My neighbor came up to me yesterday and asked how I was doing and if I had started buying anything for the nursery yet. I told her I started looking and that I just wanted to find some inexpensive stuff. Then she went into this speech about how I have no idea how much babies and baby things cost and "just you wait" and blah, blah, blah. I told her that I very much know how much baby things and babies cost as I am a financial planner and look at people's budgets and plan nursery costs with them ALL the time. Still, she went on about how I have no idea until I have one as she has had and when it's mine, I will understand how much they cost. Especially with all the "I want this and I want that" talk. Again, I tried to help her understand as a planner, I will help my child understand the different between wants and needs and that I know those conversations will go on, but I know how to handle them. Needless to say...she kept going and basically called me a non-child-having-idiot. Almost slapped her. Walked away instead. See, this baby will mellow me out yet.
