J Turns One

June 21st, 2015 at 02:17 pm

It was J 's first birthday on Friday. I made a cake made from fruit puree with wholemeal flour, topped with raspberries and cream. The kids loved it, dh not so much. I'm going to make it again, this time in a loaf tin for them.

SG had her nursery induction on Friday too. She starts in August. So far it looks as though we need to add nursery snacks, soft shoes /slippers and extra casual clothes to the budget between now and then. It's not a private nursery.

Dh 's mum and brother dropped off presents today. His mum basically brought us the stuff she couldn't sell at her last baby and kids market. His brother actually bought some pyjamas for him. I don't mean to sound ungrateful but doesn't he deserve more than her junk for his first birthday? They're getting donated or recycled.

J was easy to please on his birthday. A balloon and a bit of cake and he was happy.

    He's one. He's not going to know/remember what he got/didn't get.

    Yeah it would be nice to have the kids getting nice presents, at least J is young enough to not know the difference. Glad the kids enjoyed the cake Smile

    If you can't use anything, I'd pass it along and move it out. I agree with MEC, in-laws ... not much you can do about it ... Sounds like J had a lovely little get-together. Smile
