It is a gift...
But a baby gift! Over the holidays we were given some of our very first baby gifts. The first of which was from my dear sister who gave me the cutest canvas night light by Oopsy Daisy. It is absolutely adorable. We can’t wait to put it in the babies room. Stephanie sent the parcel with my parents who came down for a visit to Toronto with Peter and I just before the holidays. I will be really honest and tell you that when I first opened this beautiful light, I didn’t immediately register it was for the baby. I thought my sister was recalling the incessant trips to the bathroom she had to make during her own pregnancy and was sending this little dangle monkey to help light the way on my own nightly (multiple) bathroom trips. My mom then delicately pointed out it wasn’t actually for me, is was for our growing little one upon their arrival. Slightly awkward. I had to laugh at myself. It was odd being given something that I got to open but was actually for someone else. Is that bad? We received a few other cute little things for the baby over the holidays so I easily now recognize the “for you to open, but not for you, and not to use until baby arrives” type gifts. I am into it now. :)
Thanks Steph! We love the light.
