part 1 - doing right thing.

part 2 - wierd, but now you know so perhaps a phone call to check.

nice that she's making an effort.

You could suggest she pop a note in for you to read to DS? Tell her how lovely it would be.

From experience the wrong age presents probably wont stop, so get some high shelves to store them till later, thats what we do!

honestly as your child gets older you will appreciate it more, there a lots of thread on here about how the 3+ thing can be more to do with licences etc, my ds plays with lots of age unsuitable toys as he has a big sister and they are hers

Just pack any dangerous stuff away till later, then one rainy day when dd wont stop whinging you have a stockpile off new things

My dad does things like post without notes, its just how he is, very scientific etc, would scribble something on a post it note if absolutely necessary
