I'm joining up again today with multi mommas. This week we are talking about our nurseries.
I was so excited about my nursery. I had it all planned out. We have all kinds of woodland creatures and I thought it would be very suited for a boy and a girl. I had it all organized and planned. I love the new woodland creature looks. I had owls and squirrels and turtles and even a hedgehog. I thought they were so cute!
When I was pregnant sometimes I would just go and sit in the nursery and read pregnancy book and fight the urge to put my cat in a onesie. I loved it in there. I could just picture me gently rocking the babies nursing both of them gently singing lullabyes. Life didn't turn out quite as picturesque. I love the quite moments we had in there and I will always treasure them, but it definitely wasn't the romantic picture I had in mind. There was more grogginess than I thought there would be.
Sadly, the nursery has never looked this clean and organized again. I just don't understand how one can have a clean nursery. When I am able to clean it they are sleeping in it and if I attempt to clean it while they are up it looks worse than when I started most of the time.
So now picture these, but toss in some piles of clothes, some toys on the floor, cribs that have teeth marks all other them, and bins of clothes to be donated or stored somewhere besides our apartment. It definitely has a "lived in look".
But our nursery started out precious and organized. I have the pictures to prove it! Check out other twin nurseries and link up!
