Unbelievable timing -- am reading this as I gulp down some more coffee because at 1:30 this a.m. I woke my husband up to go check on our 13 m/o, he (and baby) went promptly back to sleep, then I was up for 2 hours!

I don't know that I have any great ideas, but just wanted to say that if I were your grandson's parent, I would be so thankful that you are doing this, as it would allow me to relax and not worry about what my child might break. We have a fabric Advent calendar that our kids (1 and 3) love. All ornaments on the bottom 3 feet of our tree are non-breakable.

A few years ago, a family member sent me a Christmas floral arrangement that was in a metal sleigh. I kept the sleigh and that's where the cards go, right on the table in our front hall. I really like that kitchen cabinet idea, though!

So great! Love the colors, the kitchen cabinets over the bed are GENIUS. Where did you get that low bunk bed?

Get one of those 5-shelf closet things to organize the outfits and avoid using all those plastic bags.

Totally agree w/ first poster. Don't get him something that says "big brother", get him something simply b/c he's into it. The best things are things that he can do by himself, like coloring, trains/cars, to distract him a bit from the fact that mama's not paying as much attention to him, or something really cool that he can do with his dad or you, if you have that kind of relationship w/ him (take him out to lunch, for example).
