Re: Last min things

I've called it the Exploder since the day he brought it home. Old habits die hard.

I still need to install the Radian in my car for the baby, but I need to clean it out again first. It's amazing the amount of crap that a 5yo can accumulate in the back seat of a vehicle.

Re: Last min things

LOL my DH calls it the same thing hun! He hates them wont buy one, my sister owns one and picks on her all of the time about it!
I agree with the crap in the back seat, right now my MIL is using my car since her truck went to crap so that is why I think we will put it in the Blazer. I had to clean out my car because MIL using it, and it was horrible. I cant believe the stuff that she stuck in the seats and under them gross!

Make sure I have enough mama pads and breast pads
Clean breast pump
Buy shirts and make " Big Sister/ Big Brother " shirts
Buy older siblings gifts from the baby

Re: Last min things

I'm due between the 10th and the 15th and I think I'm all ready mentally. We are having our son at home so no need to pack a bag. We don't have the crib up or the bassinet out or any of those things... I'm waiting because I know my dd will want to play with them. My house is a big mess and it drives me crazy but with a 22 month old running around there isn't too much I can do. As soon as I organized a room she ram shacks it. And my back hurts and it is hard to bend down to pick things up. I'm trying to take things easy.
Anyway, We are excited about the new arrival but too busy it seems to worry about loose ends. It doesn't really matter anyway we co-sleep so who needs a crib or bassinet. All his tiny clothes have been washed and folded and nicely put in labeled bins months ago. His newborn diapers are as cute as ever waiting for the day they'll get used. My parents are arriving next week to help out. I'm not stressed just worn out.

cleaning the house is just one of those things we probably all don't enjoy doing! I take 1 or 2 rooms a day to clean and the rest of the stuff I just organize ( toys everywhere, leftovers in the refridge from last week,etc). Give your kid some playdoh or markers at teh table and work around him. It usually helps us.

Re: Last min things

I still have a LOT to do!

1. Clean out my car and install the infant seat. My DD has a ton of stuff in the back.

2. Find my breastpump. I know its gotta be in the basement, but where?? I cant find it and I dont want to pay another $300 or whatever for a new one.

3. Finish my short term disability papers.

4. Get my taxes done before this baby gets here.

5. Purchase a few more baby things: swing, bouncy seat, and gates are on the top of the list.

6. Pack my bag for the hospital.

And theres more, Im sure. Thats just all I can think of so early this morning.

Re: Last min things

I'm due today (HAPPY DUE DATE TO ME!) and I am so ready to go it's absurd. Diapers are washed and ready to go. Clothes and blankets and other accessories are washed and in the dresser, crib is up (babe will sleep in our room in the crib) bedding on, carseat installed, bath stuff bought, all misc. stuff bought, house CLEAN (I did that like a woman posessed yesterday; including shampooing carpets), my post partum items purchased including my cloth nursing pads and mama pads. I've even gone so far as to set up a nursing station next to my recliner (basket with nursing pads, happy mama spray, chapstick, easy packaged snacks etc...)

I figure I'm so prepared I'm going to be pregnant forever, it's the mamas that have things left to do that get to go early!!!
