I’ve mentioned that we don’t have a nursery to furnish and decorate yet and the delivery of our stroller was delayed from yesterday to Monday so I’ve been chomping at the bit to feel like I’ve done something… anything! So Mike and I went to Target this afternoon and got some “emergency” supplies that can at least get us started right off the bat. Being the eternal researcher and shopper, I had an idea of what I wanted to get but also wanted to be mindful that I was taking Mike through unfamiliar and scary territory so we kept it short and sweet. He handled it very well! He had a very valid and logical opinion on how many diapers we should get (84? 72? 30? Sensitive?) and didn’t hesitate about which baby wash to choose from (I narrowed it down to two). I stopped short of buying products geared toward “mommy” (read: feminine supplies) because that seemed to be much scarier than the diaper aisle. Baby steps. For both of us.
And of course you don’t go into Target without buying other stuff so we also picked up some other toiletries and kitty litter. The irony was not lost on me that we came home bearing supplies for all things that will be pooping in the house.
Tomorrow I am willingly getting up at 5 o’clock on Sunday morning to accompany Mike to a triathlon about an hour away… just because there so happens to be a Carter’s outlet nearby. What can I say–I’m a giver.
