I have a co-worker that put it to me like this....."I told my children(6 of them) that baby Jesus got 3 gifts, why do you think you should get more? WOW. Very appropriate. I have done this since having kiddos and it is fine for us.
For those of you who knit or crochet, Big Lots has had some beautiful yarn recently that was very inexpensive.
Re: something they want
somthing they need
something to wear
something to read
I've read about parents who interpret the "need" as good sports equipment for kids who show interest & aptitude, quality art supplies & lessons or musical instruments. It wouldn't have to be the equivalent of a new toothbrush or bar of soap to be a need.
For our kids, though, I'm kind of at a loss. I'd really, really like to get DS a Waldorf Doll for Christmas, to help him deal with the new baby. Plus, it would be awesome to make a teether for the New Baby and another doll for my friend's daughter. I know they can be made and I have "mad leet sewing skillz", but I'm kind of overwhelmed and don't know how to begin. Anyone want to post or PM me with tips?
