I got an invite (on Facebook, 1st pet peeve) invited to her baby shower (for her 2nd child, but DH's first child so I guess its not that bad), but she has "faked" a pregnancy before told people she was pregnant & stayed the same size her "due date" came & went by never got big, never seen a baby so she is already sketchy in my book! But on her registry info from walmart & also on her FB invite she wrote
"You may just 'come and go' if youd like. The only thing we ask (not being rude) is that you include a reciept because we already have random things and we want to prevent duplicates and as most parents know babies can also be very picky!"
First when you feel the need to write "not being rude" than that means your going to be extremely rude, second...I think its extremely rude to try to put "rules" on the gifts that you recieve...(to me after already faking a pregnancy...if this is a fake one, you'd have a very easy time returning gifts for gift cards when you have reciepts) but what rubs me the wrong way all together is that she writes "Please DO NOT buy diapers smaller than size 2 and DO NOT buy clothing smaller than 36 or 69 (please keep the season changing in mind)" I didn't know children clothing sizes come in 36 or 69... & I won't even mention "keeping the season changing in mind" & than to be picky about what size diapers you recieve...I recieved quite a bit of newborn...I've not opened any JUST IN CASE LO is too big for them already & I can easily exchange them for a bigger size..
But what is probably the best of all is she registered for Formula... really?!?! & also breast milk supplies... I understand sometimes you have to supplement with formula..but I've never seen a baby registry asking people to purchase formula...if your so concerned about what size diapers & season of clothing you get...shouldn't you be concerned that your LO will be too "picky" on the formula he drinks! Maybe he can't drink the formula you have chosen.... I've never seen a registry asking for formula...breast pump yes...(I don't see nothing wrong with that) but registering for 2 different brands of formula... I think this should be filed under "You decided to do the deed so you need to be responsible suppling ________" catergory!
