These days, it seems like to be a mom, you have to be an interior designer, gourmet cook, writer, and overall creative genius. While I love Pinterest and blogs as much as the next girl. Sometimes as I’m perusing the Web, I just think: Woa, that looks pretty, but I could never do that, and I don’t really want to try. Trying to would mean a way-too-early dose of Mommy Guilt that I’m just not ready for.
That said, I’ve been looking at doable projects for Baby that I could actually complete. There are projects and there are PpppprrrrrOOOOoojjjjeeeeeCCCCCTTTTsssssssss. I’m more into the former. I like to start a project, work on a project, and finish a project in a timely manner. If it takes too long (unless its knitting), I get frustrated or annoyed and lose interest. (I feel similarly about dinner, too. Sorry, Gregg.) Here are some doable baby DIY projects (not PpppprrrrrOOOOoojjjjeeeeeCCCCCTTTTssssssss) that I like and may attempt.
This is from the Nester. The subtitle of her blog is: It doesn’t have to be Perfect to be Beautiful. This is the life statement that I didn’t know I had. Doesn’t look like baby, but still very feminine, which I like.
And then there’s knitting. There’s about a bogozillion things that I would like to knit for this baby. Here’s just one.
My baby HAS to make this face if I make her this poncho.
Its hard to tell if I thought of any of these ideas myself or if they were all stolen from Pinterest. Maybe I can say “inspired by”, as opposed to “stolen from.”
By the way, we found out that we’re having a girl!! In case you couldn’t tell by my ultra-feminine design board here.
