My good friend sent me this link. The article reviews a new book that exposes modern parents' addiction to buying their babies expensive, and unnecessary, gear.
I fell prey to this while pregnant with Abby and I am totally embarrassed to admit how many items that I had labeled as "must haves" that became "never used." Not this time...less is more. Life is too complicated. Throw a preschooler and infant into the mix, and simplicity (and thus sanity) is my new "must have."
