Ooh - Love to! I haven't done this before (oy!) so help me out. I can do an ISO list, ya, but not too sure how to match up (or whether someone else does that for us?). Please pm me if you wouldn't mind helping me understand (duuuuuuh). Tnx

Hemp diaper inserts or doublers, esp. w/the fleece top, but hemparoo / joeybunz type would be great, too.
Wet bag for diapes on the road - largeish for at least 4 diapes.
cool pens/stamps/markers
pretty notepaper w/envelopes
celtic music
solid color cardigan in child size 7/8 (hanna 130)
a rototiller (dh MADE me put that in!)
Usborne chapter books (like Robin Hood or Codename Quicksilver)
essential oils (lav., jas., amber)
adult books on tape (any other nora roberts fans out there? )
Other kids books on tape (like Cornelia Funke's; again, copies on tape are fine, but not Harry Potter - got them all!)
interesting painting or coloring books for dd (we have totem poles and butterflies of the world)
med or lg. wool diaper wraps
Weleda diaper area cream or calendula cream
wind chimes (little ones pref.)
+1.25 reading glasses for dh (we can't have eNOUGH of those!)
Gymboree socks 3 - 12 months
hair barettes for dd (7yo)
Computer games for 1 - 3rd graders that work on Win XP (used is totally fine as long as it works)
Wheat-free recipes
a pouch for ds - like a kkfp or something but homemade is fine w/me!

that seems like lots to choose from. If you want more lmk.

Mama to B and O , wife to J and me to me! :
