OK, I am trying to decide about registering.
The problem is I am worried what people might think.
Will they think,
"Seriously, the girl has already had 2 kids! What could she possibly need?"
"Good, now I will know what she needs."?
As I have mentioned before, it is not that I need a lot. Clothes, bedding, blankets, and layette stuff are totally taken care of. I have all the big stuff that is necessary right now.
It is mostly essential type stuff like diapers, wipes, nursing stuff, and few other things. It has been 5 years since my last baby.
I just don't want people to think I am saying,
"WoooHooo, Look at me! I am pregnant! Buy me stuff!".
I am really thinking about it for 2 reasons.
First, for me. I am a list maker. A.LIST.MAKER! And doing the registery really helped me see what I actually needed and what kinds of those things I was interested in. I figured if nothing else, it will save me the thinking part later when I go to buy something but my brain is mush!
Second, IF people did want to generously offer to make a purchase, I figured it would make it easier on them if I could direct them to specific websites or things.
The silly thing is I am actually working on registries at 3 places! But all the lists are really small and a lot of things are duplicates. Again, I was thinking it would be easier on me and them depending upon where they live or if they want to use the Internet.
The lists are actually in transition. I already know a few things I need to take off. I also have some friends who are helping me decide which types of products are really best. There are so many choices when it comes to cloth diapers and safe disposables and slings, that I have my experts working on it for me! :) So more items will probably be deleted after that.
So really, tell me the truth.
Is it bad that I am even doing this?
