Threads are moving toooooo fast for me to keep up with it feels like! I guess I dont get on enough now!
Just wanted to share this little irritation....
A Friend of mine really wanted to throw me a baby shower. It's coming up (April 29th!!!) and My Aunt had called my mother and asked if there was something I REALLY wanted that maybe they could go in on together and get for me.
My mom kindly explained that I really wanted a bassinet and after much searching had found one that I really liked (it is a bassinet, so it rocks, but it has fold down wheels so you can wheel it around, the top part can come out of the base, it has a detachable remote control mobile, and a section folds down to make it into a co-sleeper).
My aunt then went on to say that $99 is ridiculous
for something the baby will only be in for 4 or 5 months and that they should buy me a stroller because I need to be out walking!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK....... first of all, if you dont care what some one really wants... dont ask... and second, I dont have a crib, which means, no cute bumper set, or diaper stacker, or matching quilt or wall hangings to buy... no nursery to decorate, no nursery furniture to get,no rocker, no rugs, or curtains or heck I wont even have a changing table... I AM SHARING ONE ROOM WITH TWO KIDS.... and the computer!! AND one of the two dressers in this room is full of my DADS clothes!!!!!!!! If the one thing I want is a Bassinet, something that would make me happy, i would really enjoy having and maybe make this all not feel so bad....... dont you think MAYBE.... JUST MAYBE.... it's not so bad? Not such an extravegent purchase??? I sleep on a twin bed.... there really isn't enough room to have the baby in the bed with me the whole night.
I guess I'm just a bit blown away!
: Part of me is able to laugh at IMO is the ridiculousness of it all.... My theory though :"If you dont really carewhat they want .... dont ask!"
thanks for listening to my rant!
