Re: What do you have to do?

^ Good call! I definitely need to plan a date night with my husband (and more than just a quick dinner and, hey, let's go to Target real quick since our son isn't with us). I want dinner AND a movie. I also want to take DS to a local zoo while he's still an only child.

Re: What do you have to do?

To remember:
Drink my prego tea and take my elderberry each day.

To wash:
NB/small diapers
Wash and Lanolize all wools (25+ of them)
Prep the nursing pads

A few more fitteds
Recycle a few more wools to make sets to match the diapers (just did some cashmere dino dudes last night.)
Applique t-shirts to match the wools/ diapers.
Repair my husbands shirts and pants
Repair buttons on my sons shorts
Make a few extra soakers

These can wait because they won't fit for a while any ways!
Replace elastics in a whole bunch of Goodmama's
Add snaps to the BSRB's

To be artsy:
Learn how to swirl dye. I just got the rest of the supplies I need for this today.

To buy:
Homebirthing supplies
Gift from baby to my 3 year old.

To get rid of:
Get the huge listing of larger sized diaper stuff listed to get it all out of my house.
Have another garage sale

Around the house:
Finish cleaning the basement (his includes vacuuming) and going through the boxes
finish putting up trimwork in the kitchen, living room, and hallway
Repairing and repainting the bathroom walls
thoroughly clean the bathroom.
Fix the dryer that died last night

Around time of the birth:
Settup the birth pool
have an extra set of sheets on the bed lined with a plastic sheet
Have labor snacks prepared.

The baby has no room so the co-sleeper is where he or she will be. The dresser is already settup with NB and 0-3 mo clothing in it in our living room because there is no other place in the house to put it. I am just worried that we are not going to have enough space for the diapers and wools in there.

I would like to be able to move my Trey into the big boy's room but there isn't enough space for his bed.
