With the baby shower coming up, I’ve started to get some feedback over the items listed on our baby registry. And today was just filled with tons of laughs.
- Apparently, a baby girl is NOT supposed to wear blue. Auntie Virgie took it upon herself to send me photos of items on my list that didn’t seem appropriate for her niece. I thought the items were adorable and I want them anyway! And like I told her Auntie, it’s not baby blue, it’s ocean blue like the waters of Hawaii. Very appropriate for my island baby. And hello! brown is the color of wet sand!!! Sense a theme here….da island way baby!
Auntie Virgie’s solution is to buy blue ribbons to make it clear that her niece is in fact a NIECE, not a nephew. She’s going to be the girliest, tomboy ever.
- Shortly after the above exchanged happened, I asked a fellow co-worker whether or not I needed bottles since I plan on breastfeeding. Then I followed it up with “If I’m using a pump, am I pumping into a bottle or bag?”. Hey, I’m a novice at this. Seriously. I thought they were legitimate questions. Needless to say, the mothers in the office got a good laugh out of it. And not one to take myself too seriously, I got a good laugh out of it too.
It’s going to be SOOOOO interesting to see myself go through this learning phase. Wow, I’ve got a lot to learn!
