Thanks, everyone, for the loads of great suggestions on the last post. I still ended up with a Grandma’ing book, but I also took Katie’s suggestion and got the Goodnight Moon/Runaway Bunny board book set. There were some really great ideas in there that we’ll probably be taking advantage of come holiday time. I just didn’t feel I had enough time to adequately research anything our kid is going to be using long-term at grandma’s house or put together a good survival kit. I’m thinking the grandparent survival kit is going to be great for stocking stuffers.
Two amazing things are happening this week. #1) We get another peek at the alien in my belly on Wednesday. Updates on that Wednesday afternoon I promise.
#2) This is not something we’ve discussed on the blog, but Vanessa and I have been planning a major home remodel for over a year, and this week it starts! As I type, three men are decimating our current kitchen to make room for TRIPLE the pitiful counter space and TRIPLE the inadequate cabinet space we’ve been living with for the last 3 years. It’s going to be a rough couple of months. We’ve already been without a kitchen for a week in preparation, so we’re doing a lot of eating out and microwave cooking. Great for prenatal health, I know. I’m trying to make up for it by keeping milk and other healthy items in the fridge at work. I’m looking forward to coming home to a lot of destruction today!
