To avoid letting your child take from you, give freely.

I think that's the answer. A child has needs. His or her needs cannot be changed or diluted or postponed. But if you give, you retain your power, your child's needs are fulfilled, you maintain your relationship. I think.

Speaking of giving, I'll now give my time and body to my hungry baby.

Stacking Cups

Magic Cabin has lots of fun toys, and all appear to be beautifully made. I especially love these dolls. Reviewed here, they are getting me all excited about filling an Easter basket for Addie.

She'll have beautiful, handmade things and will end up liking the cheap plastic things more. Well, hopefully not.

So I'm thinking I could make those stacking cups. Some brightly colored fabric, a little batting, and the stitching shouldn't be hard. I might be able to get all of it at the thrift store.
