I've been good. Really, really good. I haven't bought anything for our soon to be here grandchild. Until yesterday. I waited until I knew the direction that DS and DIL were going with their decorations and ideas for the baby. Yesterday, I went and got the registry and started looking at what they had picked out. Hubby and I had already agreed that we wanted to buy a big ticket item for them to furnish the baby's room, and they've agreed on what we chose from the list. Now, comes the cute part. I browsed through the store and loved way too many things. I did really well buying a few super cute things for the baby shower. And since I am the grandma and can get away with it, I bought a couple of things to have around our house so they wouldn't have to pack so much when they came our way to visit. I couldn't resist the stuff. Towels and blankets and so forth. Way more cute stuff than when ours was little. I totally indulged. DD has been doing this for months, buying a little at a time. I have waited--until now. This is so much fun.....

    I remember how much fun it was. Is it a boy or a girl??

    My parents and inlaws kept a few things at their houses too, and it was very nice. What a sweet and thoughtful mom and grandma-to-be!

    My moms work used to have a "grandma" shower for the grandma to be and everyone would bring in a gently USED item to share with the grandma to keep at her house. Garage sales are awesome for this too!!

    I like the idea of the "grandma" shower. My neighbor watches her grandkids and I offer her appropriate toys that mine have outgrown so she has some new and different things for them to play with at her house. I would rather see them put to use than just sitting around my house.
