no p -word talk but baby prep talk
OK our bedding arrived yesterday and I truly just think it's adorable. I am very fond of it. After a much debated crib/bassinet/convertible crib conversation, we have decided to go with just a plain ole crib. So the great debate goes as follows:
My parents were originally going to buy us the nursery set. My father has now decided that my son (his first grandchild and first the boy on our side of the family in quite some time) needs a toddler race car bed. Think we are skipping a few steps? I mean, I do, but do not care to crush his excitement at all. SO whatever ... he instructed me not to buy a convertible crib because as soon as a toddler bed can be used, he is buying the race car bed ...
A few weeks ago E's mom called him and told him that she found a crib/changing table at a yard sale and wanted to buy it for us. He nicely explained to her that we wanted new furniture. Last night we were discussion that we really need to start crib searching and that maybe his mother would like to send us the money she was going to spend on the yard sale pieces to us and we could use her money to put toward our crib purchase. I didn't think he would really call and ask nor did I think she would agree to this - BUT He called AND She agreed. Yah I am so grateful.
So this weekend, our mission is to find a sturdy, non convertible, well made standard crib. Now that we have the bedding, I feel more confident in picking out what color will look best. I have lost all imagination apparently. I could not "visualize" what would look best. Usually I am pretty good at picking decor out but recently, I have lost that knack. If you have a suggestion on color, name brand, store, experienced crib purchaser, anything ..please leave me a comment
On a side note - My husband told me that his co-workers were discussing their pregnant wives (because apparently the public safety workers do nothing but pro-create - Lucky, you mean people just decide to have kids???!!) OK sorry ..tangent - all of the men agreed that there is just that "something" about their pregnant wife that makes them think that she is "one haute momma". (that is the g-version of what I was told last night) I just WISH that I could have been a fly on the wall for this discussion. I mean can you really see these guys on duty discussing this??
