If you take a look at my amazon.com baby registry, you might say something like "What in the world is she registering for that for? It has nothing to do with a baby." But wait! I promise it does!
You see, I've registered for a couple out of the ordinary things that when put into context make total and complete sense.
There's a couch cover....have you seen our nasty couch lately. It is beyond the point of no return with stains and dirt that won't come out. If a baby's going to sit or lay on that thing, it has got to be covered! And what good does a new cover do if you don't have new pillows to match?
Then there's a bike and helmet....you see, we received a two kid bike chariot thing to hook up to Greg's bike. It is totally cool because he can take trips with the kids hitched to the back. But the real hitch is that I don't own a bike. Mine got stolen a couple of years ago by a neighbor. So how will we go on these family bike trips (and lose extra post-maternity weight) without a second bike.
Then there's a beach umbrella....We've been spending a lot of time outside in the garden and yard playing. Have you seen my skin? It is as pale as the moon. Can you imagine my baby's skin unprotected? Exactly!
Vacuum...same explanation as the couch cover!
Potting table....this will help to ward off any postpartum depression, I promise!
I think the other stuff is pretty self explanatory: diapers, baby wash, nursing stuff, clothes hamper, etc.
See, I told you it'd all make sense! My pregnancy brain is in full function, I promise!
