    I agree with others that your idea is a good one--IMO simple is best.  If you wanted to add a couple of special things for the babies, you could blow a few bubbles or put on some kid-friendly music (i more »

    mcpu40- If the email you received came from a parent, how can you assume that "teachers expect gifts"? My children's teachers specifically asked that parents not send in personal gifts. If a parent wa more »
