Yesterday we went to a baby store for the first time. I’m just not the type to “go shopping” when I found out I was pregnant. All the gear and especially the prices made me a bit dizzy. Apparently, most first time parents spend thousands on baby stuff.
Anyway, my mother (who now calls herself grandma-to-be :-)) wanted to buy her first grandchild a big present. Actually, we already agreed on her buying us a baby stool for the kid. We found out that a Tripp Trapp stool is the most durable thing one can have. It’s also very difficult to get them second-hand because one can use them for the first decade of a child’s life. Friends have had theirs for over ten years and are still using them. So we went to the store, grandma bought a white version including new-born carrier, a toddler harnas and cute lining.

It’s a big present indeed, isn’t it?! We’re very happy with this gift. It was also a bonus that the chair was on sale at this specific baby store. Moreover, my mother’s best friend works at this store and through her she got an extra 15% discount. The whole package cost granny (and gramps…he’s not the type of person to go shopping at baby stores) €320. I would have really offended them if I didn’t take the gift or go shopping this big present for their first grandchild.
What would you have done?
