To sell baby stuff or not to sell baby stuff, who knew it was such a big decision.

Well we are at 8 months and our daughter is now growing out of most things that we have relied on for her whole life.  Hehe whole life, things like the “Rock and Play” the “Bumbo” My wife stopped breast feeding so that $300 Medela travel pump could go.  How about the 4Moms Momma Roo?  It was totally awesome but wow that was fast.  She got to use it for 6 months and it’s still like new.  So now what? 

My buddy just called and told me his family was growing by one and couldn’t help feeling really excited for him.  “Congratulations’ Bro you’re an animal” So do we want to have another baby?  Or can I sell this stuff on E-Bay and reclaim parts of my house that resemble a reality show called The Baby Clutter Freaks.  Did I mentation that when the conversation begins to lean towards not having another baby I am faced with winning the booby prize of a vasectomy.  Now I know everyone says it’s the equivalent of drive through surgery.  But in the words of Tony Soprano “why do you want to mess with god’s creation down there”?  To be honest God has nothing to do with it just a pure natural fear of knives cutting my balls that’s all.   So as you can see there is a much larger question and why do all decisions now that we are parents seem so serious?  I went from wanting to sell the Mamma Roo to spending the better part of my weekend sitting on frozen peas with no hopes of procreating again.  So I guess it’s something to consider. 

I have updated my E Bay account taken some sweet pics and now nothing… Why am I hanging on to this?  Have any of you had the experience of turning into a blubbering fool while watching some commercial featuring a father and child. In the past I have written that  having a daughter has softened me for sure.  Frankly it was long over do so I am not complaining, but as my blog name suggests it is has been and still continues to be an “adjustment” I welcome any advice from those who have gone through this and are now on the other side.  Please just keep mind when it comes to children I’ve become a six foot three two hundred and 40 lb. marshmallow.  Thanks for stopping by and HAVE FUN!!

Do You MamaRoo?

Space Chair

My wife finally convinced me to pop on this crazy baby item known as the Mamaroo.  It’s by a company called 4 Moms.  Remember when I said our house is over run with baby, its spreading pretty much on a weekly basis.  Now we have of course, added to our growing inventory the new Mama roo too. 

OK this thing ended up being pretty darn cool.  First off my wife put the whole thing together while I took a nap. That was just the start to the wonderful bliss that has become the Mamaroo.   How does it work?  Awesome!  It has like 5 settings from car ride to ocean. Babies really like to be moving constantly.  And this thing achieves this type of motion without effort.  I can also attest that  my back dosent mind its constant presence in our living room.

Actually it is really neat.  Looks like a super space chair and has an I pod jack so we load it with her favorites, and she cruises nice and smooth.  Great for a nap time as the motion will most times rock her back to sleep without issues.  I almost felt guilty the first day or so as it worked so well it gave daday a couple nice breaks.  After this you will begine to wonder if they make one of these for adults.” I wanna rock all nice and chill to music in a space chair”.

 I thought I would do a post on it in helps to inform anyone else that may be on the fence on the purchase.  We are glad we bought ours.  and our daughter really does love it so thumbs up for the Mama Roo.  So yes we do MamaRoo. I do do do..

  Ok…I  just really wanted to put that pic up, sorry Honey….
