i actually asked not to be thrown a shower. i feel like it's bad mojo... a silly superstition, but what can i tell you.
these will be my first two (!!!). mentally, i feel prepared. i'm a very what-will-be-will-be kinda person, so i plan on just taking it as it comes... i know i'm going to be completely sleep-deprived... and i know that i'll have babies glued to my boobs for a while... but it is what it is and i'll do it. i'm not afraid, even though just everyone around me is trying really hard to freak me out
i say bring it on!!
stuff-wise, not totally prepared. we have the car seats, diaper pail/liners, a swing (got a great deal on the papasan-type, couldn't resist), and he co-sleeper. other than the cloth dipes, which i need to buy nobody knows about the cloth yet, they will be horrified
), my family is planning on getting us a bunch of clothes, the cribs, bedding and changing table. so that stuff will come while i'm in the hospital. as far as other things go, i know that people will want to buy a bunch off of the registry... i just don't know when. so i need to somehow figure out what else i need to get myself... i guess i should just get the basics... very confused.
the room is... eh. still need to get dh to haul crap into the attic. still need to transfer the rest of my sewing stuff into the guest room. gotta clean it, and install a light fixture. i work on it every day, but it's slow-going since i can't shlep heavy stuff myself.
then there are the many other tasks that i want to have done throughout the house... i don't think i'll ever be really ready......
