Internets, I went on a wee spin looking at cribs, seeing as there might be a real baby next year, and let me tell you, that's not going to happen again for quite a while.
$1700? For a crib? Are you freakin' kidding me? At least they throw in a mattress, but nothing else. It was made of painted metal with a little canopy doohickey thingie over the center. I guess it was trying to be all Victorian and shit, however, these people obviously didn't do their homework, otherwise there would be tie-downs and bottles of gin and/or laudanum to keep the little tykes quiet.
And that was enough for me. It's going to be Wa$mart for this kiddo, none of this 'it's so cute!' nonsense. Now, I don't have anything against anybody who wants to spend heaps on their little darling...I just don't see the point of spending the college money that early. Which reminds me, still haven't seen hide nor hair of my hospital bill...makes me nervous, y'know? For the moment, I shall continue to live in 'maybe they forgot!'-land.
Hey, it could happen.
