Since joining the wonderful world of Pinterest, I have been pondering on some vital life questions.
Like How can I possibly live in a house that has so many, non-coordinating colors??
Does anyone actually spend that much time & energy wrapping a present?
What is the deal with all the labels/hot chocolate mix-ins/decorative pillows/maps/wreaths/monograms?
Are people really gullible, or are they just lazy?
(I've checked out several pins before pinning them to find that they are nonexistent. No longer manufactured, never actually been built (i.e. underwater hotel in Dubai - you CANNOT 'go there someday' unless someone builds it first), not a DIY tutorial but a link to a retail site.)
But you know me - practical to a fault. Which is why I'm having such a hard time deciding on a crib for this baby to sleep in.
(Ha! Of course this post is about nesting!)
We have a crib that was given to us, and it works, but it IS quite rickety and has drop-sides, and I would really rather not use it anymore.
I've basically decided on a mini-crib, for a variety of reasons. It's the only thing that will fit in our bedroom for the first weeks/months, I've read a million reviews and MOST say their child slept in it fine for eighteen months to two years, they are less expensive than full-size cribs, the "nursery" is already cramped, I like the idea of a snug sleeping space for my baby ....
But what COLOR?!
Is it worth spending an extra $40 to buy a particular color of the exact same crib? When I don't have a definite color scheme anyway? I'd love it if all the furniture in the room was white, and I was planning to make it that way (hence the white spray-painting of the glider), but now with the toddler bed and dark dresser it would take a lot of work to get there.
Also, I am running out of nesting steam.
Questions? Comments? Suggestions?
In other "realistically speaking" news, I am not spending the 1-2 hours a day on Hypnobabies that I should be. I should be doing more exercises and visualizing and affirming and directing anesthesia than I am. I'm doing almost as much as I can, though, and am still optimistic about it. So, yeah.
