Sleep Deprivation-more dangerous than previously thought

So, in my quest for a good night's sleep-the sleep of my previous life, the sleep of the privileged, the sleep of my youth...I have come to appreciate the beauty of internet surfing and shopping. Yes, I have been known to spend hours on the computer wasting time, searching for the perfect face cream, but this is a whole new world. I am now, of course, obsessed with shopping for baby things. Unique things. MUST HAVE things.

So, HK is now the proud owner of lots of superfluous items that are going to make our lives easier. I am convinced.

This website-greatbabyproducts.com has great stuff for GREAT prices. I am hooked. I love gadgets. I blame my dad for that.

So, I just bought her a formula dispenser. Now really-this is a handy little thing. Instead of having to carry the entire container of formula powder, I can pre-portion it into this little tupperware thing. Why can I not use a ziplock bag?-well just because. This is much cuter. Those munchkin people know what they are doing. They LOVE people like me.




Then I decided that she MUST have a juice box holder. I mean, come on. One day she will drink juice boxes. Every child must have a holder for these. They DO squirt out of the top of the straw if you squeeze the box too hard. So, I bought those too.



Then, I decided that on those hot summer days, you definitely need a swim diaper. It is the first of February and all and swim season is just around the corner (thanks groundhog for extending this LOVELY winter weather by the way). So, I bought that too. It will be very handy. Really, it will. The description says that most public pools no longer allow disposable diapers, and it is irrelevant that both sets of grandparents have their own private pools. We may need to go to a public pool at some point.

Then, I thought that she might need a fairy train set. My friend Sally sent me the link to this one, and as she likes to say, I do not make the rules here. I just have to make sure that I stimulate HK's mind so she can become a brain surgeon and care for me in my old age. This one is from chasing-fireflies.com...

I did not buy it-but oh-it is so sweet! I can see her racing her little fairy train around and around the tracks. She is only 3 weeks old, I know. But really, I think she is a genius. And, every little girl should have a train set.

Don't worry-I am not completely losing it. I think I will unplug the computer to maintain my sanity and my bank account, though!

  2. It does get obsessive at times doesn't it? I should have bought stock in the Wet Ones travel size packs - we go through them like crazy! "One Step Ahead" is another catalog that has all SORTS of gadgets/gizmos etc. We also got Claire's halloween costume from there and I LOVED it. They are unique and adorable!

  3. Oh just wait- the gadgets get so much better AND so do the clothes. You must get matching Lily dresses...

    I'm just saying
