So because we have family in NW Illinois, Chicago and Michigan and NO ONE wants to travel we have to drag my pregnant butt all over the Midwest for baby showers in a car that probably won't make it through the summer.
Fine- I can get over that. They are throwing me showers and that is very nice of them.
Two showers down- we received nothing that was on our registries. OK. Fine. But at the showers everyone complained at me about how they all went to Target and couldn't find the registry....we didn't register at Target and we made very sure to tell everyone that. We registered on Amazon (for those that wanted to do internet shopping) and at Babies R Us because these same people told us that's where we HAD to register. Plus- I don't like Target. I don't like the company and I don't like what they carry in terms of baby stuff.
So I have spent the last 2 months researching things that I would really want for my baby, pricing them out and checking them over and over again to make sure we had everything ready and easy for people...then they don't even read what is on the shower invitations to where we are registered or bother calling us when they can't pull up our registry!
Not to sound ungrateful- they got us some very nice things. I just feel like I have wasted a ton of energy and time.
Rant over. Thanks for reading.
