"Please, don't go overboard."
"She is just a baby."
"There is a three gift limit!"
Two months ago we said things like:
"She doesn't need a whole bunch of stuff."
"She could use some clothes, I guess..."
"We're not getting her anything...ok maybe one thing."
Last month we said:
"Did you see those cute things over there!"
"Oh, look at page 3...hmmm"
"She would LOVE that!"
Today I had to go to babiesrus. No I really did, I had a coupon for a FREE case of diapers (that I earned by buying 9 previous cases of diapers of course) and it was going to expire tomorrow. We're talking about $41.99 people! So I put Lily down for a nap and headed out to buy nothing*. Get my diapers and come home! I spent an hour in the store. I found myself saying over and over, "Lily doesn't need this!" But oh how I wanted her to have it!
I settled on three small toys. Can you guess which one I am most ashamed of??
*Matt had a good laugh at this statement after I posted this entry. Did I forget to mention that Matt was home when Lily went down for her nap?? Please do not call social services. I did not kiss my baby goodbye and leave her home alone :)
