No, I not the meanest Mom in the world! My 10 year old daughter wanted to get rid of all her Barbies, Webkinz, Build a Bears etc, as she's really into computers, sports and other more grown up stuff. We had a garage sale yesterday. She's happy she made $50 and I'm happy I have a huge shelf of empty plastic bins in the basement! Time to buy more supplies!

I love it! I have a closet near my kitchen filled with my 4 kids' toys that I would love to fill with cake stuff. But I have a long wait as they are 4,4,2, & 2 (2 sets of twins). Enjoy shopping!

Bad Bad mom, lol. I know the feeling I does get tired of seeing the toys my kids don't play with. I don't buy them toys, other people do. Well look on the bright side the more cakes you sell, the more grown up stuff you can buy for her.

i am lucky enough mine keep each other busy all day...the oldest is in home school so she is around to help when i need her..the other two is at school all day long...and the twins keep each other busy most of the time...i do alot of my baking early mornings or late nights...plus i am a sahm and i have a wonderful husband that helps me alot...if i need quiet time he takes the little ones outside or with him when he has to go somewhere...and he helps me decorate alot of my cakes thumbs_up.gif

Sounds like a great idea. I think I need to start a garage sale too.

On top of a full time job, I get very little sleep. Most cakes are after their bed times. But I wouldn't change it for the world...well except for my kids to get good enough to help with cakes. Right now, they (and hubby) just want to eat the fondant and cake scraps and ask me a million questionsicon_smile.gif
