jettie’s first room

jetties_room_girls_nursery_7When Sticky and I were looking at homes I couldn’t help but ponder which room in each house would make a good nursery.  If life were to bless us with a baby I wanted to know where his or her space would be.  At that time we were committed, but not yet engaged, so I kept my nursery ideas to myself (talk about scaring off a man). I would proclaim that the smallest bedroom would be “a good place for the treadmill”.  This room did indeed make a good home for the treadmill.  Which worked out nicely because running gives a person a lot of time to think.  Will it become a space for a boy, or a girl?  What color will we put on the walls?  Where will the crib go?

As the years went by, and uncertainty began to creep in, the only thing this room symbolized was what we didn’t have…at least not yet.  Hope was never lost on this tiny little space for baby.  The day it officially became what it was meant to be, well, that was pretty amazing.
