Re: Another inappropriate gift thread, sorry

Thanks Elaine, support is always important. As an update, I talked to my mother on the phone last night, and she asked whether miss 12 liked the book! I was polite, but told her it was not suitable for a child. I also said it would probably be a good idea if we give her a small list, and she can choose something from it for her granddaughter for Christmas (THANKS HEAPS ALL!). She responded that she thought that would be fine, and that you just can't please everyone. She likes the book, because it full of positive, happy thoughts.

Re: Another inappropriate gift thread, sorry

How about a call, "Mom, I'm going to the bookstore/video store/whatever. Would you like me to pick up a book for Daughter's gift while I'm there. I'd like to save you the trouble. I'll drop it off this weekend so you can wrap it and all and have it ready."

Maybe she just has NO idea what to get?
