I’m afraid that the rest of our shopping trips from now until the baby arrives are going to be declared “last minute.” Because it seems that whenever we’re out now, we seem to need “just one more thing” for the baby.
We finally got a changing pad – crazy, I know. We got it in the past week. Yesterday I bought sheets for the pack and play, and I looked for a bassinet sheet. (Target only had pink sheets, which wouldn’t do for the baby boy.)
Tonight we ran by Kohl’s to do a few returns (of several outfits that we had three of) and thanks to tax-free weekend and several AMAZING sales, the husband has new pants for work and running shoes. I have some shoes I can wear to work and slippers for the hospital (I just know that my hot pink slippers with red hearts from Old Navy circa 2002 are not going to be acceptable for the birth of my child.) While we were out, we hit up Wal-Mart, and luckily found bassinet sheets in white and not pink. (We also had a Wal-Mart gift card to pick up that tab.)
Oh and if you can believe it, we still have baby shower stuff piled in one of our rooms downstairs, just waiting to be put in proper places.
After all of that, I can still think of a handful of items that I’d like to purchase – there’s a seat cover for my car that would be handy (so the car seat doesn’t damage the interior.) And the breathable bumper is a want, more than a need.
Thankfully, there are more “would like to haves” than “we need this” on our list.
Soon enough, there will be no more last minute shopping, and McLittle will be here. Then we’ll be presented for all new challenges of shopping with a baby. I think we’re almost ready, though. 🙂
