Babies on the Brain

Tacky, tacky, tacky

I got an e-mail (along with 30 other people) today from my cousin regarding her daughter's b-day party next weekend.  Here's part of it.  Is it just me, or is this tacky as hell?

Lucy currently wears size 18 month clothes, size 4 shoes, size 3 diapers (luvs are our favorite). She loves toys that move & play music or make sounds. She likes baby Einstein DVD's, gerber puffs snacks. We can always use Dreft laundry detergent & stain remover, and Baby oxiclean in powder or spray. Ok that's all the ideas I can think of! Love you all & hope to see you next Sunday!

  • Wow. 

    If my mom insisted on a list of ideas, I would send that to her - maybe. But 30 people? Hellz no. She's asking for specific gifts!

  • Wow. I would never ask someone to buy me laundry supplies or food for my child. That just seems wierd.

  • Kind of.  

    If her mom is anything like my MIL (and relatives on that side) people have been hounding her for gift ideas.  So she just decided to get a list out there to everyone and make things easier for them.  

    Would I do it? No.

    I have def. given ideas to people who have asked, but never to everyone.  And yeah, the laundry stuff & food was mainly what I was talking about.  WTF?

    Yep, I'm, like, totes sure that's what little Lucy wants to unwrap on her birthday.

  • Yup, Tacky the Penguin strikes again.

    You know, I can almost see how someone could think they were being proactive in preventing 30 emails asking "What does she want/like/wear?" but unfortunately when it comes to gifts, you just have to wait to be asked.

  • She needs to create an amazon wishlist for her kid and then she can send everyone there for gift ideas in the future.

  • Does she understand that it is a birthday party, not a baby shower?
  • Are you going to this Bday party?  Please let me know if anyone buys her laundry detergent or stain remover!

    Yep.  And I will.  If the other guests are like me, they'll steer clear of this list & buy her some fun toys.

  • Buy the loudest most grating toy you can.

    Oh, and tie a stain pen to the package.

    Sadie is not impressed.
