How many weeks do you want your ad to run? 1 week 2 weeks 3 weeks Judged Believe it or not, I met my friend at a yard sale when we were both reaching for the same baby item. Now, four years later, we get our children togeth- er for play dates. My son Robby is the typical boy. He loves fire engines and police cars and wears his police badge wherever he goes. When we get together with my friend though, play is a little different. Her daughter Mary likes to dress up and play wedding. One day when we arrived, Mary immediately brought my son to her pretend alter. "Let's play wedding," she said abruptly. "I promise to love you forever." Grabbing his hand she continued, "Now you go." Looking rather stunned, Robby said the only vow he knew, "You have the right to remain silent…" (Thanks to Samantha N.) Reader Humor Laughs For Sale Duane "Cash" Holze & Todd "Carry" Holze www.ClassifiedGuys.com Fast Facts Dear Classified Guys, A friend of mine is expecting a baby and her parents sent me an invitation to her baby shower. I am so excited about going. I just love baby showers. I had two of my own when I had my children. At the bottom of her invitation was a note that said, "Gently used items are wel- come." Since I have an attic full of great things from my children in "like new" condition, I'd love to pass them along. However, I'm concerned that the note on the invitation could mean that we should bring used items as well as a gift from her registry. With all that I have stored in the attic, I could put a big package together that would wow any newly expecting mom. I'm just afraid of being embar- rassed if I misjudged how the invitation read. I can't decide if I should take the chance of giving these things as a gift or just have a yard sale like I was planning. Any thoughts? • • • Carry : After acquiring items from two baby showers, it's likely you could do both! It's amazing how many things collect from the first few years of having a child. Passing those items along to someone who could use them is a great idea. Cash : Most baby showers are not only a celebration, but help new couples acquire many of the things they will need for the first year. Since the initiation opened the door for "gently used items", you're not out of line in putting together a package from your own attic. Carry : However, if you feel uncomfortable about the idea or are worried about misinterpreting the invitation, call your friend to see if the items would be helpful. If the party is a surprise, talk to the parents who are hosting the show- er instead. Cash : We would guess that if the invitation confused you, it might have been confusing to oth- ers as well. However, it was a great idea of the parents to include bringing "used items" on the invi- tation. Carry : A large basket of useful baby items is sure to get a "wow" from your friend. Your experience with two children will be very helpful in choosing which items are most important versus those that were hardly used. Cash : Since you're simply trying to do what's best for your friend, there's no need to worry about what others may think. Besides, after all the gifts she gets at her baby shower, maybe the two of you can have a yard sale together! Ask the Guys Some kids may be chicken to sit in these booster seats ©The Classified Guys ® 02/02/14 Cost of Living According to surveys of expect- ed moms, parents spend an aver- age of over $10,000 in the baby's first year. But the spending does- n't end there. More than 52% of parents find that they need to upgrade to a larger vehicle. Nearly 32% decide they have to move or plan to move for more space. And about 10% choose to renovate or make plans to expand for the added room. Regardless of the changes, most of the parents say it's all worth it! Price of a Baby Some say a picture is worth a thousand words. However, a baby's picture could be worth mil- lions of dollars, especially when the parents are Hollywood celebri- ties. People magazine in conjunc- tion with Hello! magazine paid 14 million dollars for the first photos of Brad and Angelina's twins Knox and Vivenne. That's quite the jump from the 4.1 million paid for the photos of their daughter Shiloh. Fortunately, all of the funds for these photos were donated to a charitable foundation set up by Brad and Angelina. • • • Do you have a question or funny story about the classifieds?
