ok, this isn't a serious problem, I'm just wondering if anyone has been in this situation and how they handled it. I personally think it's kinda funny, but I would still like some advice :smileywink:

So, I guess first I should explain that I am a little over 7 weeks pregnant with my first baby =) and I am SO excited!! One of my best girlfriends is really into Hot Topic... I guess I don't understand because we're 25, and not in high school anymore. lol. We still see each other ALL the time so she knows that I'm not interested in that store or anything from that store; even though she still shops there religiously. lol

Anyway, she posted on my husbands facebook (I don't care about that... we're all good friends) that she's already planning a shopping trip and that ALL of my gifts will be coming from Hot Topic. She didn't tell me this, she told my husband. So now, I'm thinking "oh no! What if she actually buys a bunch of baby clothes from that store!" I don't have anything against it, but I really don't want my newborn in band t's. =/

I know she's probably just thinking that it would be really funny to do this, but I don't see the point because I'm not going to allow my baby to wear them and we'll just have to take them back. Did anyone else have something like this happen? How did you handle it? She's SO happy for us and SO excited that I don't want to burst her bubble, but I also don't want her to waste her money on something that we will never use.

It is pretty funny, but pretty annoying at the same time. While its nice of her to want to buy the baby presents, they should be things that you will use. You will get a lot of gifts that you don't like or love and either return them and just say that they didn't fit the baby, or hang them in the back of the closet and give 'em right back to her when its her turn to pop out a kid!
