It is easy to get swept away in the romantic pretty-making of decorating a nursery. I get that. My sister sent me a link to this bedding today. Yep. You read that right--free shipping on a crib set for only $494!
If there's one thing that parenting has taught me, spending that kind of money for something that will be used for around two years and thrown up upon, shat upon, and peed upon is a bit foolish. Did that stop me from wanting the $375 stroller this weekend? Nope. I didn't say I wasn't a fool. I'm just a fool whose income doesn't allow for such luxuries. . . otherwise . . . there would at least be a great internal debate.
