Here’s a tip: Don’t order your birth announcements without having AT LEAST two people proofread them. Preferably people who have not given birth in the last week and are consistently getting more than 3 hours of sleep at a time. Otherwise, there’s a chance that in your bleary, half-awake state you might accidentally forget your child’s birthday. The child you have just given birth to. Then you will feel like a terrible, horrible mother. You might cry. You will definitely have to throw away 45 perfectly nice cards and sheepishly call the company back to have them re-printed with the correct date.

But if you are lucky, and if you ordered your announcements from, you might not have to pay for your stupid mistake. The lady on the phone might laugh and feel bad for you and say she’s definitely been there. And instead of charging you again, she’ll just send the new, CORRECT announcements out for free.

I highly recommend I am totally thrilled with their excellent customer service. Here’s the announcement all my friends and relatives will be getting in the next couple days:
