Secret pre-baby gift to me

I didn't think I would ever do this. But I had to have it. Just had to. I bought a lullaby cd where all the songs are instrumental versions of The Cure songs. I was shopping for a birthday gift for a 1 year old (bought him a wee sing collection of kids songs), when I happened upon these rock versions of lullabies. They had nirvana, and green day, and a bunch of other stuff. But when I saw that they had The Cure, and only 1 cd left I scooped it up. My best friend M, who is going through IF is the biggest Cure fan and I figured I could give her the cd once she gets pregnant. I know it would mean a lot to her. But then the more I thought about it the more I wanted it. She turned me onto that band and I really love their music too. And I want a cool kid. I want to put headphones on my belly when I get pregnant and have the baby listen to good music. And to me that doesn't mean Bach! So I'm keeping the cd. I'm sure they'll have another copy available soon, so I'll keep my eyes peeled and buy one for M. In the mean while I've stashed my version away because my husband would think me crazy if he found it.

I know. I'm bad.

you're not bad at all... I say load that puppy up on your ipod and listen away... or burn a copy for your car. Make it a gift to you AND your baby...

And, where did you find this? ;)

Anyone ever call you an enabler? : )
The store is sweet dreams toy shoppe in Berkeley. I checked but no DMB version. It wouldn't surprise if there was one available online or something though.

Ooh, the Cure is our favorite band! I'm going to have to check this out. We're actually going to see them in May in San Jose, and then the next day drive to Santa Barbara to see them again (and make a long weekend out of it - & then I'm trying to convince dh to make one more small trip to LA to see them two days later...) Sorry for my ramble, I don't get to gush about the Cure too often!

Wait - I just saw your friend's initial is M, is a big Cure fan, and is going through IF. Do we know each other???? How funny!

I've heard of this CD, and I will def. have to get it. Also a big Cure fan over here. And you're right, good to start them early with the good stuff.
