I just want to share how yet again touched I am by my friend's kindness and generosity: we gave our crib away to a friend expecting a baby couple weeks before I found out about my pregnancy. And of course, I didn't expect it to be back even though my friend mentioned she could give it back in June, but I know it wouldn't be convenient since their baby is only 6 months old and uses the crib. So I told her she didn't have to do that and she is welcome to use as we can get by with co-sleeping. In reality we didn't use the crib that much - it was nice having one for naps and like to put the baby in when I needed to use the loo and she was already wiggly).
So yesterday a friend calls me and asks if we would like to take their crib and a bunch of other baby stuff! And her only condition - all these things should be passed on for free and whoever passes them on after us, should be asked to keep passing them on for free. It was so touching!
So, I am not officially ready for the baby - just have to assemble the crib and wash the clothes.
