Since it's Easter I thought I would try and save myself some money and go in search of a few bit and bobs that I still needed to buy in the 'Essentials for baby' column by going while I knew there would be sales on. So off I went to one of the big department stores in search of some merino wool bodysuits so that my son will be cosy and warm during what is usually a very cold Wellington winter. First I had to find out WHAT a bodysuit actually was and once that was established I was off. I found my way to the baby section and there were literally about 6 different types and brands of merino wool to choose from - 100% merino (super expensive), merino/nylon mixes, merino/polyester, merino/cotton . . . the list went on and the prices fluctuated too. I went back and forth between the many racks of these items until I started to get really anxious about it. I had no idea which was the best one to get. I was going around in circles. I started to get really flustered and my heart started beating faster, I got palpitations and felt myself just getting really stressed and anxious. I can't believe I actually had an anxiety attack in amongst racks of baby clothes over newborn bodysuits! How insane is that! In the end I left with nothing and went to a baby shop next door which had ONE rack of merino clothing and that was all. It may have cost me more but at least I know I got the right thing!
I then went home and had some chicken soup to balance out the marshmallow eggs I've been munching on. Tomorrow we are having a big roast pork at the in-laws to which I am contributing a yummy (if I do say so myself!) chocolate brownie that I got clever with by throwing half a bag of white chocolate buttons through. I think I'd better keep eating that chicken soup! Hehe.
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
