Well my first fathers day...ya I know it really doesn't count and that was clear by the lack of a present from Allyson, but I know that I am already a Dad. So to celebrate my first father's day we got to go spend money, Matt's favorite thing to do (ya right).
We took a nice drive to Babies R Us. Now here is the thing, I am the kind of guy that actually loves to buy things for the people he loves, I am a giver, but it is really easy to get overwhelmed in Babies R Us, especially when you start thinking about two to buy for. So right now, not my favorite place to be, because it just means I have less money, and it isn't for fun stuff for the babies, its for furniture.
So, we had for all practical purposes already picked out the furniture so that was rather painless, then we had to pick out a glider. Our dream glider...way to expensive...so we went with a pretty comfortable chair that was a lot cheaper...but the kicker...purple. So I now have pink, purple and white in a room in my house. I feel my masculinity disappearing as we speak.
The sad part is you only have to pay 20% to make the order, and that made me crawl up in the fetal position and cry. In all seriousness we have very loving parents who are helping with a huge majority of the cost, so it really has not been that bad, we could not do it without them, but it is still furniture shopping, so I must complain. I also complain because it means I will be spending 3-4 hours minimum putting stuff together.
Take a look at it here...
