Why Jeremy Wants to Kill Me

I can see it out of the corner of my eye. Sitting there, in its original packaging. the crib bumper, sheet, window valance, sheet and dust ruffle. I can see the adorable polka dots and lovely stripes. The colors are bright and bold. And the alphabet letters are too fun! And then I see 'them'. I see those Dr. Seuss 'things'. Those yellow, creepy things. And they are embroidered on this hideous, waffle fabric. These yellow 'things' were cute in the picture online. They were cute, and not embroidered, and not on waffle fabric. At least, not that I could see.

And who INSISTED this was 'THE SET', 'THE ONE', 'PERFECT FOR A BOY OR GIRL'?
Who?
ME! 
DUMB-ASS ME!

I made a mistake, if you will. Perhaps got over-eager. You know, excited for this next baby. I'm a planner and wanted to get a move on things. But now, nothing is moving much. The nursery is pretty-much cleaned out, but I can't make the move. I can't unpack the bedding set. I've got it listed on Craigslist and Ebay...just hoping someone will want it. Because I don't.

I want something else. I want elephants! No, now I want giraffes! Yes, giraffes. But, the elephants are still cute. Oh wait, nope, back to the alphabet, but not the Seuss alphabet, the MiGi alphabet. Yes, this IS the set. This IS THE SET.

Now, if only the husband will agree.

I like both - I did that with Tatum's bedding - The hubby didn't want to find out if it was a boy or girl. At first I said okay - so I ordered ABC set in yellow, green, tan ... BORING!!! Then I HAD to know - I wanted Pink so bad! It was a girl ... so I took the bedding to once upon a child and I lied to the hubby told him they gave me 75% ... they only gave me 50% but I didn't care I was a raging mess at the time it was my FIRST baby and it had to be right!!!!!
Then I chnged the 2nd babies order 3 times. Oh the joys of being a mommy!

Well good luck selling it! I think I prefer the second one too :)

Yes, dude! The migi alphabet was a close runner up to the migi splash we went with. But Seuss isn't awful or anything. :)

Love the Migi bedding ... and if you've got an alphabet nursery in mind, you've gotta check out what I did for my first born ... each letter was painted by a family member or friend ... it is so special!
