Help get the home ready
If you're useful with a paint brush, now is the time to use your skills. Even if you're not physically able, or live close by, you can always lend a practical hand by offering advice on colors for the nursery, or just give a big thumbs up for any work your daughter and her husband have carried out. For those who love handiwork, you could always get those knitting needles out and make baby's first blanket.
