baby clothes shopping

May 2nd, 2013 at 07:22 pm

I did something today that I do not do very often; I went shopping.
I went shopping for baby clothes. My oldest granddaughter is having her baby shower this weekend and I wound up buying the new baby 4 new outfits. Now, I don't really believe that babies need a lot of clothes; they out grow them too quickly.
I do admit that I did my shopping at the dollar store. I think they have some cute things, but inexpensive. I am not really being cheap. I am going to give her a check to buy the things she really needs. (like diapers and formula) Gosh, it is expensive to have a baby these days.
Did anyone besides me use cloth diapers??

Happy May day!

May 1st, 2013 at 05:13 pm

Today is the first day of May. May has always been my favorite month. I guess that is why I was married in May. (But it helped that my dh proposed to me the first week of April)
