Why would a piece of furniture make it all seems so real? Yesterday we bought a crib and a changing table/dresser. After 2 trips across town we got them both home—though the crib is still unassembled in my car. The dresser is in the baby's room (no, we still don't like the n-word). We got it in place and both got the same feeling. . . "oh my we're going to have a baby." No kicking or baby clothes or ultrasound or birthing class gave us this same feeling of, "holy crap there will be a baby here soon!"
Not sure how the piece of furniture—which looks just like any old dresser—could suddenly make us realize the gravity of the situation. I wonder what would happen if we bought a new couch?
