This weekend my husband and I decided to head over to Babies-R-Us to do a little registering before the babies arrive! I was telling my sister and she said,"Remember.... it's a BUSINESS!" She couldn't have been more right. The first thing you think when you walk in is wow! Slightly overwhelming!

We walked around and registered for the basics. Burp cloths, diapers, bottles, receiving blankets etc. etc., but quickly moved past the "Boogie wipes,"& "pee pee tee pees." I mean seriously?
It really got me thinking. I mean how did our parents survive without all this crap? My mom had a newborn, a two year old, and a four year old all at once! No nanny mind you, and somehow we survived!
All of these products are designed to make our lives easier, but somehow they seem to make them harder. I don't think I've ever seen moms more stressed!
So we we whisked through the store zapping our registry gun at things we wanted and "needed" and quickly hurried out.
Don't get me wrong, we're excited to be parents. We know it's going to be hard, (especially with twins) but isn't that part of the experience?
The best part? My husband is going to make our bassinet. I know it will be more beautiful and well made than any one of those overpriced plastic and cloth ones you can buy, AND it will be a lot more special! ( :
