    Christmas riddle

    So I have a Baby's 1st Christmas ornament made on Etsy. I'm about to write on the tag.

    To: Rachel (my DD)
    From: Mom

    or

    To: Mae (GD)
    From: Grandma


    The riddle is, it's for Mae but she won't really have it until her mother gives it to her. But Mae is written on the ornament and I'm the original buyer.

    So what do you write on the tag?

    I would go with To Rachel from Mom! Thanks for the reminder I need to get online today and order some stuff, Xmas will be here before we know it!

      To: Mae
      From Grandma

      My thoughts, a newborn doesn't have the ability to open a gift, or the knowledge to appreciate the gift, but that doesn't stop us from buying them clothes, toys, quilts, etc.... the gift is to the baby. There will come a time that little Mae will be old enough to know that Grandma gave that gift to Mae, and that Mae will be old enough to hang HER ornament on the tree by herself, and that even further down the years, that ornament may hang on Mae's tree for her children to see that Mommy was once a little girl too (and loved very much by her Grandmother).

        I'd go with to Mae from Grandma. It was given for the baby from you and through the years I think that will hold special meaning for her.
        If you could choose to be anything choose kindness.

          This is so sweet, Caroline! And I completely agree.

            I started 26 years ago giving my grands a dated/personalized ornament for Christmas, Always addressed the label to the child. Now my granddaughter is 26 years and has a new baby of her own. Hints about getting the little one an ornament have been sent since the October birth. I finally get a chance to give a girly ornament- It is so cute. Can't wait for her mom to see it. I gave all the grands boxes to keep their ornaments in so they each have their own box and can take it with them when they leave home.

              I vote for giving it directly to the grandchild from Grandma, for all the reasons Caroline listed.

                I agree with everyone, that was really sweet : )

                I was just around goofing off waiting for my other DD to pick me up. But you guys are all really sweet. To Mae it goes, but really mommy for now. lol

                    Ahh, it wasn't a wrong answer : ) Did you get any shopping done? I'm embarrassed to say how much I spent online for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I even bought a water fountain for my cat. lol

                        I started my shopping, yay!! My GK (4,7,8) are so hard to buy for. They have so much stuff (not from me) and I refuse to buy Play Dough, video games or electronics because I wouldn't let my own kids have them when they were growing up. Heck I have to force myself to say its ok if a toy runs on batteries even tho I don't understand why everything has to sing or jump or have flashing lights on it!

                          I don't get to much of that stuff either. I got this for my grandson,

                          A waffle iron for a four year old is pretty outside the box, so I asked her. She loves it!

                            Thanks for the idea! I was going to Target anyway today so your timing is perfect.

                              Why can't the tag have both names on it? Since it's her first that would make sense. I bought ornaments for both my daughters when they were little. One still has them, the other moved to much and has lost all pictures, ornaments, etc. I also bought them for GD's so they will have them when they move out but the oldest is 21 and still lives at home. Oh well!
