Just want so say I was SO glad to see your post about the shower gift situation! I have felt like such a heinous brat lately b/c I keep 'subtly' encouraging my mom to 'subtly' steer her friends towards my registry. I was so disappointed when she told me one of her good friends who will give me a 'nicer' gift (meaning maybe spending $75) wanted to give me a baby bath filled with luxury products (Bulgari, etc.) and towels, etc. I feel horrible but I'm like, really, the baby will be fine with Johnson & Johnson products -- and he's a little boy so let's not set him down the road to being the next Ryan Seacrest too soon
I know I am being a gift grubbing brat, but I was really hoping to get some help with practical stuff to take off some of the pressure (my co went bankrupt and I am out of a job).God, I am a brat, but you made me feel a little better about it
I'm also miffed b/c my ILs haven't asked what we might want or need. I know I shouldn't expect it but I feel like my family has been all over helping us given my situation and they really haven't even asked.
