Gee, thanks!

Look at what I got in the mail the other day…


Toys R Us was so thoughtful to remember to send me a ‘Happy 1st Birthday’ card.  What a nice reminder that we are quickly approaching what would have been the Green Beans’ actual due date.

Gee, thanks Geoffrey!  You just made my day.


  1. I wonder if there is a way to cancel those things. I signed up for so many different things when I was pregnant with Nathan. There seems to be so many reminders. ((hugs))

  3. Yikes...Geoffrey is not the smartest of giraffes...sorry this happened to you. Many hugs!!!!! Hang in there!

  4. I'm so sorry. Those freaking things never seem to end. I am so so very sorry.

  5. I swear, they need to make a cancel button on all those sites. Sorry Lauren, big hugs to you!

  6. Lauren, I spoke to toys r us. I hope that's ok, but I didn't want you to have to call and explain. I really hope I am not overstepping my boundaries, but I just didn't want you to have to do it. I understand if you're mad. But the thought of you calling them just sort of seemed cruel. I'm sorry you had to get this card today. Please know that I think about you, Josh and the green beans often!

  7. I'm so sorry you got this reminder in the mail. :(

  8. I am so sorry that that happened.

  9. So sorry girl. That's just... Well, it must have been so hard. Hugs!

  10. Bastards!! Did you cancel the membership before this??

  11. I HATED getting things in the mail like this when Grady would have turned one. Made me just want to scream! Hang in there!


  12. I've never really like that place! Stupid Geoffrey! HUGS!!!

  13. they are the WORST!!!!! (((hugs))) my least favorites were the reminders from Mutual of Omaha telling me "not to forget to sign up for life insurance for my babies!"

    I got those a bunch of times in the mail...


    Hang in there... (((hugs))))

  14. I just got that exact card yesterday!!! This was AFTER I emailed them and asked to be taken off of any mailing lists they have. I told them straight up that my daughter died and that I know they couldn't have known that but I'm tired of gettig things in the mail that are hurtful reminders. I thought that would have stopped the card from coming but I guess Geoffrey is really persistent. So I sent another email...a little rude this time and told them that I just go a birthday card in the mail for my dead baby and what else do I have to say to you people to make this stop. We'll see what happens, but I guess the damage is done. Long story short, I feel you pain.

  15. *tears* this is a classic example of Life's Emotional Triggers. So sorry you had to endure this.

    Sending you love and a BIG HUG this very minute.


  16.'d think they'd be more careful of those things. Well you handled it great, hang in there Lo!

    Love you!!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
