After weeks of worrying and feeling unprepared, I finally finished up the nursery- which I am pretty sure that my husband is thankful about since he perceived my nesting as crazy obsession. I don't think guys have a clue what's going on, and to tell you the truth neither did I till I find myself there. "Nesting," or an uncontrollable urge to clean one's house brought on by a desire to prepare a nest for the new baby, to tie up loose ends of old projects and to organize your world, has given me a sense of readiness since time is quickly approaching and truth be told I'm not sure how ready I am to enter Mommy-dom. So since my emotions are all over the map right now and the fact that a baby is in my near future seems extremely surreal, at least I've prepared the one thing that I feel I can control- the house. My initial plans for the nursery got nixed when John announced his disapproval of my modern decor for the baby's room. I was planning on sewing the bedding, drapes and accessories but was discouraged by the fabric selection. I had some picked out that John didn't feel it would look "baby" enough, and the "baby" fabric available at the local Joann's was just too "baby." So I sold out and got the little aviators special at Babies R Us. Because of the frugality of my beloved husband (it's an endearing trait that I've grown to love... really), my initial vision of the nursery was challenged and altered several times. I am happy with the end result, despite the changes made.. Besides, it's a baby's room and as he grows older I expect near total destruction of the furniture and bedding that I put so much effort and time picking out! So take a good look now because it's probably the nicest it will ever be!
