Nursery wallpaper…& other life saving decisions

Nov. 17th, 2016

Preparing for a baby is the most exciting and stressful experience. In the process of cooking up this baby, I feel I’ve had to make a thousand decisions. Day care or no day care? Co-sleeping or straight to crib? Accent wall in the nursery or one calm color in the whole room? I’m not kidding about the last one. I am an indecisive optimizer. Read: crazy making for my poor husband. I’ve sat in what seems like 100+ gliders (for those not privy to the world of nurseries, these are the chairs that rock which I hear you sit in for hundreds of hours)…and alas, still haven’t picked one. When people ask if we have a name, I stifle laughter. “Do you know the magnitude of that decision?”, I think. “How on earth would we know that yet?” I realize, for normal humans, they probably know the name at this point. And probably have the glider in the room. But it took me three months to pick the wallpaper! And now that it’s up, I love it so so much. The room is still a bit of a shamble, but the wallpaper really makes my heart sing. I will eventually make the other decisions…I just hope I don’t have “Baby Boy” on the birth certificate.
