Yay I'm jumping on this week's early so I can be caught up. It's my personal goal to try and participate more
@blonde1817 personally I didn't really read any baby books. I did get the "Wonder Weeks" app, which I'm iffy on if I really believe or not, but I know a lot of people say it holds true for them. To be honest, my last BMB formed a FB group near the end of our pregnancies and that's where I got most of my advice/info
I need to find a bathing suit for this summer! Where are the best maternity suits?
Is anyone else starting to worry about how they will get everything done before baby? Suddenly were over halfway there and October just doesn't seem that far away. We have furniture to refinish for the nursery (twin bed and dresser) and I need to find someone to make curtains and a crib skirt out of fabric that matches the twin bedding. Plus you know, the actually necessary baby stuff. I know I have showers coming up but I worry that all I'll get is clothing, despite my registries. At least our crib will be here soon. It's probably just the extreme planner in me ready to get it all done!
Hi ladies, my random question is ... what are the most helpful parenting books you've read? So far I've read (most of) the Happiest Baby on the Block and I've found it very helpful, other than the fact that he's kind of long-winded. I'm realizing that time is flying by and I need to get a little bit more prepared! Also, any books that your DH liked? DH is pretty clueless about babies and needs some resources. He's factual and doesn't like the books that are cheesy or try to be overly humorous. What are your suggestions?
My random is that I'm so tired of people lambasting the parent of the kid who fell into the gorilla exhibit and making themselves feel better by saying "at least I'm not that parent"/"at least that wasn't my child". I feel like it was a shitty situation all the way around. This may be more suited to UO, but it's on my mind right now because of stupid people on my FB feed.
@ibabyloveb87 So adorable! Baby crocs are the only acceptable crocs.
@ibabyloveb87 my mom bought my DD baby crocs, and she outgrew them before she got to wear them! I was so sad! Definitely will get this next kid in them though!
Also +1 to time going way too fast. I'm trying to sell furniture in our spare bedroom so that we can buy kid furniture to move DD over and have the nursery free. So far everyone has flaked who said they wanted it. I have a potential real buyer this week, so fingers crossed it goes!
