It's her birthday & she's had some family stress

She doesn't like cakes or sweet stuff

I will do a card with her dc - but I was going to do a cake, but I can't now - so what could I make her (with her dc)?

Katy the only person that sews in our house is DH.

He bought me a sewing machine..............he learned to use it

In fairnes I used to but I have the excusethat my hands get verypainful now, and holding the fabric in place is hard for me.

That is mt excuse and Im sticking to it

Oh, I wish Katy would be my childminder!

Parents presents this year have been painted mugs. Bought the mugs from Tesco ("paint your own" kits) and got the children to put their handprints on them then wrote "made by...." and the date on the bottom. They've all loved them!! Mugs were on offer last time I went - £2.

Katymac · 02/10/2007 07:26

Mugs - great idea - but LO a bit small

I can be your childminder Chipmonkey, you just need to move - just to clarify it, was it your DC you want me to lok after.....or you?

chipmonkey · 02/10/2007 19:38

Me, definitely!

mogs0 · 02/10/2007 20:32

How old is LO? I've done handprints with 9 month old. It's bit messy but just as effective in "Mum's" eyes!!!!!
