31 Days of Preparing for Baby, Day 31
Day 31: Presents for kids and helpers
I read this somewhere. Getting a baby doll for your kid and give it to them when new baby arrives. My daughter has too many dolls and toys (thanks to garage sales).
But the more I think about it, I do think it is a good idea. When I'm taking care of new baby brother, she can take care of her new baby doll.
This is going to be a big day in her life, and I like giving her a gift as a form of celebration. (Gift giving is my love language, and I think it's hers too.) I've got a good idea for which doll she will get the day we bring baby brother home.
It would be nice to have small gifts on hand when others drop by and help you out. You could make some lotion bars or soaps to hand out as a small thank you gift.
