Sappy Pinterest Nursery Quotes That Actually Make No Sense

By  | 

Deciding how to decorate the nursery is a right of passage for the newly pregnant. When I got pregnant I spent weeks poring over Pinterest looking for theme ideas and color schemes to make the babies’ room just right. It seems like no nursery is ready to bring home baby to without some sort of wall art containing an inspirational quote that sums up your love for you new bundle of joy. At the time I fell for it hook, line and sinker, but now that I read these quotes through the jaded eyes of a bitter toddler mom, the sappy quotes that once made me say “Awww” now leave me thinking, “Huh?”

1. I love you to the moon and back

If the love you have for your child is measured in distance, what does it say when you pick the closest rock in the sky?

2. First we had each other, then we had you, now we have everything

Looming childcare expenses, constant anxiety over SIDS, an extra 15 pounds that refuses to budge- yup. We are living the dream.

3. When I met you I knew an adventure was going to happen

Parents of newborns have so many adventures! As long as your definition of adventure is moving from the bed to the glider to the couch and back again. Or getting some spring rolls instead of your usual egg roll with the Chinese food order because you’re too tired to cook again.

4. I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be

Ah yes, the Mrs. Bates special. It’s sweet, until they grow up and get a significant other. Then it’s just many layers of creepy.
