Dad tip #77: Setting (materialistic) expectations

There's something to be said for setting expectations early for your baby. For instance, it's important to comfort your newborn immediately when they become distressed to help them develop a sense of support and trust that you'll be there for them.

That said, the other night I was surfing around for another Daily DADvice topic and stumbled across the BMW Baby Racer. Really? My kid needs a BMW? We're just going to bypass a Radio Flyer tricycle, a Big Wheels, and even an old school Big Foot Power Wheels truck and go straight to BMW?

I suspect that even babies might identify that having a BMW that early in life might be a bit extravagant. It is kind of cute conceptually, but I think there's also something to be said for having parts of your childhood being a little more ... traditional.
