Behind or Right on Time?

When we received our referral, we tried to kick nursery preparations into high gear, so convinced were we that we would be one of the lucky ones with a very fast judge. Alas, by now we know that we did not get the very fast judge which is just as well as nursery preparations came to a near standstill during Shasta's illness and hubby's much longer than expected time on crutches.

In any case, we have made up for lost time in the last few days and the nursery is rapidly nearing completion. When we received news of our First Decree last Thursday, our guest room still looked like a guest room. By Thursday night, it was devoid of furniture save a tiny rocking chair with a stuffed lion in it and a fully loaded wine rack. Hey, what more do you think he needs? ;-)

Nearly every room of our house has been affected by the preparations. Furniture has been cleared out and baby furniture has been ordered. Last night we accomplished the big one: we bought a crib! While our dear one won't be sleeping in the $6,000 crib, we don't think he'll mind especially.

I clearly remember when one of my friends was planning to go get her kids...she had just installed car seats in her car and had the police inspect that they were installed right. Driving around in her car with car seats, she said she felt like a mom!
