I finally got around to sorting out Miss Piggy's room and the mountains of clothes that have been given to her.
I wanted to get the smallest size washed and sorted, ready for when she decides to make her appearance.
Actually let me rephrase that - her presence is very apparent in my appearance at the moment, so I should rather say: for when she decides to present herself to the world...
Anyway, I sat and sorted on saturday, did a bit of a stocktake...
...and found we have a problem.
We still have mountains of clothes - but mostly 3 - 6 months and upwards.
All we have for the first three months of Miss Piggy's life are: 4 shortsleeved vests, 4 bodyvests, 1 babygrow/all-in-one and five oh-so-cute but not-so-practical outfits. And lots of socks.
Prayers are needed. We're praying The Man gets a bonus this year...
And that it will be enough to cover a car service (the car is now into it's third year without a service), a new cricket bat (because The Man is convinced his current, rather expensive one is cracking), a pram (with some kind of toddler seat/spot to stand on), a cot, a baby-sling (because I was dumb enough to give the REALLY nice Kango one that came over from SA with me to a drug dealer) and a chair to sit on when I feed in the middle of the night.
And now, of course, baby clothes.
Ooh, and while I think about it - the drug dealer also scored The Frog's sleep wedge, another thing that needs replacing!
Ok, now that I've actually written all of that down, the panic status has been changed from mild to intense.
Pray, people, pray!!!
