Lesson #611 How to Register for Your Baby Shower

November 15, 2014

This is my advice for your baby registry. I registered at Target.

HOWEVER, no matter HOW PERFECT you make it, no matter how much research, no matter if you receive ten billion things for your baby shower… YOU WILL, rush to target a million times in the first month, and you will spend an inordinate, unreal, unbelievable amount of money on a 7 lb. human being.


FOR MAMA
A Watch. You've never checked the time so much in your life. Didn't I just feed that baby? Oh, it was 3 hours ago. How long has the baby been sleeping? How many hours of sleep did I NOT get? I suggest the Timex Weekender. It's trendy, but functional and waterproof, for the breast milk, and multiple baby fluids that WILL get on it. It has comfy interchangeable straps, AND they sent me a new one when mine stopped working after one year of hard use.
