We were up late last night putting the finishing touches on the nursery. I sucked the dust out of this room's every crevice, then went to town with a bleach rag and a bucket of Spic & Span. I've cleaned before, but this was like instinctual cleaning, primal cleaning. Karine finished sewing the bumpers around midnight. She sewed the bumbers, curtains, changing table skirt, crib sheet, and crib skirt in a forty-eight hour frenzy of hormone-induced craft euphoria.
Then we turned out the lights and sat on the couch and waited. Nothing happened, so we went to bed.
