Today is my dude’s birthday, and what better way to start than early morning pancakes, coffee, and of course presents before work??
I am not the only crafty one in my family. Mike is crafty in all sorts of ways, but lately he has been talking a lot about woodworking and making toys for our little one. I got him the Complete Manual of Woodworking, and Making Toys that Teach to get him started. The Complete Manual has a great section on hand tools, which is why I settled on this book over the many others about Woodworking. We don’t have lots of money to buy all the power tools that some people use. Making Toys that Teach has some great beginner’s projects that will be great for a baby/toddler.
I love the idea of our baby enjoying toys that Mike and I made. And, I am even more happy that Mike will enjoy making the toys. Our little one will be born to a great father who is already in love with her. Happy Birthday Dude!
