Things I've learned:
1. I'm picky.
2. Walls look better with paint.
3. I'm not sure whether to glide or rock.
Just this week, we had our bedroom and nursery painted. Both rooms look so much more vibrant with color on the walls. When the nugget arrives, I'd really like for the baby to be impressed with my decorating skills. I'm getting close. Plus I'm coming into my sixth anniversary in the condo (wow, that's a long time in 900 sq. ft.) so it was about time to do some coloring.
Now that the walls in the nursery are painted, the crib and dresser complete, and some other small pieces in there, I'm trying to decide whether to glide or rock. I've heard great reviews of gliders. The problem is #1 above. While gliders might be comfortable, I've only found one that I like. See exhibit A below:
This rocking chair option is sleek and one tenth of the cost of the glider above. However, the first question that immediately comes to mind is "how comfortable will that be at 3 am when I'm certain I'll die of exhaustion?"
A third option would be to repurpose the rocking chair my mom used for me. I love the sentimental value and the fact that it would be free minus some manual labor and materials. If we want to actually to pay for braces for our child, I probably need to skip the adorable but incredibly expensive glider and rock instead.
