Now that July is over (sigh of both sadness and relief at the same time), I suppose it’s time to start getting ready for Boy. Remember last December I wrote myself a letter about not going crazy this year with OCD nesting-ness. Well, I’ve taken that very VERY seriously. So seriously in fact, that I’ve avoided even my normal standard of “get it done-edness” in order to keep myself on the lazy side of life.
But Wyatt’s nesting instincts have kicked in at high speed. Yesterday he decided we needed to go through the storage closet to dejunk. Let me be clear, he was helpful and respectful, so I appreciate his motivation. It helped me to start on my own projects (FINALLY) today, starting with cleaning out the nursery.
The toys have all been moved/rearranged, shelves and baseboards cleaned, and crib wiped down. I even did some shopping today and got Boy’s ‘coming home’ outfit and a few other little things. And when I was at the grocery store, I bought a few decadent chocolates for myself for the hospital. (And then I came home and researched what other gifts I could send myself during my stay 😀 Hey, this is likely my last time having a baby, I better live it up!)
And so we are starting. I plan to spend all of August (except for Tuesdays) in lazy, non-crazy, exciting preparation for Baby Boy.
