Yesterday, we went in for the usual ultrasound and, low and behold, after three boys we were told we should start planning for a little pink in our house! Honestly, I went into a bit of shock. I’d headed over to the appointment expecting to be told we would be adding another boy again, but no! As you can well imagine, this is going to cause a bit of a shift in our family dynamics (after I get used to the idea)! I haven’t felt the urge to go out and start shopping for pink things. Yet. I keep thinking, “It’s really a girl!” over and over.
Today, I’ve started making a to do list for things that will need a little adjusting in preparation for her arrival, including sorting through storage containers of baby clothes and a little painting over some rather dark blue on the wall of the nursery once I can throw the windows open wide. Grey will be the new color!
I realized that I really don’t do pink very well at all. I have very little of it in my wardrobe, preferring blues, neutrals, plum, orange for a little kick and the occasional touch of green. I realized, too, that I don’t really use pink much in my card making either, when given the choice! I challenged myself this afternoon to make a totally girly card using pink, but I’m not so sure I succeeded…
I’ll keep practicing.
