It comes across as, "We don't want to see YOU, but here's our shopping list...."
Yup! That's the point!!!
Along the same line, this is wording for a sign you can post on your front door that I found online a while ago from a midwife's practice...
"This home has a new baby!
_______________(name) was born on ______________ at ___________ am/pm weighing ________ and was ___________ long.
***Please limit your stay to 10 minutes unless you are helping with house chores. If you are asked to stay longer, please help with _____________________ (mom tells us what she wants help with and we fill it out).
Greet [name/s of older children] first! (big bold letters, probably in a different color)
If you or your children are sick, DO NOT COME IN!
Thank You for Visiting
In case Mommy or Daddy forgot to tell you: Thank you for visiting and for any thing you brought / any thing you helped with around the house. We are very tired and will properly thank you later."
