Push Prezzies

I just read about this phenomenon in the New York Times, called the "Push Present", where large baubles {and in one case a giant piece of art} are presented as rewards for childbirth. I will defer judgement and let you read for yourself. My dad actually gave my mom one when I was born, but it wasn't anything big, it was a teeny diamond pinkie ring that she gave to me when I turned 16. It's sweet, but I still don't know how I feel about the whole thing. I totally understand wanting to mark that momentous occasion, but I also think that the baby might remind you of said occasion from time to time. Like every 30 seconds.
