The great crib debate of 2009

ding, ding, ding

In this corner we have Andrea, purse strings clenched tightly, vying for a free crib offered by very kind friend.  Her strengths include:

  • its free
  • its free
  • its safe
  • what more do i need? its free

In the opposite corner we have Elise, stomping feet on floor, wishing she had just purchased the crib when she had a chance.  Her points include:

  • the free crib is not white
  • and, its not cute
  • free crib may be safe now, but we wont be alerted to recalls in the future
  • very kind friend has not yet transitioned her toddler out of the free crib
  • i really, really want the other crib

Place your bets now people.  As history shows, there is a clear favorite 😉

  1. Get the new one. You will be so much happier with a fresh, new, safe crib. I promise. Team Elise!

  2. new ones, hands down. cribs aren’t worth enough $$ to counter the rest!

  3. Sorry, Andrea… Team Elise!

    The crib is such a focal point in a nursery – you don’t want to have to look at one every day that you don’t think is attractive.

  4. I vote Team Elise. (Which is odd, because we may be using a hand-me-down crib. But, we both think it’s cute, safe and I’ll be on the lookout for recalls before we take possession.)
