You" that are autographed (real autographs - with a marker, not a copy - each is unique).
I love this. I would expect to pay a bit more for such items, but these are about the same price as the regular hardcover picture books at ToysRUs (which are admittedly a few more dollars than most places anyway).
For the new one-year-old, I chose a beautifully illustrated "Puff The Magic Dragon" complete with CD of children's songs and an autograph by Peter. Of Peter, Paul & Mary. Cool, huh?
Thank you all so much for your help - I felt so much less stressed after reading all your helpful comments.
Now... I should probably get back to returning comments from my SITS Day almost a week ago. I'm so behind.
Sanity or Patience: choose one.
Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?
