Chick Has Issues

It's 3:30 in the morning, and what is Crystal doing?

Freaking out over fabric for crib bedding for a child that is probably not yet even conceived and for which she is definitely not yet approved! Emailing fabric graphics to friends, hoping they will shoot her and put her out of her misery.

Do you know how hard it is to find gender neutral bedding that doesn't make me want to barf?

"Ok, we'll just make it", she says. Then she looks at multiple fabric websites and again wants to barf. She is now freaking out, worried that her not-yet-even-existent yet child will never know the joys of a beautiful nursery. Upset that the one fabric she does love is out of print. Out of print!? Popular fabric... out of print. In what universe does that make sense? Oh,
the NERVE!

Yes, yes. Chick has issues.

LOL. I'm going to give you some of my best mommy advice. The prettier or more expensive something is, the more likely baby will spit up or poop on it. It's almost guaranteed!

And...maybe this was just me...with my first I bought a lot of gender neutral stuff ahead of time..yellows, greens, etc....but when she was born I totally wanted the pink stuff!

Lol! You crack me up!! We avoided the bedding issue altogether, Mary sleeps with us :P

Have you read "My sister's keeper"??
I'm still mad at the ending of that book and I read it at Christmas!

Crib bedding is expensive and not worth the money to me. Babies can't sleep with blankets or crib bumpers anyway :) It's fun to plan the nursey though; I definitely understand.

Umm, I hope this bedding is going to appear on your shower registry ;) You are registering, right?!?! :-p
haha. sorry

I feel you there- I have SO many baby related links on my computer, and NO BABY in sight.

That's my wife, ladies and gentlemen!

My vote - shouldn't we at least wait until we know if it'll be a boy or a girl before we try to decide how expensive of what color we'll get?

I know - good to start looking now :)

I like gender neutral unless it's a girl. Then I want PINK. PINK, PINK, PIIIIIIINK!!!
