So if you guys don't already know, my mom Threw me a baby shower about 7 weeks ago, it was a great turn out tons of people and tons of Stuff for Tyler, well my mom invited my Husbands mom and his sisters as well, but they couldn't come. and just some background, they haven't met each other yet... anyways so Chris's mom decides to throw me a baby shower today, and im almost 37 weeks pregnant, alittle late don't you think??

so my baby shower was great, and i got every thing except the little things like Diapers, wipes washcloths socks...ect... all the little things that you need alot of.

chris's mom asked what i needed and so i told her, and i got all the names and addresses of people up here that couldn't make it to my other one and typed up the list, cuz my hand writing suck!!!! i mean really bad lol so i go to her house and give her the list, and we talk about the shower and every thing, i tell her im Registered at Target, and i made a new registry at Walmart, because thats all she has up where she lives. so i tell her to put that on the invitations and she actually spelt my name right for once LAUREN... its not that hard but apparently it is! so then she reminds me about directions, so i really quick write up some, well i was expecting her to type them up and make the m look nice, but nope, she photo copied my chicken scratch hand writing and stuck one in each envelope, with my sloping down the page writing lol, and when she photo copied it, she cut of the first 2 the letters on every sentence... and then when i left, she cut out every ones name and taped them onto the envelope!!!! they looked so shitty!!

so down to the basics, every one needs to eat right?? well she decides she wants a Tray theme... a Meat Tray Cheese Tray and Veggie Tray and a............... Relish Tray... i was like what the fuck is a relish tray... any ways, since she lives an hour away she deiced that she would place the oreder at the super walmart in port st. Lucie ( thats where i live)... but there are 3 of them, so of course, its at the one like 20 miles a way, so yesterday i go and pick them up with the money oreder she sent me $50 for the cake and the meat n cheese,, and on the cake was written CONGRATULATIONS TYLER!!!!! WTF!!! hes not here yet... no congrats Lauren and Chris or welcome Tyler or Tylers baby shower... so random so i pick them up and drive my millions of miles when gas is $3 a gallon and get this fucking meat tray, that was so not worth $33. any ways, so im busting ass cleaning my house all day yesterday and today for my baby shower, that i am more or less throwing for my self at my house... so my mom shows up and brought two dishes, so we could at least have something that we liked to eat there.. the last time i spoke to her was yesterday, and at that point she had no clue who was coming or how or when she was getting there!! mean while i was still in my PJ's when she showed up,... bringing chairs out to the front yard to hose them down, i opened the front door, and a car pulled into the drive way with 2 old people and i was like who are they, i dont know them!! and so went back in because i was covered in dirt and still in my pjs, so Lacy, my room mate said ill go see, so she opened the door and chris mom walked right in didn't say hi, and saying look look at one of the door prizes!! and my mom was standing there saying Hi im Laurens mom! it was so awkward, and i didn't even recgconise (sp) her, she had on dentures!!! and it freaked me out!! and she wa dressed nicer than normal , with this sparkley teal nail polish to match her shirt, it was like mermaid green!!
the fake teeth freaked me out alot, and she had a lisp with them on! it was scary, and my friend Becca said she was too! lol

so only 9 people came including Me my Mom and My roomate Lacy, and it over all was a nice baby shower, every one ate all my moms food lol

then it got to the presents, and ill skip what i got from every one else, except they were all almost duplicates and im gonna have to return them :(
Chis mom doesn't have all the money in the world but she waists her money on such cheap shit for like $40 worth, when she could og gotten something that i really needed.... i might add in that i got all the same stuff for xmas, easter and now the baby shower... all the same!!! so My mother in law gets me..... ok the only 3 use full things i got are a bottle brush, and baby Q tips and an extremely cute baby Tux.. used, but i don't care, its sooo cute...... and cheap baby soap, cheap baby lotion, cheap Vaseline Flushable Wipes, but thats for like potty training age??? so what the fuck, am i gonna keep them for 2 years???
ohh and a returned stapled package of bottle nipples and a returned stabled pacifier with the markdown price tag still on it, and the pacifier is huge, for 18 months+ but my son is not gonna still be sucking on one of those at 18 months!!! ya they were returned opened but im not sure if they were used or not.

and i don't want to be rude, but i don't want to bathe my baby in cheap stuff, not saying that i have to have name brand, but come on! and on top of it she was saying how when Chris was first born, she had to use cloth diapers because his skin was so sensitive, well if that was the case then why the hell would you buy such cheap shit
but what really bugs me is that i told Chris mom EXactly what i needed and i didn't get a single thing that i asked for
and when i brought up the idea a few weeks ago, about her and the 3 aunts getting a gift card to target, so i could get a dresser or something, she was like OHH well, i already bought all your gifts!! kinda like how rude of you to ask me that, so i was expecting like a bigger item from her, she is the mother in Law!! but nope, little shit gifts is all Tyler gets..

so when we were packing up all the left over food, she was like taking every thing, and was so stingy (sp) about all of it, she was like well i need some too, well duhh we are gonna give you most of this shit because we wont eat it! soo she left, and i had to clean up some more, and im so exhausted and so relieved that all this is over because it was alot of stress..

ohh and i had to buy all the drinks, all the chip dip, all the condiments all the ice, what the hell its for Tyler, why should i buy all this stuff and pick it all up for you??

sorry its so long... end of rant!!

My mother in law is nutty like that too. I don't know how many times she called my husband to ask what we needed and he told her over and over again that we were registered at Target and the day before the baby shower she called me from Target wanting to know what I needed and I said everything I need is on the registry. She didn't get one thing off the registry!
And my co-workers threw me a shower at work and one lady told me, that they looked at my registry but they all thought it was boring so they didn't get anything off of it. Great because I really needed a 10th pink fuzzy blanket and another pink outfit in size 0-3 months.
Oh and Target has a STUPID return policy, I tried to return 6 things, I had the reciept for none of them (no one gave me gift reciepts) and then they said they could return them if they were on my registry, I told the guy the reason I was returning them was because people didn't use the registry properly and get them marked off, so I removed them myself so people wouldn't keep buying duplicates, then I was only allowed to return 2 items and I had to do seperate returns on each of them instead of being able to combine the price and get one big thing.

Ugh, I do appreciate the efforts of all my friends and family though and am EXTREMELY thankful for everything I got and the fact that I was fortunate enough to even have baby showers, I just can't believe how clueless people are sometimes.

I hate cheap crap too.. MIL call me "particular".. I also don't like cheap baby clothes... Infant clothes... Now that my kids are older I am all about Wal-mart clothes but still use the good lotions and soap. 

Name: zoey9810 | Date: Apr 23rd, 2007 9:53 PM

and it pisses me off cuz i went out of my way to make a 3rd registry and she didn't even put it on the invitations !!, and i got nothing that i asked for, i don't need 3 things of cheaper than dollar store brand baby soap, get the kid some burping cloths for gods sake!!!
