My husband's parents thought they
were beyond the little kid stage when we showed up with kids!
Everything they had was china, crystal and otherwise breakable--not
a plastic cup to be found anywhere! Nothing in their home was
childproof or able to supply a child's needs.
To help with this, I put together
Goodie Bag". It contained childproof dishes and
drinking cups. storybooks, soft kid's washcloths, wipies, a toy or
two, bibs, outlet covers, children's sunscreen and other
"little one" essentials.
Since then, I have had numerous other
situations where it came in handy. We are putting together two
versions of this gift bag--one for infants and one for toddlers and
preschoolers. We will also have embroidered bags available if you
want to create your own version!
