OT- Parents: am I being a snot?
DH and I picked out a crib, dresser, end table, and diaper changing rack that tops the dresser for the baby on our registry from Buybuy Baby. The crib converts into a toddler bed then a twin or full so our daughter will have it for at least 7-8 years, probably 10 until she needs a queen. If we didn't get it for the shower, we were going to buy it ourselves because we really like the design. It's painted gray with a pretty wood grain.
My mom lives out of state and pretty much buys us something every week and asked if she would mind if she got a similar but cheaper version on Amazon. I told her no because we really like the one we picked and baby girl will use it for a long time. The cheaper version is just plain wood with a different shade of gray.
Well, my best friend asked for my address last week and "it's a surprise". I gave it to her then she decided to tell me what the surprise is because "we don't need two". She ordered the crib that doesn't match the set we want but told me it matched. It got here a couple days ago and it definitely does not match.
We didn't take it out of the box. I went to lunch with her on Friday and she came inside after and wanted to look at it to make sure it wasn't scratched. I don't really want to buy the cheaper version on Amazon to match the crib and DH said we can just sell it and put that money toward the one we want since she didn't ask and bought something completely different from the registry. I think we should send it back and she can get her money back. She bought the cake and cupcakes for the shower which was almost $400 and I think that's plenty for a gift.
