Fun with Baby Registries

I'm looking forward to two upcoming baby showers, but I have failed miserably when it comes to putting together a reasonable, balanced baby registry of needs and wants. I had tried to keep it narrow, since I've gotten so much free stuff and hand-me-downs already and because I assumed that folks would rather pick out the onesies and blankets they found cute rather than follow my directions.

The result? Two sparse lists (at www.babiesrus.com and www.greatbeginningsonline.com) with many "on back-order" or "unavailable at this time" items. I had justified this by believing that the items would clue people into the direction we were going (cloth diapers, for example), without dictating the exact products that were needed.

My mother, probably rightly, was not buying my justifications and excuses. After trying to persuade me to visit a store in person and adding more, we came up with a much more acceptable solution. I just gave her my name and password for the registries, and she added twenty more products she believed we needed.

She got her shopping fix and I didn't have to mess with it. Perfect.

Thanks ma!

Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect
against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any tips?

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.

It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come

Outstanding work!
