Buy Buy Baby

The other night, the Atomic Wife and I visited a store called Buy Buy Baby.  In the same fashion as Stein Mart (which does not sell steins) and Crate & Barrel (which sells neither crates nor barrels), Buy Buy Baby does not sell babies.  What they do sell, however, is everything and anything you need for your baby and/or toddler.  (I had to ask one of the employees what a toddler was... and I looked it up on Wikipedia as I'm typing this to make sure she wasn't messing with me.)  I got schooled on the various types of strollers (4-wheel vs. 3-wheel), car seats (who knew there were so many different types?  Not me.), gliders, cribs, and mattresses.  2 1/2 hours later, we walked out of there looking like zombies... and we didn't even get through 1/2 the store!  If Rick, Daryl, and Hershel saw me walking out of that store, they'd probably put an arrow through my eye socket.

Here's a photo I took of the stroller and car seat section:


After looking at this picture, I know what you're thinking.  My response is: "That's what she said."

We found a stroller that we both liked.  It's called a B.O.B. (which stands for "Beast of Burden", not "Baby on Board".  Seriously.)  It has 3-wheel motion... not the type that gets Ice Cube "mo bounce to the ounce" in his 64' Impala.  I'm talkin' 3 wheels... inflatable wheels.  No daytime running lights and no speedometer, but it does have optional cup holders for my 40oz of Colt 45.  "If the fo' don't getcha, the five will."  If the baby is a boy, maybe we'll name him Billy Dee... or Lando.  Yes, Lando!  (The aforementioned is a prime example of how my mind gets off track.  Somehow, we went from Babies --> Strollers --> Cupholders --> Colt 45 Malt Liquor --> Billy Dee Williams.  Poor kid.  Poor Lando.)
