Hey, this is Randy . . .
So what's up with pregnant women? Specifically, I have two questions. The first one is "Why do they nest?" Natalie has about 6 weeks left before her due date and she's been nesting like crazy-- trips to DI, pulling things in and out of our crawl space, dejunking every room in the house. Don't get me wrong, I really love it. When we finish having kids, we might have to simulate pregnancy just to get things ship-shape! Sometimes I get caught up in the nesting projects, which can be slightly inconvenient, but usually what she's doing really needs done, so I don't mind.
The second question, and I've noticed this with many pregnant women, is why is it a crime to call it "nesting" when it's afoot? Yesterday, I got a few emails about all the cleaning and dejunking while I was at work. Later, I asked, "How's the nesting going?" Big mistake. I was informed that she wasn't nesting. She was just getting rid of stuff so there'd be a place to PUT our newborn. And wouldn't it be nice to have everything clean when he comes?!
Not nesting, just cleaning and dejunking-- got it!
