The Thrifty Mama's Guide to More Life for Less!
Sometimes it's hard to be a Thrifty Mama!
I had my morphology scan today and have found out I am having a healthy baby girl (we have two boys aged 3 and 5) and I am over the moon and fighting back an urge to run out and buy lots of pink stuff and chocolate ( I don't think the chocolate is baby girl related- more of a default for me). I realise that this is me experiencing a strong emotional response and wanting to have an action I can take! I will of course collect lovely "girl things" (hmm doesn't sound right) over the course of the next 20 weeks (and beyond!) mostly second hand. I have a lot of neutral tiny baby clothes as we didn't know if son#2 was going to be a son or not but I can feel an attack of pink frills lurking in every op shop and all those market stalls I have had to walk on by because the cheap clothes were all for girls.
Anyway, it's hard to think of such trifles when one is so delighted!
