• Dusted, vacuumed and mopped DH's and my bedroom
• Thoroughly cleaned the master bath
• Dusted the dining room
• Washed and put away laundry
Today I got a BIG task crossed off the to-do list.
The baby will be co-sleeping with us, but he/she will ultimately be sharing a bedroom with our two year old. I had to do a MAJOR re-arrange/re-organize to make it work.
Here's what I did:
• Made a Target run and a Whole Foods run
• Hung an over-the-door organizer on the back of the bedroom door as my solution for cloth diaper storage, as DS's cloth diapers take up all available drawer space. Got all lotions, soaps, creams, snappis, etc... in there.
• Bought and assembled a bookshelf. DS's books had been in a basket on the floor. His puzzles were stuck in various places throughout his room. And there was also a tall narrow dresser which had a lamp, a sound machine and a few other things. I moved the dresser in to the closet to make room for the mini-crib, so I needed a place for the lamp and sound machine. So all of his books and puzzles are organized on the bookshelf and the lamp and sound machine and his piggy bank and such are on top.
• Assembled the mini crib that we used with DS
• Re-arranged all of the furniture to make everything fit
• Swept and mopped
The room actually looks really good. This was really the last major thing I needed to do, as I've had all the baby supplies, baby clothes, baby laundry, etc.. done for weeks.
Now it all comes down to staying on top of the cleaning. I really, really want the house clean when I go in to labor. I'm having a homebirth and I know I will just feel the most relaxed and at ease if the house is clean. Right now, its in really good shape. Tomorrow I need to dust and vacuum the living room, clean the small bathroom and mop the kitchen floor. And probably do a load of laundry.
I'm feeling really good about the state of things. Gonna go do some knitting with a heating pad on my aching back.....
