Great moments....

So, we went to a couples' baby shower on Friday night. Their sweet baby is due in early August but they've moved to Iowa and this was the chance to have a little "home town" shower for them. Anyway, the theme of the shower was "Good things come in tiny packages" because they needed to get tiny things so they wouldn't be lugging home big stuff on the airplane. I got them their grooming kit and two small books. Here is the conversation that ensued after they opened our gift:

N (mom-to be): Oh! And books. I don't think we have these yet.
J (Dad to be): These are great. Are y'all reading to the baby yet?
JW and I exchange a look. Reading to the baby? In the womb?? Seriously???
Me: "No. But the baby does watch a lot of TV."

Ahh....we're bad parents already. :)

i would think you fall under the category "normal parents". I say my parents didn't do that & I turned out ok - relatively speaking :)

Not that we are great parents, but we read to our little firl, because she seems to get suck a kick out of it. She is very active when my husband reads to her. I think I do it more for my enjoyment than her learning.
