Archive for the ‘getting ready for babies’ Category

Rather than worrying about the really important things that I can’t do anything about, I’ve been thinking about crib sets. Now, see, the thing about crib sets is that I don’t know if I’m having boys or girls or a mix. I do know that I’m having babies. Three of them. Or so I’m told. Jess actually got me started on my crib bedding quest today. I stayed home from work because I didn’t feel well. We were chatting, and I’m not sure how it came up but basically… I mentioned that I hate shopping. HATE IT. And well, I think Jess about fell out of her chair. Now, how a woman with five children under the age of three has time to even care about shpping, let alone enjoy it is beyond me. But who am I to question a woman with a stroller obsession?

That being said, she has sent me a pretty varied and fabulous set of suggestions for bedding. But, we have reached an impasse. Why it matters is beyond me, since I’ve got, what? Three months before the babies get here? But I’m pregnant, and therefore entitled to obsess over the need to pick out bedding RIGHT NOW. Even though I don’t need it yet. And hey, she has great taste, and she’s been around the block with baby shopping a couple more times than me. And remember… I hate shopping. But her obsession today led to my obsession today and we went back and forth with patterns and shot back ideas at each other. And I won’t tell you who sent who this one, but I will say we need to know what you think. Which is why, dear readers, I need an opinion on this bedding set pronto:

Admittedly, it’s difficult to see in this image, so I highly recommend you go look at a full sized image before you express an opinion.

So what do you think? Your opinion matters!

P.S. Thanks for all your input on my small nervous breakdown the other day. You’ll be happy to know my pantry is now in good working order and all my Passover craziness has been restored to normalcy. On to the next task! I have a follow up post brewing, but obviously the crib set is of a much greater priority!

Edit: Let us set aside the debate about bumpers and quilts. Suffice it to say, I’m not going to put a quilt over my newborn, but toddler beds still use crib mattresses, so they WILL get used (and the set is very inexpensive regardless, so it’s not too shabby). As for the bumpers, I’m not getting into the debate. My pediatrician has no problem with them. We’re going to use them.
