I know that my friends would never judge me (to my face, anyway), but I am having a minor meltdown over someone else’s baby shower. Weird spinsters don’t know what first-time parents need, nor do they know what a fair price is for anything baby-related. It all seems expensive for stuff that’ll get covered in poop on a regular basis. And I don’t know how important fabric types are. Or whether the books I was thinking of picking up have already been purchased, months ago, by someone else. Or why I’m putting pressure on myself when it’s not my baby. (Because it’s not my baby? Will I ever have babies? Not if I keep spiralling down the neuroses maelstrom.)
Anyway, we’re dealing with two babies. Twin girls. Which makes clothing a bit tricky. They are not going to be dressed identically (at least not all the time). But how different should things be? Should colour-coding be involved? I know it’s the parents’ problem, BUT HOW DO YOU KEEP TRACK OF TWINS?
This also means that the gender gap in clothing is getting me down. It ended up being a moot point in the end, since they only had 24M size, but there are adorable long-sleeved onesies at MEC with bicycles on them. Well, bicycles or flowers or plain white. I mean, girls can ride bikes, and boys can like flowers, but this is a shower for identical girl twins; who am I to decide who gets bicycles and who gets flowers, eh?
Not that newborns care what they’re wearing anyway. And either option’s pretty adorable.
And newborn twins, who will likely be born early, are so small that you could probably keep them in large men’s socks. Maybe I’ll just buy a couple of multipacks of those instead.
