What's the Best Push Prize?

What's the Best Push Prize?

When it comes to the thank you baubles that husbands can buy their wives for bringing baby into the world, the options are limitless. From the $6,000 gold charm bracelet Matthew Broderick gifted Sarah Jessica Parker after their son, James Wilke was born to Aaron Basha's enamel and gemstone baby shoes, what do you think is a fitting present for a new mother's labor of love?

Push prizes are dumb. What about an ejaculation prize? Clearly the woman wouldn't have gotten pregnant without the precious sperm. As long as daddy can do feeding, changing, bathing, holding, etc... that should be present enough. Jeez!

I said a car, but I think maybe it depends on what she needs. I don't know if everyone can afford a car or diamonds after having a new baby and I don't think going away without your newborn is right.

Really? People get gifts for giving birth? How about dad takes a couple extra turns at the midnight feedings?

Jewelry isn't at all important to me, and he knows that. He wrote me a wonderfully touching and heart-felt letter in a card. I've saved it with the little one's baby stuff. He also never hesitates to get up if the little one starts crying at 3 a.m., change an ultra-poopy diaper, or do any other parenting duties. He is truly the other half of the parenting duo, and that's the best gift I could ask for. :)

To be honest, my best "prize" (aside from the baby!) will be the house we've been scrimping and saving to buy since LONG before we started TTC even. The baby is just giving us an extra push to make it happen soon.

:oops: Well, I got a three diamond necklace to represent mommy, daddy and baby... but now I'm expecting another baby and I don't think hubby will go all out like that again. But who knows. However, a vacation sounds nice too :)

I got a ring that I wear almost every day that reminds me how much I love my family. That sounds stupid because I really don't need a ring to remind me of that, but I love the ring...any excuse to get jewelry!!!

Yeah, my husband laughed when I tried to explain how some women get push gifts. He's a great guy and I suspect he'll likely do a little something for me since I went through so much to get here, but the idea of it amused him, especially when we have shelled out so much money recently just getting ready for baby. It's not like we have thousands left over for fancy jewelry that I won't be able to wear in the house while breastfeeding a newborn. Heh.

I agree with Greggie.

Umm... nothing. *lol* The baby's my prize, and my husband puts as much effort into getting through the pregnancy and delivery as I do.
