  • Re: FRIDAY!!

    @climbingwife - congrats on the new gig! When you get that first paycheck, treat yoself! 

    @MissKittyDanger - DH comes to the major appts (first, ultrasounds, anything about negative test results, etc.). 

    @lyndausvi - I really hope your H gets the Food Network show. That would be so awesome!

    @mrsconn23 - if someone just handed me $50K "with no strings", I would first want to really know if there were no strings because just...why? But then I'd put $10K into babybelle's/futurebelle's college account, prepay for a year of daycare for the two of them and then, with the $1.50 leftover, I'd buy a candybar at the grocery store checkout and cry that this is my life now.

    If she reports to you, I would let her go home for the day. 

    If not, and your work schedules allow, I would take her out to lunch or coffee. Don't bring up anything family/baby/child/sibling/anything related. Literally talk about trees or anything far away from the subject until SHE brings it up.

    MKD - keep some high dollar things on there. My ILs all went in together and bought us our jogging stroller. Plus if you have them on there, you can buy them with your registry completion discount.
    Is there a discount at all stores or just certain ones? We're likely going through walmart - they have really good deals happening quite often
    IDK about Walmart. I know Target has one, Buy Buy Baby, Babies R Us, Amazon. I'd be surprised if Walmart doesn't have one. And if they don't, honestly I'd switch to somewhere that does. They all basically sell the same stuff. 

    Full disclosure, when I needed a second round of stuff for babybelle (around 1 year), I created a Target registry as if I were having another child and just used it for the completion discount on all the new shit I needed. #noshame

    ETA: I have also created a faux wedding registry when I needed a bunch of housewares from Macy's. Also no shame.

    100% not expected, but many people do. Something gender neutral, or even a gift card to something for parents would be good.

    I also like the idea of PP's doing a book
    Or diapers, especially larger sizes.  Your kid always starts peeing out of the too small size in the middle of the night.  Having a size 2 or 3 on hand is a life-saver. 
    Or if you know the parents are cloth diapering, see what they're still missing. {liners, etc}
    They're probably still "missing" just about everything. People usually have these parties at 20 weeks (or even sooner). At that point, they usually haven't had a shower or bought much in terms of baby stuff.
