What To Do, What To Do...

Pour some mustard in your shoe!
Does anyone else remember that Shel Silverstein poem?
It's actually called Nothing To Do, but seeing as I actually have LOTS to do, I modified the first verse lol.
Shel Silverstein was one of my favorite poets when I was in elementary school...ok, he was my ONLY poet!
I loved his poems and they always made me laugh.

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the books and poems that I read as a kid.
Now that Bryan and I are trying to add a baby to our family, we've been talking about things that we need in the baby's room.
The first thing both of us put on our list is a bookshelf.
I mean, yes, a crib is important, BUT.  Lol.
While we were talking about where to put said shelf in the room, I started thinking about all the books I want to put on it.
Shel Silverstein is a must, the Berenstein Bears, lots of the Golden books, the Disney books, etc.
I even bough an old Berenstein Bears book at Book Haven the other day--Bears on Wheels!

I know, I know.  We're not even pregnant yet!
Not to mention that, eventually, the kiddo will start expressing his/her own taste in books and any that I buy will be relegated to boxes or maybe (MAYBE) Half-Priced Books.
I've just had so much fun thinking about books from my childhood that I want to share with my kiddo!

Oh, and did I mention I think I've narrowed nursery furniture down to two sets?
This one and this one!
Bryan is having a lot of fun laughing at me lol.
Oh well!  I'm having fun!
And at least once we find out we're pregnant, there will be a little bit less to think about and plan!
Hope y'all are having a wonderful Tuesday!


  1. The book I remember most from my childhood is Alexander's terrible horrible no good very bad day. LOL. Probably speaks really sad volumes about my childhood. LOL.
    I like the first set for the nursery. If we ever had a baby I would want a circle crib. Probably the most impractical crib in the world but its so stinkin cute.
    Besides wanting the healthiest baby in the World....do you want a boy or a girl?

  2. Lol that was a good book! I also liked the Hungry Caterpillar. The first set is also my favorite BUT I really like the combination chest of drawers on the second...decisions decisions lol! Like you said, healthy happy baby is the priority--but we both would like to have a little boy. Of course, there's also a lot we'd enjoy about having a little girl too. I'm just excited about the whole thing!!! :-D Thanks for the comment!
