Over spring break, my dear friend, Melissa insisted that I start a registry at Babies R Us (she is very worried about me going on bed rest before things like this are done). She came along with me and gave lots of great advice on what you really need. We ran out of steam to head to Target so that registry was left for another day. George decided he wanted input on the registry. So today we went to Target to get started. He was totally floored about the prices for formula and diapers. The poor guy did not have the foggiest idea about what baby stuff costs, much less for four babies. Since we found out we were expecting quads, I have been nagging him about where to cut back and such, but he hasn’t taken much stock into that….until today! After our little Target jaunt, we went to Costco to pick up a few things. Funny thing, George started really paying attention to price comparisons. For example, instead of choosing real maple syrup he decided Ms. Butterworth’s would be fine. It turned out to be a very good thing that he helped with setting up a registry! He may have never realized the cost for diapers, wipes and formula otherwise.
Fun quad fact #1
A set of quadruplets will go through approximately 40.000 diapers!!!!!
