All in the details...

I was working on our birth preferences last night in preparation for childbirth class tonight. I probably spent a half hour going through Pantone colors to find just the right ones for the page accents. Because the labor and delivery nurses might judge me for using Pantone 578 C instead of Pantone 580 C.

Thinking about that this morning reminded me of the only two pregnancy nightmares I've had so far. Both had to do with design:

#1: I was in a serious panic (dreaming) because the ladies hosting our baby shower had decided to use the Marcel Breuer Cesca chair for seating at the shower and it was all wrong... I kept getting flashes of cane weaving that were strangely horrifying. I woke up scared and laughing. An odd combination.

#2: Our nursery was in the process of being set up but I couldn't find just the right all-glass nursery furniture. I went from store to store searching frantically. Because furniture made out of fragile materials is PERFECT for a nursery.

I wonder if Mini will be as much of a nerd as his/her mum. Can't wait to find out...

  1. Next comes the dream that you can't give birth until you finish all of your brick drawings. Except you can't find your lead holder or Mayline.


On that thought...
