Nesting-I love it. For me, more than anything, it doesn’t just mean preparing for the actual BABY, but for life WITH a baby-and with five other children. It seems crazy honestly, but I am thinking ahead to August. The week I am due, Isaac moves into college, Abbey starts back to high school, and all the littles have school orientation and meet the teacher day. If I have learned anything being pregnant so many times, I know that preparation is the key.
So this year, as soon as those school supplies show up in Target, (you frequent Target shoppers will let me know right?) I’ll be the first in line with my lists. Meanwhile, I hit Children’s Place for uniform shorts and pants. EVERY darn year I miss their uniforms…they sell out so fast. This week I called and sure enough they were in-already! No wonder why I missed them-it’s only June for goodness sake. I dragged the boys for a quick visit one morning and stocked up. Last year, I waited and waited and ended up paying more than $40 for khakis at the Gap because no one else had the sizes in stock I needed. I got Children’s Place khakis (shorts and pants) for about $11 a pair. Alleluia! (This is not an advertisement for CP by the way, I am just loving my deal.)
