Impatience

So my impatience to get rid of all my baby stuff has now led me a lot of regret.  Now that my third bundle is on the way I'm realizing the things that I really wish I would have held onto for a little while longer.  Some of the things I don't miss at all, like the bouncy, the swing, the high chair, the changing table, and more.  But the things I'm really missing are my breast pump, my maternity clothes, and my nursing pillow.  I won my nursing pillow off of a blog contest, and I've been looking for another one, and they're $87!!  Ahhh!  It was the BEST pillow.  It was filled with organic buckwheat hulls so that it molded to the form you wanted it.  Ugh, I loved it.  I guess I'll be checking Craig's List religiously now.

So Michael came in here and read this and said, "I told you at the time that it was a mistake, right?"  I know, I know!  I was so sure that we were finished having kids, though!!!

I was also thinking about how I won that pillow.  I wrote this blog post, and then I submitted it into a contest at a breastfeeding blog, although I can't remember which blog.  So when I won, I felt so good.  I felt like I was being rewarded for all my hard work.  So what did I do, then?  I sold it at a kids resale shop for a TINY fraction of what it was worth.

Live and learn, right?  Back when I was selling stuff we were in the "buy whatever we need" phase.  But now that we're in the "pay off your house and live like no one else so that later you can live like no one else" phase, those big purchases hurt a little more.  Oh well.  You gotta live with your stupid decisions, right?  I'm still so glad we decided to have another one, though.  I'm pretty sure I'll never regret that decision.

  1. It's pretty much the one thing you never hear anyone say, right?...."I wish we hadn't had so many kids!"

    I'm so excited for you guys and keeping my fingers crossed for a girl!:)

    I'm so with you on the baby "stuff". My mom did get me an excersaucer for $5 that we've come to love (even though it takes up SO much room!). But, with our first, I quickly learned that I didn't need much, if any, of the "stuff" that goes along with a baby:)

    I'll keep my eyes open for that nursing pillow:)
