hmo, what's with all of the polls?

without any rhyme or reason.  I want to know about the knockdown fight you had with H re: parental blame and about shower are you planning/attending.

Tell me tell me tell me.

    the parent thing: i've been cheating, and this one person said that it's the one thing that makes a fight into a BIG DEAL.  i thought it was weird, and wanted to know what y'all thought.

    the shower thing: some friends want to throw us a shower, and asked us for a guest list.  we are reluctant to include some dear oot friends because we feel it would be awkward.

    also, registering is going to suck.  i haven't found a single set of crib bedding i even remotely like.  i am marginally okay with a dwell studio set, despite it being $330, but it is purple and i hate purple with a passion.  thanks for that, red hat society.

    I would say I'd help you shop, but you're better at that than me.  However, I do have some handy crafty friends that could make you whatever you want, if you're interested.

    And it's okay - you can send me an invite to the shower.  :)  You know I won't come, but I'll send a gift anyways, dear, close friend Hmo.

    As one who moved away from all of her friends a few years ago, I can tell you that they will appreciate the invitation even if they can't come.  I've been gone for three years and still catch myself feeling mildly offended when one of my friends mentions going to a bbq at another friend's house.  Why wasn't I invited?!?!?  Oh yeah, I live 250 miles away.

    I just a friendly gal looking for options.

    FWIW, just go with separates on the crib bedding.  You'll be kicking yourself for spending $330 and then not even using the bumper or blanket.  (at least, I am kicking myself for spending $200 and only using the dustruffle and sheet. I could have paid $30 for that.)

    And you'd best be registering or at least FBMing us your new address since you moved.

    Totally agreed with DG.  However, come winter, I'm sure the comforters from DD's sets will come in handy.  Yes, I bought two bedding sets.  One entire set was less than $30 at JCP on clearance.

    oh, and re: shower invites - invite them. 

    I actually attended my college roommate's shower in january, even though it meant flying to New Jersey.  Mostly it was an excuse to visit, but other people came from OOT, too.  So it's not super crazy.  And friends will want to get the invite and get registry info.

    I've sent six wedding presents and baby shower gifts in the past months and not attended one event. Just because I am not there, doesn't mean baby boy should go without his wipe warmer!

    Send the invites.  I'm sure your friends will be happy to be included.  People love babies MUCH more then they like weddings.

    And please be updating that address.
