I couldn't find any suspenseful music, but I did find the original movie trailer for Scream.
The thought of making room for a crib in my teeny tiny apartment makes my brain hurt. Square peg. Round hole. Impossible. And, the crib is just one thing. There are many other things that will need to find homes in my apartment too - bottles, clothes, diapers and
|The round hole symbolizes my apartment and |
the square hole symbolizes the baby stuff. Deep.
So, what does an apartment dweller do when she has a baby? Where does all the baby stuff go? WHERE?
Without the pressure of an impending due date, it's a good time to consider this dilemma. My standard method of problem solving is to separate the things I can control from the things I can't control, then focus on the things I can control. In this problem, I can't control the size of my apartment. Unless, of course, I move. Assuming that's not a feasible option (because it's not), let's continue. The baby stuff is something I can control both in terms of how much and how big. Thus, I'm going to focus on the baby stuff. Step one: complete.
Step two: what is the baby stuff? I've come full circle in a mere two paragraphs, one of which was only three short questions. Hmmm. My method for learning things about pregnancy and childbirth is consulting wikipedia and urbandictionary.com. Unlike my problem solving method, this method is bad. It failed just yesterday (read this and then this for the humorous details).
And so, I'm turning to YOU - What are the best baby stuff? I'm not talking great, I'm talking BEST. What are things that were absolutely essential to the first year of your little one's life? Give me your Top 5.
