I had hoped that this week I would be full of news about your beautiful nursery; how it is totally finished and ready for your impending arrival… fat chance!!
To be fair, it’s nearly there.
It doesn’t actually contain any nursery furniture yet but it is devoid of any office paraphernalia.
It’s been painted (except the skirting boards) and has lovely wallpaper but the carpet is filthy and needs VAXing (at least twice) before we can begin to put your cot-beds up.
So you see! We’re almost there! ;)
On the plus side, we have now bought car seats, Isofix bases and your amazing chariot!! The buggy we chose is a Baby Jogger City Select Tandem. It is pretty amazing and I’m looking forward to seeing you in it!! It’s got lots of different positions so you should be quite comfy! It’s so exciting that we’ve finally managed to buy it. At the rate we were going, it wouldn’t have been surprising if you’d have been born and we were ordering from the hospital!! So glad that that’s not the case! I am feeling a lot happier knowing that we’re a little more prepared for your arrival.
Unlike a lot of tandem buggies, there seems to be plenty of room for both children and it also folds totally flat in my boot!! We have to pop the wheels off, to do this, but to be honest they are so easy to get on and off that it doesn’t seem like too much of a hardship.
We also bought the carrycots/bassinets, just in case we’re going to be out of the house for a while. Apparently, a baby is only allowed to sleep in a car seat for up to 2 hours. SO much stuff to take in… no wonder there isn’t a ‘parenting’ manual. It would be ENORMOUS!!! There is so much information to retain and, due to new technology, it’s changing all the time.
