This morning it occured to me that the diapers are organized and neither are the toys. (toys? I'm worried about the toys?) So now the baby/toddler room is a stinkin' MESS. Toys are everywhere. OMG. Because the newborn cares about toys, right? WTH? Or because my 2 year old wants to play with every toy we've ever owned today?
Diapers had to get washed and washed and washed and I've got more diapers on their way that I'll have to wash and wash over the weekend. Ask me why I'm doing it twice.... lol. (Honestly its two loads, but its still funny to me)
We haven't even decided where the baby is sleeping. Seems logical I know - but between sidecar-ing the crib (taking it apart to get it out of the toddler room, buying a 3 sided basinet or buying a side rail for the bed - oh and then there is the option of using the pack and play in our bedroom. And we are moving my 2 year old son from the crib to a toddler bed, but its not arrived yet. So I can't even pretend to do something about that.
For clarity, my kids will be sharing a room. Well except for that the babe will actually be sleeping with me. But her stuff will be in with her brother's. Its their room.
Blah blah blah. I feel so unorganized. Now after reading the unprepared thread, I'm worried that I'll go into labor and have to leave the stinkin' room so messy. :
Vanessa... Happily married to a paramedic - celebrating 10 years of marriage! Mama to one crazy 6 year old transformer and one chatterbox 4 year old princess. Daycare provider to many jumping beans I'm expecting my third in late November.
I dont' know if I could homebirth again. Just trying to keep the house clean...never knowing when the blessed moment will be, has made me totally exhausted!
I still have to steam clean the carpets, because of course this baby will crawl as soon as it's born.
I would recommend a pack n' play. I sleep with my babe until he is too rowdy in bed then I put the pack n' play up near the bed. So, if he wants to nurse I can get him quickly and nurse him...usually he ends up in bed with me anyways. I keep the pack n' play in my room it makes it easier for naps too.
I also have a bassinette. I think it's a waste of money. My babes out grow it by 4 months and then it sit in my closet (taking up space) until the next wee one comes along. I am thinking about trading it in.

Today I'm buying magic clean eraser and windex, and my two older boys are going to clean all the low windows and the crayon off the walls in exchange for beads i'm getting good at delegating
Vanessa I can so relate. I was freaking out over our garage. We finally got it cleaned a couple of weeks ago. A good friend said to me, um you planning on keeping the peanut in the garage. Well no and duh, can you see the baby's reaction when we come home and she sees the garage and what a mess it was.
