Is it normal that my mother wants to come with us to register?
I would think that this is one of those things that we would do together…adding her would really give him the opportunity to let his mind wander, or just attempt to register for st00pid shit like Xbox Kinect…
On the other hand, it could be very beneficial as she can really help with input on the things we’ll need etc.
Anyone else have this situation?

I would go with only your Fiance and then review later online with your mom.

I would go with just the two of you. I know Darling Husband wouldn’t have given his honest input about stuff if my mom would have been standing there. Likely, the person who helps you register will also offer you advice.

@jo.lee: funny you say helps you register, I’m really freakin’ out about this BB&B person following me around.

My mom did not come with us, but went over my list the next day and help me with it. She looked up items to tell me if they were good or not. She had me add more things. I had a time asking for anything more than 30$. So I went back and added dishes and good silverwear ( not the cheap set I had put on there). So we have our lovely dishes and very nice silverwear sitting next to my new Pyrex bowls and baking set, waiting to be unboxed.

My mom drove me nuts about my registry, I can’t imagine how much worse it would have been if she actually came with me.

@AB Bride: That’s part of the problem, she’s been riding my ass about our registry
@Katielee: but I’m in the same boat, we’re young, I don’t expect to find my friends splurging more than 30 bucks, on us and will have a hard time picking things…she’ll help me with that.

I didnt go with my Fi. He’s totally clueless about what the house needs, and for the most part, really could care less. I tried going with him, and he spent the entire time wandering around commenting on prices. I went with my mom next time, and because shes an amazing chef and kitchen-gadgets extrodinaire, she told me everything i needed, and knew what was good quality or not. So basically, in my case, it was a 100times better to do this with my mom!

My mother lives almost a state away so I couldnt have gone with my mom. But on the other hand I talked with my Fiance about him coming and realized I had better do it without him. Just talking with him about it turned into an event, so yeah, I went by myself and later we both went to put on a few things that he wanted to register for. Man things. 🙂
Whats cute is as we were passing certain departments, he would ask me if I registered for this or that item. I said yes on everything he asked me. 🙂 I told him I was very thorough.
Sometimes its good to go alone on things.

@nalure Sad thing is I am not young, I’m 40! lol I have just been a struggling single mom for awhile and I had the basic kitchen stuff bought cheap and my dishes where cheap too. I had no clue about the good kitchen stuff so I needed my mom, who owns every kitchen gadget known to man, help me. She did kind of make me nuts with some of it, but I just know that is how she is and I did need help. She told me to add things that were inexpensive and some more expensive items (50$-200$) too. She said some people would want to get me something nicer than the dish towels and plastic bowls I put on my list.

I went once with my fiance. He enjoyed it, but wouldn’t have wanted to go again. A couple weeks later, I went back with my mom to show her what we picked and add a few more items. I wanted my mom’s input, but it was special to go with just my fiance the first time.
