No, I'm not talking about Angelina Jolie's ten thousand children, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's recent baby announcement, the always changing rumors of the real father of Suri Cruise, Avril Lavigne, Jack Black or any other celebrity baby.
No, no, no.
I'm talking about my first trip to Babies 'R' Us.
It's stills a way off before my wife births our child (June 24th due date), but tonight we decided that it was time we venture into a Babies 'R' Us, superstore and see what these stores are all about.
I was sort of excited to see what this store was like, but upon going inside I was instantly struck with paralysis. Um, they have the pacifiers and bottles separated by brands! There's three different stages of strollers and car seats, some are three stages in one, while others focus on specific stages!?
I mean some of these strollers are giant! And then they have fixtures and attachments and hanging mobiles that come with all sorts of spinning things.
And do kids really like mobiles so much that everything needs to have one?
Anyways, the intention is not for this blog to turn into a daddy blog, but man, we're talking about a whole different world here, and it's hard to know what stuff is crazy ridiculousness and what stuff is going to future life essentials. All I know is that it's expensive, takes up a lot of space, and some of it's straight up scary.
