In the mail box...
Your toddler is 21 months old!
I will NEVER NEVER NEVER use Huggies. NEVER!
***This has been eating at me for a couple of days and I only now figured out what it is that bothers me so much about it. I mean, after almost three years of this I'm pretty used to the snail mail reminders from the big "baby companies." But this one bothers me because...well..."Your toddler is 21 months old!"...that's just an absurd note. 21 months old?!?! That's not a milestone month. It's not a month that's even really noteworthy in a child's developmental growth. Three, six, twelve, eighteen, twenty-four...these are months that typically "mean something." The twenty-first month?!?! Not really an important one. So I can't help but feel like its only purpose is to taunt me.***
***And just now, sitting here doing the math in my head (because I can't stop thinking about how much this bothers me), I realized that my toddler would only be 21 months old if he was born in May. Travis was due in September. MY toddler would only be 17 months old. So to top it all off...they got it WRONG. I can only imagine that they got my name from the hospital admissions list at the hospital at which I delivered Travis (and now Myles...I did get a "Your baby is 3 months old!" mailing too). Shouldn't the hospital have some responsibility to make sure that my name doesn't get sold to those lists? Shouldn't the companies have some responsibility to make sure they're buying a "living baby" list of names before they mail off their senseless mailings with glossy photos of happy smiley babies?***
