Tomorrow is my 32nd birthday. I will also be 12w tomorrow and have my 12w OB appointment. I can't think of a better birthday present than to see Lucky again.
I've been a bad blogger. This I know. I just have so many things going through my head that it's hard to pull them altogether in a cohesive thought pattern. DH and I picked up my crib from my parents house this past weekend. My parents kept the bedroom set that they used for me as a child and have graciously offered it to us. The set is in great condition, it's a beautiful wood...almost looks like cognac, but a little lighter. The crib itself is also in great condition...needs to be cleaned and polished from years of storage, but other than that, there is nothing wrong with it. I measured the distance between the slats, and it meets all the safety requirements today's cribs do. But I'm at a crossroads. Part of me would LOVE to purchase a new set for this baby. But to be honest, right now, DH and I can't afford to drop $3000 on furniture...especially when there are so many other things we KNOW we're going to need to get. I almost feel like by using my parent's set that I'm "cheating" my baby out of something. Weird huh? I know the baby won't know the difference, but I will. I guess I'm just having a hard time accepting the set as a gift. What would you do?
