That La Kid

wishin' an' hopin'!

on March 28, 2012

I was just thinking about that little thing wiggling on the ultrasound and something occurred to me…

I’m having a baby.

Like, it might ACTUALLY pan out.  Not might… it probably WILL pan out.  More likely than not… unless something terrible happens… we’re really going to be parents by Halloween.

Generally, I am of the mindset that we could have this baby.  Very seldom do I really feel like we will have this baby.  But today, thinking about that ultrasound, I had a will moment.

I can’t decide whether to register at Target or Babies R Us.  Here’s the thing, we registered at Target when we got married.  Since then, I’ve been on a crusade to save my cousins (and eventually sisters) from making the same mistake.  If I had it to do over again, it would be Crate and Barrel all the way.  So naturally, when it came to registering for this baby, I went to Land of Nod.  But the funny thing is, if you aren’t interested in $700 cribs and you already have your crib bedding (vintage Mickey Mouse), they don’t offer much that I wasn’t able to find at, you guessed it, Target.  The same Puj tub, the same BabyBjorn travel crib, the same Skip Hop Hare Comb and Brush Kit…

The stroller we like is at Target.  I honestly don’t know of anything Babies R Us has that Target doesn’t, but it’d be fun to shop there.  BUT – my main argument when I tell brides not to register at Bed, Bath and Beyond or Target is “don’t pick a place just because your guests like to shop there.  Get what you love – from a store YOU like.”

So, I don’t know… I’m open to suggestion.  I don’t really want to fool with a bunch of crap.  I mostly want to register for the crucial items, and not fill the registry with a bunch of cutesy crap that will distract people from investing in what we really need.
