Assignment 3- Moment
Looking at the daunting task ahead, expecting parents Bill and Melissa Gutwiller try to remember where the baby swings and car seat are at in the garage rafters. Bill has to get the baby's stuff down so Melissa can clean it. "This is nesting...cleaning or as husbands say crazy," Melissa said. Melissa is expecting newborn, daughter Alexis on Tuesday, March 16, 2010 and to be completely ready and be able to relax the next couple weeks the Gutzwiller's thought it would be best to get as much done as possible on Tuesday, February 23, 2010.
On Tuesday, February 23, 2010 expecting parents, Melissa and Bill Gutzwiller finish up the last few preparations before the arrival of their fourth daughter, Alexis. Since Melissa’s due date is Tuesday, March 16, 2010 the Gutzwiller’s thought it
would be best to finish up the remaining loose ends before the two weeks prior to her due date.
Some of the loose ends the Gutzwiller’s had to finish include cleaning stored baby items like swings, a car seat, and toys, completing hospital registration papers, backing the hospital bag, and talking about the possibility of saving Alexis’s cord
While Melissa packs her bag, she takes a moment to write a list of items she will need during her stay at the hospital. As she writes out her list, she remembers one last item, “I need my makeup,” Melissa said. She added she still wants to look
good while she has visitors at the hospital.
As the afternoon went on, Melissa asks Bill to take down the stored baby items from the garage so she can clean them. “This is nesting…cleaning or as husbands say crazy,” Melissa said.
Towards the end of the afternoon, the Gutzwiller’s accomplished several things during the day, making themselves and their home completely ready for the arrival of Alexis. Melissa added all they need to be finished is Alexis.
