Mama will officially admit this to you (and only you)…Mama is in complete denial that this baby is coming any day now. Clothes and baby gear can currently be found in every room of the house and are still sitting in boxes waiting to be washed, sorted and put away. There are still some items to be purchased but for now, Mama thinks the basics are covered — diapers, wipes, a bassinet to sleep in and a few pajama onesies to get her through those first six weeks. In fact, when Baby Boy was born…Mama didn’t change his clothes until there was a blowout or he started to stink…literally. It was too exhausting to wash everything and change him everyday…plus, what’s more comfortable then PJS?!
On the other hand, Mama has found time to clean out the other two kids rooms to try and make space for #3’s items and find things that they’ve certainly grown out of. With the holidays and their birthdays on the horizon, it’s that time to try and purge…in fact, Mama likes doing this at least twice a year. Also while cleaning out the closets, I find never opened NEW items that can be donated to all those kidlets that don’t have anything — Mama loves when that happens!
So back to the room and getting a place for #3 to call her own…well, in the end Mama decided that she wasn’t going to get a room of her own FOR NOW. Sharing isn’t so bad, is it? Mama was an only child growing up so Mama always had her own room. However, plenty of people didn’t and you now what, Mama is pretty sure they all survived it. The only problem now is…she’s going to be sharing it with her older brother. His room is blue and has many, many cars in it. She will for sure be a Tomboy…or not.
In order to make a little space of her own in the room, Mama is going to get new bedding for the crib…girl bedding to fit in the boy room. Here’s the choices that Mama has narrowed it down to…help Mama decorate and tell Mama which one is your favorite, pretty please?!
Mama has been coveting this set since the beginning of summer…then they sold out of it. Now, it’s back but Mama can’t decide if it’s just too out of season. Lily Nursery Bedding, $18-$99, at potterybarnkids.com. P.S. Mama also wants that crib but that’s a different story…
This set is another one that Mama has been eyeing for awhile and it’s such a modern departure from the first one. Thumbs up? Rows and Rows of Roses Crib Set, $360, at landofnod.com.
Mama saw this set on sale at a local boutique for about half the price — is it worth it just because it’s a deal at $150? Taj Crib Bedding Set at rikshawdesign.com. Another bonus…it goes great with that Calypso St. Barth for Target pouf that Mama hunted down too!
Is there anything better than the designs of Serena & Lily? And the name Lulu is on Mama’s short list (although, it’s a little close to Lily-girl and might drive a Mama of 3 nuts!). Like? Lulu Crib Bedding Set, $325, at serenaandlily.com.
Well…it is a blue room and you know how Mama feels about NYC…is this one? Skyline Crib Set, $360, at dwellstudio.com.
Ready, set, go and decorate the crib — which one will it be??? Have a great Halloween weekend! XOXO, Mama
