Hmm.. speaking of birth plans... I really want to write one but I don't know what to say.. I guess I should start doing that!
Is it normal for mothers of pregnant women to get the nesting instinct?? How bout Mothers in Law.. I have been helping my MIL clean out Dh's old room (it was such a mess!) and now shes turing it into the nursery lol.. shes going a little nutty
It looks like we're having triplets because we are so garage sale obsessed..
at first I wasn't sure I wanted a crib (I am co-sleeping for however long I do) but I decided because we're moving into a bigger place with 2 bedrooms, it couldn't hurt to have on in case baby wants to have a nap or something..
So when I saw a decent looking white one at a garage sale for 50 bucks including the matress (I talked them down to 20 hehe) I bought it..
SO then my MIL was all like.. ohhh I want a crib!! lol so we were garage saling yesterday and we saw a gorgeous natural solid wood adjustable one including the crib matress and bedding and they wanted 125 for it...
well I talked them down to 75 and bought it.. thinking "I can give my MIL the white crib!"
so we were going to their house to drop it off (we are currently in an apt, no where to put it here!) She looks in our car and says "whats that!" I'm all like ohh it's a crib!
She just points to her van in which is a equally beautiful solid wood beech crib that she said cost upwards of 700 dollars new (WOW!) that she got at a garage sale for 200 dollars (and almost got in a fistfight with a big greek guy for it)
So thats the story.. now we have three cribs, I asked my mom if she wants one, and she was like.. um ok.. I guess
My mother in law has also bough 2 strollers for herself and one for us, so we have 3 strollers there too, alongside the 3 cribs..
at least most of it is coming from garage sales!
the worst part is I am reading all these books about Attached Parenting (partly for an essay I am doing partly because I am trying to learn as much as I can before I have the baby) and I am cringing thinking about all the "baby holders" I have..
In my defence i have a sling and a co-sleeper and no bottles or anything lol.. I am just I dunno.. prepared hahahah
anyways sorry for the long post, it's just been a funny weekend. My next prenatal is on Thrus I'll post after that with how it goes!
Have a good day everyone!
