I was highly unproductive this weekend, in terms of having anything interesting to show yous, but sometimes it goes like that. I’m embracing my time to be unproductive while I can.
We did do like 1 million errands though, which always feels nice. And made a grand master list of all the things we want to get done pre-baby.
And I found our rocking chair.
The Risom Rocker from DWR. yayyy.
I’m of the belief that one should not fill one’s house with things for baby that you wouldn’t like to have in your house if you didn’t have baby (stroller and crib and some other necessities notwithstanding). Especially when it comes to plastic things, but that’s a different topic altogether. I know we need a rocker, but I just cannot stomach one of those huge poofy lazy-boy-for-moms upholstered gliders. Apologies to anyone who has and loves theirs, I’m sure they’re terrifically functional, but they make me want to throw up a little. If we’re going to buy a rocking chair, I want it to be a chair that we will enjoy in our home forever, not just while I’m nursing 12 hours a day. Naive? Probably, but let me exist in my fantasy world while I can.
It’s expensive, and we might not end up getting it. But I’d rather spend a little more on a beautiful piece of furniture that we will keep for always. Plus I haven’t even tested it out yet. Of our 1 million errands, none took us past a DWR. So that is a project for this week. Maybe the floor model with be on sale.
We’re going to end up blowing our entire baby budget on our rocker and our stroller, but really, aside from diapers and a breast pump, what more do we need for the first 6 months?
Also, I purchased my first official piece of maternity apparel. Milestone! I am so thankful that I live in the age of premium denim. Those poor moms who had to come before us were forced to wear hideous jeans throughout their entire pregnancy. And it turns out maternity jeans are super comfy! Perfect for airplane rides! I think everyone should have a pair. They’re like denim sweats.
