A Nesting Rabbit: Some Pregnancy Thoughts

Sometimes I wish I were a nesting rabbit instead of a nesting person. You see, rabbits don’t have to worry about purchasing (on a budget) a

1. crib 2. dresser 3. nightstand 4. changing table 5. baby swing 6. baby bouncer 7. rocking chair 8. carseat 9. baby carrier 10. stroller

and make sure that items 1-4 match, item 7 can't crunch little fingers, item 10 is equal parts durable and portable, items 9 and 10 are compatible, items 8-10 and 1 are the absolute safest on the market, and items 8 and 9 aren't exactly the same thing with different names. Oh, and lastly, go back over the list and decide which 5 items to eliminate because a small apartment tragically cannot fit everything a modern mother "absolutely must have"!

And those are just the big things! I got a " 'must haves' registry checklist" from Babies R' Us that listed no less than 152 items. Including a "baby gym," "3 gowns," a "wipes warmer," a "diaper stacker," and, I kid you not, 4 different types of strollers: full-size, convenience, jogging, and umbrella. What the heck is an umbrella stroller?!?

But you see, rabbits just need to dig a hole in the dirt and rip out their own fur to line it with. And litters of lots of little babies will be perfectly happy and healthy.

I would maybe deal with a little balding for that kind of simplicity.
