I love when I run across a pregnancy blog and the writer has posted pictures of their beautiful nursery. The colors, the clothes, the anticipation of all that will go on there. So sweet. It's like eye candy for moms, really.
Then you have MY nursery......
Well, the crib is standing, but that's only because we were too lazy to take it down last year. It has served as more of a catch all than a sleeping apparatus. Six years old and never been slept in. I do intend to change the sheets that have been on there for the past 18 months when we quit trying to get Adam to sleep there. I think I saw some puffs of dust blow up when the cat jumped in the other day.
Then you have my lovely attempt at decorating, the birthday banner from Jacob's first birthday. I meant to remove this when we moved Jacob into his new room, three years ago, but it was so high and then we moved the crib in the way....
Sure hope Baby likes Blues Clues.
Don't you just love seeing tiny little newborn clothing hanging in the closet just ready to be worn? I do too. Too bad I don't have any. I did make some space in the closet, but it was hard. Two year old has an extensive wardrobe. He also likes to vacuum.
One day these might make their way into a box onto a shelf all neat and organized the way they should be, but that probably won't be until all my children are in college. I give up.
Then you have the letters I bought when Adam was four weeks old with all intentions of painting them a beautiful blue and hanging them on his door shouting to the world that this was Adam's room. Yeah, I never really got around to that, but they did leave a nice dust cut out on the dresser. I have no idea what I am going to do with these now. Two rooms, three kids.....who is going to go where?
So there you have it. This is our "nursery". Not at all what I had in mind when I anticipated having children, but it works.....for now.
Makes you feel a lot better about your own nurseries now doesn't it?
