Okay, so you all can laugh at me. I got all motivated earlier today and went to Babies R US (BRU). I had planned on trying to make some decisions regarding the registry. Raj is pretty laid back and likes whatever I like, so he told me to go and start trying to make some of the decisions. He was at home doing schoolwork. He was not being a slacker!!
So, I start with carseats. I am certain on those. I wish Graco had more patterns for the Snug-Rides, but I have found three I can be happy with. Then, I started to look at swings. Well, how many do we get? What if one of the babies hate the swing. Should I get gender neutral swings or one boy swing and one girl swing? Do the swings need to match the carseats? I did not see swings in all of my carseat patterns. Once I got really frustrated there regarding which to choose, I went to bouncy seats. I found three that are okay. I know I am getting one of those for each of the babies. The only girl bouncy seat I saw wasn’t great, but I know it will do what I need it to do. Plus, it is pink. That helps a lot.
After looking at swings, carseats, and bouncy seats I am starting to feel overwhelmed. So what do I do? I go to look at Pack ‘n Plays. I can’t find a single twin one in the store. However, the question is, do I need one or two? Are they a waste of money? Will one twin Pack ‘n Play work for all three babies? How often will it even be used? What pattern do I choose? After I have barely glanced through the Pack ‘n Plays, I am overwhelmed.
Instead of leaving at that point, I go to look at crib bedding. Stupid, stupid me! What do I think is going to happen? Do I really think I am going to find to two bedding sets I love? Oh why? Why did I do it? I was only looking for boy bedding because I am getting the girl’s bedding from Joy. Of course, I only find one set I like. I really think we are having two boys and a girl. Thus, I must find two different sets for the boys. I didn’t like two sets. I have wanted each child to have their own things, so they would feel like individuals. Now, I am almost at the point of not caring.I feel so guilty about it too!
After I had looked through the bedding for 45 seconds or so, I sat down in one the rocking chairs and called Raj. I was near tears on the phone with him. I told him I don’t know how we are going to do this. I can’t even decide on swings and bedding. How can I be a good mother if I can’t make these “simple” decisions. He told me we are okay and will survive. He was very sweet. After we hung up the phone, I did shed a few tears. Then, I gave up and came home.
I know this is all going to work out, but it is slightly overwhelming. I did find one thing I LOVED. It is a Boppy pillow with three peas in a pod all over it! I definitely want three of those for the babies! They are precious. Thinking of those has really made me smile!
As one side note, we are working on the website. My ticker with the three peas in a pod should be back up in a day or so! Now, everyone go chuckle at how illogical and emotional I have been today!!!!
I love you all.
