It starts early

Nesting, that is. With Bridget I was hoping nesting would kick in early. It did, somewhat, eventually. I cleaned out every closet, cupboard and drawer in my house. And I was happy.

Now I'm only 13 weeks (or somewhere close to that) and I have this overwhelming urge to clean out.

Case in point: the other night, (after informing Luke I wanted to buy a bookcase for the living room) I was worrying to Luke about what to do with cribs/beds/pack n plays once that baby is born. Do we buy another crib, put the baby in a pack n play, put Bridget in our queen sized bed and the baby in the crib, buy a toddler bed for Bridget...?

It was quickly decided (by me) that Bridget will stay in her crib and the baby will go elsewhere. I really can't put my little girl in a queen bed by herself when there's a good chance she won't even be able to walk by the time she needs to go in it. Same story with the toddler bed.

Then comes the (ie: my) problem with guest room that we'll move Bridget's crib into. There's already a queen bed and a dresser in there. We have to get rid of something to fit the crib in. We're also going to need another dresser. All my clothes are in the guest room and Luke's are in our room. Bridget's clothes are in her closet, but I won't be able to fit her clothes and the baby's clothes in there. So we discussed what to do with the guest room bed and dresser. There was no good option.

After a few moments of silence I commented that we have too much furniture and we need to get rid of some of it. Luke asked what I wanted to get rid of.

I couldn't think of anything. Except for the fact that while I was desperate to get rid of furniture, I was also needing to buy 2 more pieces of furniture!

And now, if you'll excuse me, I have the need to go clean out the kitchen cupboards.

I lied

Just for the record, when I wrote the post about the van and said I wasn't pregnant, I was, but didn't know it.

Just so you all don't think I lied on purpose. :)
