I’m pushing the 37 week mark and starting to panic over all the things I need to wrap up at work before I take maternity leave. Just when I think I’m making progress on my To-Do list five more things get added to it. I guess I just need to face the reality that I’ll never feel like I’m 100% ready to take maternity leave – that’s life. But, I am hoping this little girl stays put for at least 2 more weeks. Besides, I don’t have my hospital bags packed yet and the car seat isn’t in the car. Speaking of hospital bags, I have a question for all of you moms. What are the top three items you consider MUST haves in the hospital bag?
Anyways, what you guys don’t see (behind the cameras) is that my house looks like it’s been inhabited by the Grinch. I hardly put up any Christmas decorations because my theory is – what goes up, must come down and I don’t want to take down Christmas decorations between diaper changes and feeding. Although I’ve been slacking in the Christmas decor department, I have been slowly working on the baby’s room. Her rug came this week and I think it really helps pull the room together. Here is a sneak peek.
Disclaimer: I snapped this shot as the sun was going down so the lighting isn’t that great.
Debs and I are going to hit up a few stores tomorrow to purchase decor knick knacks. This is one of my favorite parts of decorating because it really adds that finishing touch. Stay tuned!
