I gave them gift certificates for an online organic shop, SaffronRouge.com. I was thinking about gift certificates to local businesses (like a spa or smth) but they live in different areas and it might not have been the most convenient thing for them. Online they can order anything they want.

LOL! I just hate to feel tied down, although this week i am watching her all week and weekend. her mom is my friend. You start at 5:30 am?!! wow, mama, when do you sleep?

I wanted to comment on this drop-off and pick-up situation - I've learned from my experience and am now witnessing the same problem with my friend who is also providing care at home. The parents think they pick up the child when they show up at your door, even if takes them 40...
I like Vistaprint too. I used them a few times for ordering magnets when they have discount offers. Everyone says the magnets are such a cool idea! (I tried both business card size magnets and the larger ones, with calendars).

You can also say just that - I am 37 years old and have been longing to be "just a mom" for all these years. If you say it in a feeling tone of voice, not defensive, but smth you say when you confide in someone, maybe she will feel it too and let you alone.
I don't have a neti pot for flushing my nose with salt water - I use a regular plastic basin (clean) - any kind you have in your house, as long as you can lower your whole face into it.
