This is not political!!! Just a nice thing to do. No political bashing here, please!
So, I have an idea. Most everyone knows that the republican VP candidate Sarah Palin's 17 year old daughter Bristol is pregnant. (and plans to marry the dad) The fact that her mom is now a major political candidate has thrust Bristol under the microscope of the national media. We all know that media is generally very harsh, often, mean, and sometimes completely untruthful!
What I want to do is give Bristol a show of support for her decision to give her baby life and be a resposible parent. I am putting together a gift basket of natural and healthy parenting and baby care items. Since I live in the same town as Bristol's grandparents I will deliver the completed gift basket to them.
I would LOVE to be able to include with the gifts a scrapbook full of caring support and advice from other mothers! This is where all you wonderfull Cafemom mommies come in....
I'd like for anyone with an encouraging word, inspirational quote, Bible verses, helpful parenting advice, ect to write it on a pretty notecard and send it to me so I can put it in the scrapbook. (please don't send anything mean, critical, ect. I will not include anything that isn't nice!) If you are, or have been, a teen mom please send your advice and encouragement!
What I will be making to include in the gift basket:
Mei Tei baby carrier, Fleece hat & mittens, 'taggy' blanket,
2-4 each of NB/small size flannel fitted and minky pocket cloth diapers with fleece liners and wetbag
also a pair each of fleece and recycled wool longies to go with the fitteds (I can't knit or crochet worth poo)
Pacifier keeper bibs -- I call them "Binky Bibs", NB & toddler size baby leggings
I had thought of other items as well, but can't remember what at the moment. LOL
Wish list of things I have no experience making or can't make myself: (If you'd like to send something it should be new or in excellent, just-like-new condition. Thanks!)
Ring sling carrier, 2-4 NB/small size quick dry AIO/AI2 cloth diapers,
2-4 one size pocket diapers with inserts, a couple of really nice squishy infant prefolds (OBV?)
Snappi, 'hooter hider' / breastfeeding cover, 4-6 nice cloth nursing pads
Other natural, healthy, attatchment parenting related things!
Please PM me for mailing address or with questions. Thanks to any mommies who help with this!
