So, now, thanks to this podcast, I now understand why I, generally not a big spender, am so willing to fork out big money on baby things. Because it makes me happy. Yes, apparently, money can't buy happiness...unless it's money spent on someone else.
And it's true...I find myself gazing upon all my purchases, organizing them neatly in various places in the apartment, with what can only be described as joy. Yes, this is about nesting more than anything, but if I hadn't spent the money on someone else, then I wouldn't have any nesting material, now would I? It will be even more exciting to see the items actually being used.
*Photo: Not having any photos of anything that I've bought for the baby, I'm revisiting her clothing collection. Everything in this photo was a gift from some person or group of people. Who are all presumably happier as a result of their baby clothing purchases.*
