Nesting

You know you read a lot of stuff in books or on websites, a lot of it is really good, some isn't and some you just don't know what to think about it. One of the things I am referring to is reading about pregnant woman going through the "Nesting Phase."

I am here to tell you that this is very very real. Over the past couple weeks I have seen a woman on a mission. Clean the carpets, clean the house, get the nursery ready, touch up the paint in the house, add shelves to all closets for storage, clean the garage (are the babies going to hang out in the garage?), clean the bathroom drawers, clean out the kitchen cabinets, add cabinets to the laundry room...shall I continue. I am convinced God put this phase in to get you prepared for the cost of children.

Tonight it was hilarious, Allyson was talking and in mid sentence she just breaks into "I have to clean out the freezer" and then just continued talking. I could not help but laugh.

All I can say is the carpets are cleaned, closets are done (thanks to my Dad for helping me out), I will be cleaning the garage this weekend, and cabinets are going into the laundry room next month...help me...13 weeks and counting.
