it’s been one of those weeks. the kind in which i’m grumpier than our resident toddler (which is impressive. i’m blaming it on the hormones). and yet. this week happened to bring a few excellent things too. like my discovery of space saver bags, nursery prep, and a stroller epiphany.
lets start with the genius behind space saver bags. i’ve been storing loads of old babe clothes in giant plastic storage buckets which has resulted in a hamster like maze in what little basement we have. now i’m on a mission to space save the whole house. from old bedding to non-maternity clothes, to baby gear nothing in the house is safe.
things are finally starting to arrive for kenz’s nursery. the room is clear and slowly slowly starting to resemble something suitable for a small child. lex has discovered that she can climb both into and out of the crib. so once the babe arrives we’ll be putting lex in charge of wake-ups and late night cuddle sessions.
i’m slightly embarrassed to admit how many strollers we own. i somehow convinced myself we needed each and every single one. and once we got looking to adding more to the fleet i got in way over my head. so being the problem solver that i am we’re selling the fleet and have invested in ONE (yes one!) stroller to rule the kingdom.
turns out the uppa vista 2015 comes out in a few weeks and happens to solve each and every single stroller need we have. single. double. converts back and forth easily. skateboard. fits with our OG car seat. easy to fold.
its the end all be all for our stroller life. and i cant wait for its arrival to our doorstep next month.
we’re also starting a brand new morning routine. one that hopefully wont result in tears because lex makes getting dressed into an olympic sport. although there might still be tears because it involves me waking up at 6am before lex makes her debut for the morning. My alarm tone is “blurred lines” though- and if that isn’t the best way to start the morning I don’t know what is.
This weekend we’re laying low. Like really low. Rumor has it that “in sickness and in health” vow we made when we got married is being cashed in on by a husband of mine who is painfully hopping his way through the house because he injured his knee while “stretching”. I knew triathlons were dangerous and now I have solid hobbling proof.
ill leave you with lex’s zoolander face. because she’s been working hard on it in the mirror.
