My DD goes to her own ‘class room’ on Sundays while FI and I go to church. The girls (and sometimes guys) that are in there are GREAT! My DD used to cry when we dropped her off and now she reaches out for the helpers there and is excited to go. It makes me feel so great that she’s gotten so comfortable with them.
I want to get them something for christmas.. something small. I don’t know any of them very personally, and sometimes there are different people, so I thought baking (or buying — I SUCK at baking) cookies would be a good idea and adding a little note saying thanks. My sister thinks that I should buy them because people are “weird about eating stuff from people they don’t know personally”
anyway.. thoughts? Ideas?

@bbsoon2be: You aren’t some complete stranger and you are easily identifiable, so I would have no problem eating your baked goods.
If you such at baking though, why bother?

I’m sure they would love getting cookies from you. You’re not a stranger. I wouldn’t suggest bringing them during daycare though, as all the kids will see and want them!

Yeah, maybe not from someone on the street, but I’d definitely eat baked goods from someone whose kid I watch! But I agree with the PP – if you really do suck at baking, or don’t enjoy it, just save yourself the trouble and buy some. 🙂 I think it’s a really sweet idea, and I’m sure they’ll appreciate it!
(Actually, I don’t know who I’m kidding. I’d probably eat cookies from a stranger on the street. I love cookies.)

I would eat the shit out of your cookies!

I’ll eat pretty much anything.

If a stranger came up to me in the street saying “Eat this cupcake. It has…sprinkles,” I would probably run screaming. But you’re hardly a stranger – these people are very familiar with your daughter and, while they may not know you as well, I’m sure they would appreciate the gesture.

Technically most of us would eat goods baked by strangers everyday!

I am always excited for baked goods. I spend 5 years working at a coffee shop and our regulars would often bring in cakes and cookies, we never gave it a second thought and we were always happy that our customers thought enough of to bring in baked goods.

@mrsSonthebeach: yes, it’s MUCH more likely that I’ll buy I like baking but I’m just not great at it.. cooking is more my thing. I thought I might like to try something.. we’ll see how I feel.
@AlwaysSunny: luckily they’re 1 year olds and I’ll have them wrapped up nicely so they likely won’t know what’s in the pretty bags. If they were older I’d have problems getting them past the door!

Um. I kinda do, actually. On a semi-regular basis. One of my customers bakes as a stress reliever, and he brings us muffins and breads and stuff every week. I actually just got down devouring a pack of his mini blueberry muffins. :X

I am bit of a snob because I bake and decorate cakes in my spare time. So with me I dont eat any cake, cookies, or sweets from anyone. If I did in the past I would judge them based on how mine would taste I didnt do it on purpose it just happened. So now I just say thank you and give it to someone else.
