At the risk of sounding like an ungrateful B, why in the world did I spend HOURS, DAYS, WEEKS putting together a baby registry when exactly zero of my registry items have been checked off? My baby shower is in 6 days and not one thing has been taken off the list! I thought the whole idea was "This is what I need, if you would like to purchase a gift choose one of the following". I realize that a lot of people do gift cards these days but I have had at least a dozen people ask where we're registered. And not to sound stuck up or pretentious, because I LIVE for hand me downs, but this is my first baby and I don't want a bunch of used old stuff people picked up at yard sales....she's new, she needs new things. Whew....much better, I can't rant anywhere else without feeling like a horrible, ungrateful person!
