Playing Catch-Up

We were out Saturday evening, so the Munchkin did not get to open yesterday's pocket until this morning - so we doubled up.

Boy - when I put this whole idea together I did not anticipate how hard it would be to come up with 28 little gifties without A) totally blowing the budget and B) totally spoiling the Munchkin. I don't want to do trains every day, and too much chocolate gets into other issues.

What's a Mom to do?

Today it was my hand-me-down bin that came to the rescue. The Munchkin just outgrew his carpenter jeans (too short - especially in this cold weather!) and I went scrounging to see if we had any on standby from our generous cousins and friends. No luck on the jeans, but I did come across a sweatshirt that the Munchkin had picked out at a store last September (Thomas, of course) and a vest that we had gotten somewhere. Since he has been trying to wear Daddy's fleece vest (and you can see how successful that is!!) - I thought he might be open to the idea of wearing his own. So for yesterday and today's pockets he got clothes.

Now to figure out what to do for the next 18 days?!?!?

Do you want suggestions for small gifties?
How about:
markers/crayons/colored pencils
A packet of wikki stix or pipe cleaners
A little pillow made by Mom
