Lately I think to myself:
Do I need a baby mop romper?!?
How about one of these? Is this something I might use?
But I am working my way through these monumental decisions and trying my best to weed out the jungle animal and teddy bear themed junk. And reading sooo many reviews. I read reviews when I purchase stuff. And now I am picking out a LOT of stuff and that involves a lot of reviews.
Picking out this stuff is a little overwhelming, especially since I have never had a baby and I have no clue what they like and need. Something I'm sure a lot of new moms go through, I know. Unless you are the chill mom who doesn't really care. Lucky you.
Anyway, if anyone wants to tell me their opinion on what the heck kind of baby baths I should look at (do I need two? Newborn and older baby?), be my guest!
Lately I have been letting myself get overwhelmed with 1.) All the things I need to get done and 2.) The thought of the hospital and everything that goes along with giving birth. I never thought I would get to that point of getting nervous about birth because I thought I was already mentally prepared. But then the reality of more than a dozen people up in my business or shall we say "bidness" gets more real the closer it gets. And the horror stories of the poop and the episiotomies and the blood for weeks. Oh my. I knew all of this, but now "all of this" is getting nearer.
I just need to take my mother's advice and take it one day at a time. I just need to get some things checked off my list and lift some of this weight off my shoulders. Mostly I am excited. I promise. I can't wait to see the face of my baby and meet him and get to know him!
When looking for stupid inventions for babies, some pretty dumb inventions came up for grown-ups, too:
Just what I need!
