Bed For Baby

While the night was still young, Hubby and I decided to hop over to MidValley for some window shopping for Baby's stuffs.

We stumbled upon a beautiful wooden baby cot in Planete Enfants Mamours. A wooden cot was definitely not in our checklist coz Princess had already given us Bumblebee's playpen/travel cot and claimed that it was sufficient enough for Baby to sleep in. We of course, appreciated it but was also slightly upset that we weren't able to buy a proper wooden one for Baby.

But this one... We just couldn't help falling in love with it! It's a 4-in-1 Luciole Deluxe baby cot that can be converted from a normal cot into a playpen, sofa bed and then a junior bed. Which means that it can be used till Baby is about 6 years old! The cot was on promotion, comes along with a 6-in-1 Lollipop bedding set (2 pillows+cases, 1 bolster+case, 2 bumper pads and 1 fitted bedsheet), Safe 'N Sound 100% natural latex mattress (wowee!) and a Foot Prints gift set (1 bodysuit, 1 bib, 1 pair of mittens and booties, 1 cap and 1 set of plastic fork and spoon - all blue!).

Mummy almost jumped off the roof when I told her about it, and that the cot would be delivered to her place by the end of May since I'll be doing my confinement there.

"You are not willing to even fork out that much to buy a new bed for your guest room but you are willing to pay so much for a wooden cot for Baby".

But that's the thing, isn't it? No matter what, we always want the best for our children. Now that I'm going to be a mother soon, I begin to truly understand how tough life is for parents; how it has been for my parents to bring us up, to provide all they can for us. I will do that for my children too. *Grin*

It's time to revise the checklist. There's still so many more things to shop for, but for now, I'm sooooooooooooo awfully glad that Baby is indeed finally going to be sleeping in a wooden cot after all!!! Hurray!!!!! And that will be the bed Baby will be sleeping in for the next 5-6 years. Unless of course, if we decide to have another baby during that period, then Baby will have to give it up for his younger sibling. *Wink*
