Somehow, I set up my NikkiZ’s nursery before she was born and never bought her a mobile. Why? Because I thought it would be a waste of money. Don’t ask me WHY I thought the diaper stacker or the window valance were great ways to spend money, but I blame it on the hormones.
Now that I think about it – there were SEVERAL things I bought that I ended up either:
a) Not needing
b) Not using or
c) Having WAY MORE THAN NECESSARY.
And of course since NikkiZ’s been born I’ve seen articles left and right telling me not to buy those things in those quantities. WHERE WERE THEY WHEN I WAS PREGNANT, DAMMIT. Someone needed to tell me I didn’t need 15 receiving blankets but that I WOULD need more than ONE burp rag! And to buy a DAMN MOBILE for chrissakes because look at her, she LOVES the one her aunt Junkie bought her.
It is times like these were I wonder how LilZ made it to age 10 and is relatively normal with only a few mother-induced “issues”.
