I guess I’m not a nester

July 8th, 2008

I’m apparently not one of those pregnant women who feels the need to re-grout the tub and and scrub the kitchen floor with a toothbrush before giving birth.  Cleaning has never been my forte – I straighten and neaten but I rarely scrub.  I think this weekend was my lame attempt at nesting.  I sorted the clothes we have for Tessa into sizes and washed the newborn and 0-3 month items to be put away in her dresser once it arrives (oh I have a whole post in my drafts about Dresser Quest 2008 – just waiting for hubby to pick it up so that I can include a photo).  Acquiring said dresser was part of our weekend as well as a trip to Target for practical odds and ends (crib and bassinet sheets, burp clothes, receiving blankets, diaper cream, etc).

With Dresser Quest 2008  at an end, I think the only large items left to purchase are  the mack daddy Britax car seat once she is a little bigger (we’ll use a friend’s infant seat until then) and a double stroller (we’ll use a sling/carrier and single stroller for awhile).

If all goes as planned, Tessa will make her appearance 3 weeks from today.  I’m trying to check in often, even with these lame little posts, so no one thinks I’ve gone to have her early if I’m quiet too long.

    I “clean” in the same sort of way. Clutter really bothers me, but I can easily ignore dust. My husband however cannot ignore the dog hairballs that float around our hardwood floors, lol.

    Definitely use the sling for awhile…I loved the moby wrap! I had both hands friend to handle my crazy two year old! Best of luck!

    Thanks so much for the quickie posts. I have been checking your blog from my vacation in California! as I am surrounded my friends and kids and hoping all is going well with you and yours!

    I have no need to scrub either. Glad I’m in good company!

    I don’t scrub either! I am nesting by decluttering my house! I think it is still nesting! You are preparing your home for new baby still, even if you aren’t scrubbing the toilets with your husbands toothbrush!

    Could I get your address because I’m a scrubber and honestly my house is begging for a little alone time and I can not sit still.

    Did I mention that Emily was born on July 27?

  9. Bobbi Says:

    UM, you aren’t ready to give birth yet. You will be scrubbing before it is over—gauranteed!!!

    The infant seat will be your new best friend!!

    HI! i am so thrilled for you. It still amazes me that you struggled for so long to get pregnant and then get sabrina and now are about to have a baby of your own. What a wonderful gift. Congrats again.
