Hello dear watchers! I have some news and I need your help: my best friend is going to have a baby Sadly, I am moving away, so I won't get to play much of a part in her baby's life I'm still determined to be favourite aunt in some capacity, so here's my plan:
My friend (and her family) are not very big readers. They'll enjoy a good book if you give it to them and ask for more, but never actually put in the leg work to find a good book. I've been her library for the last decade and I know when it comes to baby gifts, people will be thinking clothes or the like, but I'm thinking books and something to get the imagination going. I want to compile a book of stories and I want to make it special by putting it together myself rather than going to a store and buying the first fairytale book I see and I was hoping I could get some suggestions from you guys: What was your favourite story growing up? It could be fairytales, stories from your culture, a movie plot! - anything you can remember that inspired you and fuelled your imagination.
If you have any other baby-gift suggestions, I'm very much open to hearing them. Perhaps I'll make a gift basket sort of thing as a congratulations-and-I'm-sorry-I'm-leaving-and-won't-be-around-to-babysit
So thats me. Tell me about you guys. What's new?
