Well time is quickly sneaking up on me with this whole baby thing. If all goes well (fingers and toes crossed) the little one will be here in less than two months.
Ok Jdid, no time to panic.
So I/we've (de wife and I) started doing some baby shopping in preparation for the new arrival. Well its been less like shopping and more like looking cause nothing much has been bought yet. Just some shopping forays to get an idea about what we need and how much it costs.
Well what can I say. Its been quite an experience. I've been looking at strollers, playpens ( I thought they had a different function mind you), cribs (unfortunately not the type featured on MTV), car seats and a whole lot of other baby stuff. Its actually quite a bit of info to ingest but so far its been interesting.
Strollers, prams, sorry they call them travel systems if ya please now, in themselves are like a whole course that should be taught to soon to be parents. I mean the range and diversity in colors, number of wheels, size of wheels, weight, adjustments and materials are amazing. Its enough to make me call them baby cars because there seem to be about as many makes and models as your average automobile. I mean they even make three wheel jogging strollers these days. What will they think of next!
And they have interesting names too; the Euro, the Passage, the Spree. Boy when the lady at the store tell me about the Spree, I was thinking Spreewells and saying to myself "boy these days they even making baby prams with spinners!" I aint buying no baby carriage with no spinners though next thing ya know baby talking bout "sitting on dubs" and want me buy him/her bling bling. Imagine if I have a chile like that, looking like lil'John or one of those dudes. Yeaaaahhh! What!! Ok I'm bugging. Sounds like a nice Chappell skit though.
Oh and as an aside why is it in Scarborough town centre all the strollers are locked down while I can go to the Eaton Centre and fool around with any stroller in the said same department stores. I must live in a bad area, people tiefing strollers lawd ave mercy!
