I am terrible when it comes to making decisions. Not a good thing ever really. Especially problematic being an almost first time mum, when every day seems to bring a range of decisions that have to be made...
On the purchasing front it seems that this baby thing is a real 'business' (and I thought weddings were bad!) Too many choices, too many options for someone like me who can become paralysed with indecision...
Anyway, as you can see 'Souvie' is growing and time is running out, nothing much has been crossed off the big to do list we have. It seems like only yesterday we had ages and ages...
I have been struggling with some basic items like cot, car seat and pram. You see my head and heart are in constant battle over what to purchase.
My Heart says:
'Purchase the cot the Stokke Sleepi Mini' ' It is tooo cute!' (more like a bassinet but can convert to cot with additional purchase).
How cute is this?! It is such an adorable little place for bubbas to rest, they look so snuggly.
I am smitten with it, but the Head says no.
You see, in order for it to be a cot you have to purchase an additional add on. And well the add on, adds up - so to speak!
The Head says:
'Be sensible'. 'be practical'. 'purchase the Ikea Gulliver Cot'.
Don't get me wrong I think this is also a cute cot. I love how it looks a little bit vintage with it's flat rectangular shape and round poles etc. It is just not as sweet as the mini sleeper... It is practical though, it coverts to a toddler bed and a junior bed without the need for additional purchases.
Anyway needless to say my head won and Souvie has a bed now, if nothing else.
Regarding the pram and change table (and every thing else) I am still looking. Regarding the change table I had simply wanted to use a chest of drawers I am going to sand back and paint (yes that to do list is very very long!) however it is too high to use as a change table.
P.S (My heart thinks that my head is just plain cheap!)
