Flammable selfish mommy moment

Mobile: flammable selfish mommy moment.

Today at work we had our secret Santa. The limit was 10 so it wasn't budget breaking. Ok the bratty part. My gift was a fleece pajama onesie from Carter's. It was very sweet, but I was kind of hoping for a mommy gift.

It is the thought that counts nd that's 10 bucks I don't have to spend on one. And baby H could use another one in the 03 month size.

Anyways. That's it. Flame away.

  • No flaming here. My DH had secret Santa at work and someone gave him a babies r us card. Same as you - thoughtful gift, but he really wanted something for him, and I don't blame you guys!

    Agreed! If it were your birthday I wouldn't buy you clothes for your baby.

    This. I will be pissed if the person who got my name in my family's secret santa gives me a baby gift. It's not like it's a secret santa for babies or a baby gift swap. They should have given you something for you, you aren't only a mom!



  • Ok. Phew glad to know I'm not having a bratty mommy moment.

    I kind of expected to get a baby gift. But it kinda stinks just being known as a mommy. It's a bit of an identity crisis creator.

    Anywho. I'm thankful for the thought nonetheless

    I feel you on the identity crisis.

  • The year we found out we were expecting dd, it was right before thanksgiving and my bday. When DH asked what I wanted for my bday and Christmas, I said anything but baby stuff. It was my last year to be selfish I felt. Not saying you can't, saying I feel ya! Now I'm just over it and am good getting stuff for the kids since there's nothing I want or need other than a tropical vacation with accompanying nanny!!!

    My MIL bought "me" a onsie and socks for my birthday in March. I was like, ummmm thanks, I am sure he or she will like them...in seven months.

    I'll be honest, I was actually kind of hurt. It made me feel like an incubator not a person.

    Your DH could go to a toys r us store to use the gift card. He could get a movie or something else he'd like!

    This is way worse IMO. A coworker probably just didn't know what else to get you...but mil should know better. I would be pretty pissed. Maybe you can give her some toys for lo to keep at her house this Christmas.
