Registering didn't go so well yesterday. I pretty much had a breakdown in the bottle aisle at Target trying to decide which items to register for. I know this isn't a make or break decision. But my perfectionism sure got the best of me yesterday. I felt like I should know what type of bottle, sippy cup, and feeding utensils to select and that somehow not knowing meant I was a failure as a mother.
Target is also frustrating because they have so little inventory on their shelves. They have a ton of cribs online, but only a few in the store and absolutely no chairs to try out.
It wasn't all bad though. The best part was seeing John get so excited in the toy aisles.
After Target, we went to Babies 'r' us and it didn't get much better. I really wanted this to be a fun experience for us, but I felt like a total fraud. I couldn't decide on much of anything. I haven't been able to choose a crib or a rocker. I am so afraid of choosing wrongly. I kept thinking that people would look at our registry and think we are idiots - "some adoption agency decided they were fit to be parents?!?!"
By the end of the day I was in tears. I wish I could just select what I like and not worry about it.
Thankfully, I can add and delete things online without having to set foot in the store again.
Of course, that means I also have to actually make a decision! LOL
And no, we didn't select either of these items. Baby steps....tomorrow is another day.
