Does it come with 4WD and a leather seat? (Derek again)

Monday Oct 22, 2007

Suddenly, the idea that we need some new tools and equipment to take care of this new addition to our family is starting to hit us. So we journeyed to the local Babies R Us, and what an experience that was.

Does there really need to be an entire aisle for bottles and nipples? I don't think there are that many variations in the original model! And if we choose the wrong one, will our poor child fill up with so much gas that we can enter him in the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade? Obviously, we were a little overwhelmed by all the options.

When we looked at the strollers and car seats, we were similarly intimidated by the choices. Now we had to factor in price too. Some have fancy European names (isn't Prego a pasta sauce?) and some have lots of options (arm rests and cupholders on car seats--that's better than my truck). We didn't find any with an off-road package or leather, which is probably a good thing as I'm sure some magazine would imply that we are bad parents for subjecting our precious little one to a stroller with cloth seats and 2 wheel drive.

I think it is time to call in reinforcements. Any new moms (or dads) out there willing to do battle with Babies R Us again?


I want to go baby shopping, but alas, I think it is a bit far to make it to the Raleigh Babies-r-us this weekend. Maybe over the holidays, when the crowds couldn't be worse, just to make it more "interesting"?

I'm more than willing to help out! But all I know is what Mr. P has preferred.
