cruel

In the mail today, we got two sample canisters of baby formula addressed to J. Last week, we got a catalog for baby gear from F.isher Pr.ice. The week before that we got a sample diaper for a newborn. It seems that J somehow got herself on some mailing list for baby freebies. We’ve also gotten mailings congratulating us on being so close to our due date.

We don’t know what to do with the stuff, and we don’t know how to make it stop, but it needs to stop. It’s too hard to have this constant reminder coming in the mail, this reminder that we are not parents, that we won’t be anytime soon.

    perhaps the universe is preparing you for something and you don’t even realize it’s in the making. in the meantime, save it. you just might need it sooner than you think.

  2. vee says try returning it to the sender and ask to be removed from the maling list? she does that all the time (er, not with baby stuff, just..!)

    and jay says “jeesh!”

  3. If there is a local women’s shelter near by, they would love to have that stuff. It does sound really painful, though! If she has any idea what is sending it, a phone call should make it all stop. Hopefully!

  4. nothing like being afraid to go to your mailbox, eh?
    It took me almost a year to get the random free subscription of Fit Pregnancy to stop coming. so sorry, guys.

    Ugh. A mailbox of that stuff would make me: a) cry b) feel like puking c)send me drinking myself into a stupor.
