This week I got to interview Zahara, a member of our Clients Relations team. She is pregnant with her first baby (It's a BOY!) and we can't wait to meet him when he arrives in April. Zahara, or "Z" as we like to call her, let me in on her thoughts on becoming a mother, as well as her top five baby items she can't wait to use!
"I'm extremely excited for this journey of becoming a mother! It's a beautiful gift that will unfold many wonderful moments and responsibilities. I know my heart will melt at his first smile, first words, and throughout the entire process of nurturing him as his personality develops. I'll try not to be too naive about the level of responsibilities ahead. For starters, a full night's sleep will most likely now be a faint memory, loads of laundry will multiply, “mommy” will go from his first utter to a seemingly endless amount of demands, and the list goes on. Just as I expect all mothers would agree, all of it will be worth it. Through this journey, here are 5 things, among many, that I am overjoyed to use along the way."
2. Decorative Wall Growth Chart - His growth and age will be handwritten on an amazing tree design.
3. Books – Stories and tales from Mother Goose and Dr. Seuss will surely stir his imagination - or put him fast to sleep!
4. Rocking Chair - Another lovely way for us to bond. We'll look at and read books, listen to nursery rhymes, sleep, and hopefully sleep some more!
5. Toys - What discovery path will he take? Will he be more drawn to airplanes, boats, letters, scribbling or all of it?
These are GREAT picks Z, thanks for sharing!
