I can only say that the amount of complaints I received regarding the baby's nursery have been numerous. Not many people have been able to come and see it, but everyone seems to know the story behind it getting done. I didn't spare one soul when it came to complaining about the arduous task of putting this thing together.
When I got pregnant the first time I just knew I was meant to be a boy Mom. Well as usual, my instincts failed me. I soon became and fell in love with being a girl Mom. I love all things girl! When I got pregnant again I saw no vision past pink. So, I was a bit surprised when we found out we were having a boy. I was completely prepped on my new bunny nursery. I basically just need to click "purchase" on all my websites. The deal was done.
So, redrawing a boy nursery flustered me. I only had 6 months to design, create, purchase, paint, and place PEOPLE!
It started out with a Moon and Stars theme. Oh wait Pottery Barn Kids, where in the heck did all of the Moon and Stars stuff go that I saw a mere 2 months ago? Are you playing with me?...and so they weren't.
Then I said forget you Moon and Stars and I decided to go all modern. Hey wait...going all modern is expensive when nothing you own is modern and you have to buy new things.
So, to keep a long story short I kept a lot of things I already had from the beginning and I plowed forward.
When it was complete, I then decided to post it for the entire world to see. The real world is harsh folks. Within in seconds of posting the nursery my sweet little nursery became a 2.5 out of 5 stars nursery. Did I offend your mothers of something people? Don't kick me while I'm down.
The hurt and pain followed.
To make myself feel better I aimed to vote for myself and give myself a very unrealistic 5 stars.
Well...it turns out my fingers are more trustworthy than my foolish little brain and I accidently hit 3 stars! At least I tried.
I get it! I am no five stars. I can't even give MYSELF five stars.
Luckily in the meantime some gentle person voted me into a 3.5 star nursery. Bless your precious heart you sweet stranger.
