Registry is Complete!

Today Marvin and I went ahead and did our baby registries at Target and at Babies R Us. The theme is Ladybugs for Miss Maxine!

Hopefully we will get some of the stuff on our registries!! I’m not quite sure when I will be having a baby shower, and I’m not even sure that anyone is planning it yet. I’m still completely lost on that!!

I can’t wait until Maxine is here!!

Trust Me, I Know.

You know, people really seem to think I am completely ignorant to babies.

 

“Oh you wait, babies are no cakewalk”   “Beware! You will get to deal with explosive diarrhea!”

 

PEOPLE, I KNOW.

 

I am not ignorant to kids.

In the past decade, I have been pooped on, peed on, sneezed on, puked on (in the face among other things,) coughed on, snotted on, bit, scratched, punched, smacked, EVERYTHING. I’ve seen the most disgusting diapers in life. I’ve seen a kid poop out of their diaper up to their neck.

All this from kids who are NOT mine.

I know what to expect, and I know that there are things that no unwanted story will prepare me for.

 

The only thing more annoying to me than the people who think that I have no clue what babies even are, are the people who tell me how I should raise my unborn child!

 

People, I will do what I want, when I want.

 

If I need advice, I have two moms and two dads, aunts and uncles, plus a sister who have all raised kids who I can turn to.

 

Unless I ask for advice on anything else (such as what things were amazing for you that you swear by on your baby registry,) consider your advice UNSOLICITED.

Baby Registry

Recently, I have started thinking about what I will need for Baby Marsh.

I know I will need diapers and clothes.

It is everything else that has me wondering.

It is kind of overwhelming really.

 

What do I need? What DON’T I need? What will make some things easier? What kind of car seat? Do I register at one place? Do I register at multiple places?

 

WHAT DO I DO?!

 

This is where you all come in.

 

What are the essentials for a baby registry?

What have you other moms and dads received for baby that has made your life easier?

What can’t you live without for the baby?

What is something you got that was just not needed?

 

 

 

This is overwhelming, and I would love all the help I can get!
