Crap, I completely forgot to mention that I successfully assembled the crib a couple of weeks ago. Sorry for the PG-Rated opening sentence, but I promised I would post updates on the baby preparations, no matter how mundane they may be. And believe you me, they be pretty mundane, they be. (My apologies to any English teachers out there; you know who you are or aren’t.)
After being triple-dog-dared by a gang of roving teens, Patty & I purchased the DaVinci Kalani crib from Cribs.com (which is not affiliated with MTVCribs.com, where you can probably find information about Mariah Carey’s mudroom.) To my surprise, I was able to assemble the crib with no swearing, Union labor or hi-jinx (both wacky & non-wacky.) That’s probably a testament to the quality of the crib, rather than any proficiency on my part. We chose the espresso finish because I didn’t want to be called a liar when I wrote, “we chose the espresso finish.” Plus, I’m fairly certain it matches a pair of boots I once owned. It looks great and it’s solid. Like, real solid, can you dig? It’s the crib that won’t cop out, when there’s babies all about. Hey, I’m talkin’ ’bout the crib.
As usual, Patty took several photos for health insurance purposes.
