A busy couple of weeks here in Redlands (Telfer especially)…but! apparently not busy enough to think about a few baby things. I like a good project and "having a baby" definitely constitutes a project. So many details to obsess over and unknowns to contemplate! This baby already has a number of spreadsheets and timelines and what-if contingency plans dedicated to its well-being. Slightly ridiculous, but very fun.
Anyway, for the most part (well, except I have found some great deals on clothing) I have held off from buying baby things, but over the weekend I did purchase two things. I framed a New Yorker illustration by Ian Falconer of Olivia’s mother reading Goodnight Moon. Hopefully you all know Olivia (if you don’t, you should).
And really, what baby wouldn’t delight in a deer figurine that is also a bank? All for $4.99 at Urban Outfitters.
This isn’t exactly related but I am currently obsessing over Mrs. Meyer’s all-natural, earth-friendly cleaning products. I have a set in the Rhubarb scent, and I am telling you, nothing has ever made me want to clean my counters more. I sent my mom a little package and she is in total agreement. I bought the set at Whole Foods but later found out that Cost Plus usually carries the products too.
