I was thinking about the baby gear thread, how I was fairly minimalist the first time around and didn't really buy anything. I'm not buying a lot now, but I'm being pretty intentional about it and I am buying and doing some things I thought were frivolous and stupid the first time around. Silly me! :)
That got me to thinking about things I am going to do for myself later on to celebrate becoming a mama again. What are you going to do for yourself?
I'm planning on having lots of flowers. DP will almost certainly bring me some, and I will probably be able to poach some sweet flowering branches from the city. No one is going to yell at the huge pregnant lady!
Get some nice maternity items. There is a lot in the goodwill now.
Bottle of decent champagne for a toast
Have a friend come over and take some nice pictures with the new baby (last time we just had a few blurry shots from the hospital)
Going to do my makeup before I get my picture taken... might even get crazy and braid my hair. I thought that was a vain thing to do before, but really, I like wearing makeup.
Take a bazillion rose epsom salt baths....
Let DP know I'd love some little token "you had my baby, again" gift. ;)
