Registering for kid stuff?

My fiance and I are both getting married for the second time, and I have 2 children from my previous marriage. We are also in the process of buying a house. I put a couple of things for the kids' rooms on our wedding registry. Just a set of twin sized sheets and a blanket for each of them (They are both in toddler beds as they share a room but when we move into our house they will both be moving into twin sized beds, so we don't have any twin sized bedding for them yet.) Does anyone think this is rude? The way I was looking at it is that if people are buying off of our registry, they are wanting to give us what we need and where we have both been married before we do not need all of the typical house stuff that you need when you first move out on your own... So we registered for what we DO need... Just wondering what other people think of this.

    when we have friends who are marrying for the second time and have children we give them family passes to our zoo. 

    As far as registering for kids things, as long as it is only a few things I don't thing guests will mind. If you were to register for a lot of things - even though their sheets and so on are household items - I think people might find it odd.

    I don't think thats odd...sheets/blankets/some dishware that is more suitable for them. What I thought was weird was a couple who does not have their own place, they share a shower with his mother and sister....and the bride registered for CHILDS bathroom stuff for their baby....sorry: You don't have your own bathroom let alone one for your child wth are you thinking? But some people dont think. Also you could just see if you get gc's or checks and buy it yourself if you need

    Like PPs said -- as long as there's just a little, and you don't go overboard, you should be find. I think people will understand (and if not, ask someone else, haha)

    I think since it's household items - not a Baby Bjorn or toys - it's fine.  I would keep it to a few small items, but I wouldn't side-eye if it's only a few household items.

    A cousin of mine just married a woman with two teenage boys.  On the registry was sports equipment (for sports we knew my cousin didn't play).  It really rubbed a lot of people the wrong way that they were putting things for the kids on their wedding registry.  I checked the registry after the wedding and everything was purchased except what was obviously for the boys .

    I see no problem registering for sheets and towels geared toward the kids' rooms.  I mean, if people can register for sheets for their guest room, then why not for sheets for the kids' beds?

    I agree with this. Stick to a few household items and you'll be fine.

    As long as it is only one or two things, otherwise I think it would be odd.
