Well, well, well – here we find ourselves in Pregnancy Week 36. Heading into full term baby territory. Meaning this baby is dropping like it’s hot and after next Thursday could arrive at anytime and be in the safe zone.
The mere thought sets my heart pitter pattering with excitement, fear and an incredible feeling that I am not nearly prepared enough. So I’m turning to you, blog friends and family.
I want your advice.
I want you to tell me the absolute essentials that I need to have in my household for the day Baby Angus arrives.
What is a must have?
What can’t I live without?
What is completely useless?
If I were to believe Babies ‘R Us, it seems that I need a little something from each of their departments and every one of those items costs $100. Suspect non? You don’t believe me? Check out their “New Parent’s Checklist.”
Please fill me in or I fear this baby will end up sleeping in a dresser drawer, wrapped in one of Trav Man’s souvenir t-shirts and slathered in baby lotion. Wait – did I just admit those are actual thoughts that have crossed my mind? I promise you I am taking an infant care class in a few weeks so as long as Baby Angus stays put until closer to his due date I swear that I won’t prepare any dresser drawers.
