You know, I'm kind of old fashioned, I follow traditional etiquette. I don't think you throw a birthday party or shower for yourself, make people buy their own meal at a party, etc
BUT...this is one new thing that I kind of like!! I like when people register with a store for "wish lists"....we all know that when we go to a birthday party we're going to take a gift, it's nice to know what the child likes, needs and wants. I think it's okay to make a "wish list", make it for a wide range of prices so that people can spend just a few dollars (maybe books, cars, etc.) to higher priced items that grandparents and close relatives may want to buy. Then we all know exactly what to get (or we can buy what we want anyway) and we can get the right color, size....whatever. For those of us without small kids, we don't always know what the current items available are...I think it makes it easier personally, and don't see a problem with it.
