Me: So I’ve registered for the baby shower. Do you think I’ll need more than 4 bottles? I’m planning on breastfeeding so…
Auntie P: (hysterical laughter) Uh, yeah, you’ll need more. You didn’t register for any blankets.
Me: Well, I have two. Will I need more than that?
Auntie P: (more hysterical laughter)
My step-mom is throwing me a baby shower when I’m home. For this I am eternally grateful. My aunties are checking and double checking my registry. Apparently it is the skimpiest saddest registry they’ve ever seen. After a flurry of e-mails and phone calls, I’m now on the right track with more blankets and bibs and bottles.
Apparently, I don’t know nothin’ ’bout birthin’ babies.
