Way before I got pregnant, I had this plan. I would do the pregnancy test and if the result was positive I would give Dan a Scaredy Squirrel book. I wanted to do that because whenever we visit a book store or a library, we look at a Scaredy Squirrel book and say "when we will have a kid, we are so getting the entire collection".
Basically, Scaredy Squirrel suffers from some form of paranoid schizophrenia but at the end of each book he realizes that things are not that bad after all! Ok, I must admit that written like that you must wonder what kind of person would enjoy those books! Trust me, they are hilarious and won many awards.
Not that I suffer from paranoid schizophrenia but sometimes I get freaked out by things that are in reality not scary at all. Lately, I have this irrational "fear" of cribs (we still need to buy the crib).
I can spend hours looking at cribs online and having visions of spontaneous combustion, implosion and other dramatic things that could *never* happen to a crib!!! But on the other hand, I'm also quite cheap. So I can spend hours looking a cribs online and calculate how much future parents are getting screwed by baby cribs companies!
However, last night (3am), during a baby kickboxing tournament in my belly, I went again online to look at cribs and got an epiphany: the classic Jenny Lind crib (in white)! So please, if somebody is against this purchase let me know now or remain silent forever!!!
