One of my husband's co-workers has offered us an almost-new crib.
PEOPLE SEE US AS PEOPLE WHO WOULD NEED A CRIB!!!!!!!!!
A feeling of real-ness abounds...a feeling I've been waiting for. We were offered a second-hand crib!
And of course we'll accept. Not only does it make me feel like I'm taking a small step towards my goal of environmentally responsible parenting, not only does it solve the problem of whether to buy one crib or two, but it means I will have in my house a physical representation of the moment this all started to feel real.
A second-hand crib never sounded so good.
