What could be more important than the appearance of a child in the life of every mommy? Most likely, only the preparation for this most important event in life. Isn’t that so, dear moms?
I have acquaintances who agree on everything in advance. I would not be able to live according to a clear plan, schedule. And maybe it is necessary to live with clear guidance of your actions, sacredly executing your plan, written down for several weeks and years ahead?
These familiar ladies were able to plan their studies, work and family. And everything in the family is also clearly according to plan: a child after 3-5 years, and before that: repairs in the house, organizing a room for the future (after 5 years) of a child, buying the things he needs.
On the one hand, it is not bad when the repair is in the apartment and there is everything you need. But on the other hand, it looks wild: there is a cot, a stroller, rattle toys, and there was no child and no
I am not saying that this is wrong. Just sharing with you, reader Alimero. I’m somehow not so perfect. And my girl has no separate room yet. But mother, sister and many friends say that a baby doesn’t need many things, and it is much better for him to sleep with parents, or at least in one room, than separately.
The last terms of my pregnancy
You know, in the early stages of pregnancy, I did not particularly think about the dowry. The sister promised to give all the children’s wardrobe from their children. And there is enough diversity. She has a girl and a boy. And the diaper, and sliders incredible amount! So I just enjoyed my position and rested more, which was important for me.
Yes, you can say, I just spilled. But in the last stages of pregnancy I began to panic. You know how in the fable of Krylov the Dragonfly and the Ant. I have absolutely nothing ready! Things need to be taken from her sister, a cot and a stroller should be bought, and so much more is needed at the hospital!
And childbirth is close!
Sudden mood swings were a sign of impending labor. I was happy for no reason, and then I could just sit on the sofa and scream as offended 5-year-old girl! This hormones are raging, my girl! – answered mom. Maybe you do not have enough vitamins or nothing to do? – the husband spoke.
Yes, indeed, I had to take myself something. This was indicated by the nesting instinct, which greatly aggravated in my 9th month. Therefore, I forced my husband to change the wallpaper and the chandelier in the room, make a permutation and do spring cleaning. Poor, how he only endured me! I only commanded, but he quietly, without wrangling, carried out my commands.
Then we went shopping at the hospital. Well, you remember, there is a whole list! All this is natural, we bought, as without it? But there was a bed and a stroller. I do not see the point in believing superstition and not buying anything for a child before birth.
And what should he wear in the hospital? And what if the father of the child is not able to take time off from work and buy (during the time when the wife is in the hospital) everything you need? And the fact that the husband or relatives will buy is not always enthralled.
Husband made a gift, it remains to give birth to see!
It’s good that we bought together what we needed beforehand. No running around and no hassle. I was able to return home with full confidence that I have everything at home and for the baby everything I needed was bought.
Do you think it is better to buy a dowry in advance? Or is it worth waiting for the baby to be born?
