You’re a bad baby! Get in your crate!


Yeah, so, David and I finally got around to adding things to the baby registry for the upcoming baby showers.

That’s right, I said “showers,” plural. I don’t mean to brag, but we are totally awesome and popular. Everyone loves us. Jealous?

The baby registry thing was a little overwhelming. There’s a lot of stuff out there for babies, and we’re not sure what we will really need. By the way, did you know that they don’t call them “play pens” anymore? They are “play yards.” WTF? Maybe that constitutes a yard in San Francisco, but everywhere else that’s a pen. I love that some marketing guy actually thought, “You know, we might sell more play pens if we called them ‘play yards.'” And everyone in the room agreed.

So anyway, when the spawn gets older he will need stuff, but newborns don’t need much, right? They’re babies. They just eat, sleep, burb and poop, repeat as necessary.

With that in mind, we settled on a list of what we really need for the spawn:

  • Bottles
  • Diapers
  • Formula
  • Crib
  • Some blankets
  • And this …

I assume the attachable water and food dishes are sold separately?

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Now all you need are more babies and cages with wheels and you’ve got yourself a circus train!

  2. Damnit, I knew we forgot something on ours.
