I had $25 in JCPenney rewards cash today and I decided that I was going to spend it however I wanted to spend it. Up until yesterday I had not purchased a single item for the baby. But we were given an offer we couldn't refuse yesterday and I got a 0-5 carseat/stroller deal for well, let's just say, I practically stole it from some of our friends at church (THANKS, R&R). She wanted a book and offered to trade me the book for the stroller. Obviously they were being very generous but now that the spending ban was ended I figured it was time.
I bought the two cutest outfits. One is pink pinstriped so that should give you a clue as to the gender of the baby. But I knew all along she would be a girl, simply because it's not my preference. And yes, my daughter is that powerful. ;-)
So I waded through dozens of kitty cats and pink pin stripes and teddy bears and Little Princess outfits and came up with a couple of really cute choices. And it was fun.
These aren't the circumstances I would prefer for my first grandchildren to enter this world, but buying a couple outfits was fun for me! And I wanted to do it. So I did. And I liked it.
