It is said that having a newborn will complete your life as a mother, and will give greater meaning to your family life as well. And while all that seems magnificent, how many of you mothers and fathers out there didn’t feel like losing it at least once in the first few months?
All the baby screamings, constant eating, and changing diapers doesn’t seem like my type of week, but I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world. Well, maybe just for an afternoon off, a hot bubble bath, and a large glass of rose wine.
However, being a new parent does have its perks as well, meaning you get to receive a lot of gifts for the baby shower and the upcoming birthdays. And, while most of them will happen to be for the baby itself, one can only dream of something actually useful, or at least funny, for the parents too. Anyway, I made a list with some of the funniest baby gifts I know I would want to receive for my upcoming baby shower (wink, wink).
A new stroller
I know it’s an expensive gift but just think for a second about all the spending I have to on my list just by taking this baby out of me. If you want to make a considerable gift to a new parent, buy a baby stroller. These cool baby strollers may come in handy if you’re running out of ideas.
Again, not entirely for the parents, but I cannot resist buying tons of onesies and bodies for that little fellow. They are simply adorable, and some of them can make the parents laugh too. What I like is that all of them are made from soft and breathable fabrics, so my baby won’t get rashes or irritations while wearing them and looking cool.
Trust me; a cool baby onesie will be a great gift for parents too because, let’s face it, people are the ones seeing it, not the baby itself.
It may seem like childish, but there are some very cool “mom life” coloring books depicting every story that has happened or will happen to you, as a new parent. So why not cut some slacks and get a good laugh once in a while? But if you manage to perfectly color more than a couple of pages in a month, you may want to look after your baby more.
Funny T-shirts for parents
Sometimes you want to brag about your parent skills, so what better way to do so than by letting your outfit speaking for you? With just a quick online browse you will find thousands of shops selling funny t-shirts to wear while shopping, day caring, taking your child to kindergarten, and others. I got mine saying “World’s Number 1 Okayest Mom” because, well, I have bad days too.
