getting it set up

As excited as I am for the new baby- I am soooooo not ready. We’ve been so busy during the week that the time just flies! So I still need to paint, assemble the furniture, all the laundry from all the awesome gifts we got, and organize it all! Our living room is just the holding tank for all the stuff that needs to be put away. I mean at least I have it all. I just need to DO something with it. lol.

Anyway I am sort of posting this HOPING someone will say “hey it’s all good Kell, don’t worry you’ll get it taken care of” but if that doesn’t happen then you will all know how behind I am. Hey I got to keep it real!

And while we are on the subject I am so glad that my husband is good at making decisions- a lot better than me for reals! Yesterday we were at Babies R Us and he just saw the straw baskets we needed got 6 of them and put them in the cart. Done. Now, me on the other hand I would have looked at them and thought about it, and then left the store, checked on line, gone to other stores and then thought about it some more. Not him, he sees what we need, throws it in the cart and pays for it. It’s so simple for guys! Anyway just thought I would share and give him a few props.

Less than a month away! How are all the expecting October mamas doing? I hope good!

Hi Kelly,

Don’t worry – what you are going through is normal. At the end of your pregnancy you always feel rushed to “be prepared” yet you will never fully feel like you are. I went through the same thing. It took me a while to realize that I will always feel one step behind (especially once my daughter was here) and to just relax, go day by day and enjoy what I have and live in the moment. So what if the clothes arent all put away – laundry still gets done once the baby is here, so what if furniture is not up yet – bringing the baby home is a great way to put daddy in gear!

Enjoy every moment you have and dont forget to relax – enjoy the stress because it is brought on by one of the most beautiful things you can ever experience in life!

-Fellow mommy, Nik

Hey Kelly! I was reading your blog and it takes me back to my prego days (not that long ago!) I have a 19 month old little boy and I remember his nursery being the holding tank my whole pregnancy! About a month before he arrived I washed all the clothes and put everything away, but to be honest I didn’t even use his nursery for months because he was in his bassinet next to our bed for 3 months! So seriously DON’T WORRY! Might want to get it out of the living room lol but you’ll be amazed at all the help people will offer once he’s born! Just have oneises on hand, and the bassinet and lots of diapers and you’re good! Good luck! Everything’s going to be great!!
