I post often but I don't seem to get replies unless its a Drama post....I am beginning to feel unloved. When I need advice I can't find it!!!

Its too the point now I will make a post on other moms post who have no reply even if I don't have advice for them just so that they feel like atleast someone read them!

Ok #1 I won't have much money and I need some suggestions on presents for a 1 yr old?

#2 What kinda of cake would you give your 1 yr old to dive into on his/her first birthday?

NO BASHING PLEASE!

haha I feel u about not getting replies when u post.  It happens to me too>  Guess oue life is too boring and drama free:)  Gifts, how about the dollar store?  As for a cake, I would go with vanilla maybe with some sort of fruit and a whipped crm or crm chex frosting.  If you like to bake, the book what to expect when ur expecting has a first bday cake recipe.  gl

Just make a homemade cake with a box mix. I did this for my sisters 2 kids over the summer. Frosting cake and decorations all came to about $5-$7.

Or for my sons recent birthday I made a cookie cake. I also purchased one and people only ate the homemade one. A 1 yr old is going to dig into anything sweet I' m sure.

When my son turned 1 some of his faves were:

 music

finger paint

crayons/ coloring book

bath toys or coloring items

books
