When I was pregnant with Luke I looked everywhere for a glider/rocker that wasn’t butt-ugly. Having no success, I wound up not buying a rocker at all. I mean seriously, why would I spend $300 to buy something that I will hate to look at everyday? Can you imagine something like this in my house? Just ewww.
This time though, I’m determined to get a glider. I breast-feed and when you’re getting up every two hours you really, really need a comfy chair. I told Whit we can everything else either second-hand or at Ikea, but damnit I want a nice chair.
Then I came across this thing of beauty. Lovely sleek lines. Can really be used in any room in the house. Just fabulous. Until Whit pointed out that it cost more than our new refrigerator (Samsung, French door bought at Sears Scratch and Dent, love the hell out of it). So, it looks like I’ll be sitting through another pregnancy without a glider.
It’s the same way with pretty much anything pertaining to nurseries. If it’s cool and modern looking you can guarantee it will cost a grip. Check out this fly nursery.
First, can you believe it comes from Wal-Mart? Yeah, I said Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, the crib alone costs $300. In the world of nursery stuff, that’s downright cheap, but still outside my budget.
