Assembling the Nursery

Bye, Bye Handyman! More British Moms Assembling Cribs

The movies often show an expectant mother resting in a rocker while her husband struggles to put the crib together. Reality doesn't always work that way! In the age of DIY television and shows like Extreme Home Makeover, a growing number of other families are pulling out their drills and getting to work. According to a study by BabyChild.org.uk, 41 percent of the surveyed mamas-to-be built their lil one's furniture on their own because, "their partner was not getting it done." In my case, I was lucky because the store that delivered our crib assembled it for free. How did your room get set up?

We bought our crib assembled, but my husband took it apart in between kids.

Our nursery is Ikea all the way...and I love putting their furniture together! I get totally in the zone ;) So, we started together, him reading the manual until I got fed up and send him to mow the lawn...
