It seems like I’m about 5 seconds pregnant. I’m round 13 weeks, however nonetheless. I sincere to goodness can’t cease buying child stuff. And I haven’t even been in a single child retailer but. I’m a bit of afraid of what would possibly occur after I do.
You see, whereas this can be my husband and my fifth child, it’s our very first woman.
My boys, so thrilled to share the excellent news.
The opposite day I bumped into our native farm provide retailer for a feed bucket and got here again with a darling little woman outfit, and no bucket. To my protection, they didn’t have the actual bucket I wished. We farmers are choosy like that, I assume.
Our present youngest, Charlie.
This one incident isn’t actually alarming. However it retains taking place. I bumped into our native furnishings retailer per week in the past for an finish desk, left the shop with no finish desk however I did discover a great armoire for my child woman’s nursery…to place in our new home that gained’t be carried out till Christmas.
Yikes! I can’t cease!
I really feel completely responsible for thus many causes. First, I by no means had buying fever with any of my boys. Second, I’ve determined to get all new child gear for this babe, despite the fact that the stuff Charlie used solely a 12 months in the past might be tremendous. And third, I really feel like it’s nearly too early to start out buying something. Like these individuals who begin loading up on Christmas stuff proper after Halloween, the second Goal hangs that crap up. Just say no, individuals.
Anyway, when the heck is it okay to start out buying issues? Instantly after getting a constructive urine take a look at? After your first physician appointment? While you begin exhibiting? After your child bathe? What’s the socially acceptable factor to do right here? Additionally, when does the buying, or the urge to purchase, cease?
I do know as a soon-to-be fifth-time guardian, I ought to have this all down. However, I completely don’t. And, I really feel like being a girl-mom comes with an entire set of latest guidelines.
