Who knew?


I did not realize that mommies and mommies-to-be now hand out personalized cards that say --

1) Where they are registered for baby shower gifts and
2) Who's mommy they are and their contact information

I have no issue with this. I'm sure it's efficient and makes a lot of sense. I just had no idea that New Millennium Mommies were so organized!

  2. I've never seen that before either, guess the new Mommies I know are still old fashioned.

  3. I dunno - it almost feels like they are fetishizing it somehow. I've never had kids so I can't even claim to know close to the feeling parents have for their kids and why having a card proclaiming that you are someone's mom is a big deal. And further, just to add this here for no good reason other than I want to, I don't understand defining yourself by your child. (Does that make any sense? Like, who are you when you are NOT someone's mom?)

    I just don't get it. Marketing, perhaps. You'd know better than I, Gal, about that angle.
