Late-in-Life Moms and Babies and "Stuff"

So, what kinds of stuff did you make sure your babies had? I blogged a few days ago about "8 must-have gadgets for busy parents." That list included things like a hi-tech stroller that cost $1,000 and a tuba light that cost $200. Anybody out there own one of those?

Jennifer Lopez is the newest celebrity mommy-come-lately and it sounds like she's lavishing lots of stuff on her twins, Max and Emme.

According to news reports, J.Lo's twins sleep on 600-count Egyptian cotton cot linen, suck on diamond-engraved rattles and already are the proud-but-unaware owners of two small Shetland ponies. Max and Emme also have their own baby masseuse, who visits once or twice a week.

An unnamed source also said J.Lo employed a color therapist to paint the babies' nursery in health-enhancing tones--aquamarine and light blue - colors which are supposed to have intelligence boosting properties.

If you've got the money, you can spend it however you want to. But me? I'd prefer my diamonds displayed on a nice bracelet or necklace ... not anywhere near my baby's mouth.
