Baby Mail

The mail arrived the other day just as it arrives everyday, minus Sunday. 

"BOX FULL! Please empty your mailbox." Were the instructions written on an orange postal service notice taped to my front door.

The mailbox was packed of the usual...bills, fliers, coupons, catalogues, ads, and junk mail.  What was unusual were the three pieces of baby mail shoved inside.

"This is random?" I thought as I quickly thumbed threw my mail, walking away from my mailbox. "A baby magazine? Hmm..."  I dismissed the magazine. It was obviously delivered to me in error.

I dumped the pile of mail on the kitchen table and began sorting it into the usual piles. Bills, coupons, ads, and trash.  That's when I came across baby magazine number two.

"What the heck!"  I said to myself.  "Whose mail is this?"  I inspected the white bar coded address boxes in the bottom left corners.  They both read: Nicole Garcia. I also received a welcome packet from Similac. No...I'm not expecting.

My husband walked in the door.

"I see you got the mail," he stated as he read the orange postal notice left by our mailman. "It says we have a large envelope or magazine to pick up," he informed me. "You want me to go get it?"

"No...if it's anything like what was delivered," I handed him the baby mail, "they can keep it!"



  1. I guess it's better unexpected mail than an unexpected pregnancy! LOL...I love all of your posts!

  2. Maybe your husband got you the subscription as a surprise...because he wants more...marshmallows.

  3. Haha...that's funny. Wonder, wonder...

  4. I keep getting baby emails and baby mail, but I know the cause of mine, I let my sister use my email and flat address to sign up for some freebies. It's starting to build up in my porch...I should really collect it all up and dump it in her porch one day.

  5. That's kind of scary. Hope it's not a sign.

  6. That's some proactive advertising lol

  7. Hmmm......hopefully it's not kismet.

  8. It must be a message from God. If I were you, I'd go by me a pregnancy test kit soon.

  9. Just came over from the crazed fan week end hop. I have to admit this is pretty funny. Also read your dog post underneath. I have done the same thing your hubby did. My husband was so mad. haha. Well I am following now.

  10. Thanks for following me back!

  11. Awww...come on. What's one more? ;)

  12. Oh--I get more junk mail that I often wonder--where is this coming from? If I start getting baby mail or magazines I'm going to pay to have the postman's eyes examined--I'm 60!!

  13. Maybe you got so much baby mail because 'the Man' thinks you need to be having a baby ;) I got formula checks a few years after one kid... must be the formula company thought I should be adding to the world population again.

    I'm here from a weekend blog hop. I'm a new follower and I'd love to have you come visit me at Making Ends Meet sometime soon.

  14. Love the pics on your blog! Did you use a film camera with black and white film, or a digital camera that you did digitally things with to get it black and white? Looks good! Voted for you again today on the Top25! Good luck!
