My family members seem to have their own ideas about what they want to get me, so they call and ask, "do you want one of those baby bjorns?" or "what kind of high chair do you need?" Or "what do you need for your nursery?" Sounds nice, but it's actually annoying me.
Okay people. If I need it or want it, it's on my registry. You know it exists, it's easy to access -- go look already! If I don't need it, already have it, or don't want it, my registry will tell you it's fulfilled or it won't be there at all!
I'm anticipating going to my family shower this weekend and receiving gifts of things I don't want or need (not even talking clothes here, I'm talking high chairs and random gear that I'm either very particular about (and therefore bought myself) or against entirely for my own reasons).
The critical things I still need have not been marked off my registry, and they are things that have to be ordered - definitely won't be in time for a shower this weekend. I'm thinking I'm going to have to fork over a lot more cash for the necessities than I thought. This shower, for many reasons other than gifts, is not about me or the baby, it's about what other people want to do/like to do.
Okay vent over - I'll get over myself, don't yell at me.
