Angie met me at the farmer's market today. We grabbed a boat load of apples and some herbs and then she told me she was taking me somewhere special...
I was suddenly overwhelmed.
So much stuff! Do we need all this stuff? I don't even know what any of it is, but it seems like we might need it. It all looks necessary. How did anyone have children before this stuff?
Is it better to rent a breast pump? Did you know you can rent a breast pump? Apparently that's something people do. Rent a breast pump. Do we need the breast pump backpack?
Baby bath tubs... Can we use a sink? I don't know... I need to know.
And the clothes! There were mini Jets and Giants outfits... I guess we'll have to pick. I'm partial to the Jets because there's something blue collar about them. I'm a Giants fan, as well, but I just like the scrappiness of the Jets... and we've been to a Jets game... that counts for something.
There will be Yankees gear... male or female. No Mets. No Rockies (sorry grandma) unless they are in Colorado. While they are in NY... or anywhere outside Colorado, there will be pinstripes. Yankee pinstripes.
Cribs, strollers, car seats, strollers with car seats, umbrella strollers, swings, playpens.
I'm going to have to move to a new place, a warehouse, just to have room for the stuff!
It's a little insane.
I can't imagine what people did when they had children before Babies R'Us.
