1- Visit Little Boy’s grandparents and other family
2- Shop for Baby Brother: one of our biggest tasks on our master list
Shopping Trip for Baby Brother
I outlined a few weeks ago the items I was hoping to acquire, and I can happily say that we got all of those taken care of, (although nothing from my luxury list to date). If you were wondering about the stroller situation, we ended up going with this one:
We also got some bonus items for Little Boy to prepare us to tackle some of the other items on our prep list, namely: twin bed sheets, another potty, and a baby doll!
As on all our visits, we were overwhelmed with the generosity of friends and family friends buying our kiddo(s) gifts for no particular reason. This was probably my favorite from this trip:
Coming home with all this new gear brought us to an acute understanding of why families get bigger cars! It was a bit of a struggle, but we managed to fit everything in for the ride home and hopefully will not be doing too much air travel with all this “stuff” for a while.
Other Things We Did
Other than shopping we had a very minimal schedule. We went to the playground, had a mango lassi, and tried to stay warm! We got to read some new books in English, and of course spend time with family.
How’s your shopping going? Would you take a “shopping trip” just to buy gear at better prices? How much of a difference would you need to save? Would product availability change your answer?
Update: Wondering about the baby gear we recommend? I have all that updated in this post.
