We love our children. That's a given. But we don't love the fact that NOBODY knows how to follow a registry anymore. So we ended up with fourteen different patterns on a million different kinds of baby crap. Around the eight-month mark, we just donated every single piece of baby gear and bought the Bloom Coco Baby Lounger ($200) to replace all the farm animals, sea creatures, gender-neutral plaids, and overtly-girly butterfly motifs. It ended up looking a little pompous next to the rainbow play mat and the multicolored block castle. But we prefer pompous to passive any day.
