What she doesn't know about yet, is what it's like to be a mom of more than one. It's never been my intent to slight the others, I just don't have the same time I had before. And that's the real matter, it's not that parents love the first more than the others, it's just that they have more time before they have more than one. And as much as I hate to say this, she's setting her first up for the same resentment as I did mine... except maybe worse. You see, yes, my youngest child won't get his/her own room or a new nursery theme, but at least my third baby won't be hurt by the fact that I didn't design him his own fabric for his custom made bedding like her third will. That's right. You read it right, she designed her own fabric for this baby. Wow, it's awesome! It's gorgeous and could make any child envious.
Here's a sample.
Here's what the finished product should look like.
Can you imagine what the rest of the nursery will be like if this is the effort that she's putting into the crib linens? It's going to be incredible. Now, if she can just keep it up for the rest of her babies- Good luck with that, Elisabeth. (Oh, and even if you aren't able, I promise, they'll survive... Jesse did!)
