So we finally got around to converting H’s Ikea dresser back into a changing table. We cleaned out H’s closet and made room for baby things. We donated all of the junk we have been collecting for a garage sale (finally admitting that the garage sale wasn’t going to happen). With that done we were actually able to get to the crib out and set it up beside our bed.
With our physical space a little more freed up, we are starting to believe we have the mental space for a baby as well. Our goal is to be ready to welcome the baby next weekend!
We're the V-C family: Angela, Nathan, H (born 2006), and R (born 2009). We live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and rely on bikes, public transit and our feet for transportation. We've been writing here about carfree family life since 2008.
We write a lot of stuff on this site about biking with kids. Information here is our opinion only and doesn't reflect any kind of official endorsement or expert advice. Like much of life, biking (yourself or with your kids) involves some risk, so use your own good judgment before hitting the road (or the bike path).
