Time to wishlist again  

I was strangely humble about my wishlist last year but now it's time to take care of myself *nods*. Being pregnant with my first child makes me wish for a better world but since I probably won't get that I'll go for something else:

1. I intend to raise my baby bilingually (I'm German but English is the language I actually dream in... weird, I know) so I'd love to get English children books or songs or cds or poems like lullabies or kids rhymes or just simple prayers that are appropriate for youngsters. So if you have things like that to offer I'm all ears and eyes. If you have books to give away I'd be willing to give away my adress.

2. Socks! The more colorful the better. I just love socks!

3. Christmas cards/e-cards.

4. Inspiration for the decoration of the nursery. Do you have pics of your kid's nursery? I'm pretty clueless about how it's supposed to look like. I know I want Disney figures on the walls and my sister and a friend of mine are willing to do the painting. They did it before and it looks AWESOMEAWESOMEAWESOME but besides that I'm totally at a loss (fyi... I don't know the gender yet but I hope to find out on Thursday)

5. My paid lj account will expire early next year and since getting a baby is ridiculously costly I'm not sure I'm willing to pay for another year. So, uhm... yeah... that'd be... *clears throat*...

... Wishing for things is kinda embarrassing.

So, now go and have your own wishlist :-)

Edited for a #6:

6. Recs for audiofics (Supernatural, Criminal Minds, Buffy, Sentinel, Haven and and and...) but strictly GEN! Preferably case fics or any kind of fic that has an actual plot (I'm not picky as long as there's no sex) and is longer than ... say... 20 minutes or so.
Current Mood: chipperchipper

I only can help you out with the Christmascard thingy...just leave me a PM with your adress :)

Awww If I´d have a baby, I´d raise it bilingually too..and your wish is soo cute! I don´t think we have english written children´s books here but I´ll keep my eyes open!

Oh..ask sweetgirl7808 if she´s having a pic of Winnie Pooh that she painted on her daughter´s wall a few years back..Sadly it isn´t there anymore..(yes, kids do grow out of those kind of things..LOL)
I only drew a reverse painting on glass for a cousin of mine..it was Bambi with Klopfer - I´m so not good in painting! ;) Oh and I totally would have fairies and elves painted on the walls..God, I think I would need 10 nurseries to make everything come true..LOL

annj_g80annj_g80 on November 16th, 2010 08:37 am (UTC)
*lol* Yeah, unfortunately the nursery is tiny and four walls (well, minus the one with the door and the window because it's a pretty small room) don't offer enough place for every single Disney movie ever produced. I need to narrow it down, I guess. Plus, the ceiling already is booked with tiny twinkling stars *giggle*.

I'm afraid this room is going to be a desaster when I go on like that *lol*.

And I'd love to get a postcard from you. I'll send you the adress via PM. Thanks sooo much :-)

I'll happily send you books and things in English for your child. :) Just PM me your addy!

Wheee, that would be beyond awesome. You'd have my gratitude till the end of days. At least mine :-D

I'll send you my adress via pm. Thanks so much!

Please PM me your address hon and I will send you some English children's books.

Ryan's nursery had a jungle theme - we went for something neutral because we didn't know the gender until he was born. It's probably not everyone's taste but I think it looks fantastic when the nursery ceiling is painted to look like the sky (blue with lots of white clouds).

You could maybe use Disney transfers/stickers on the walls too - that way you will be able to remove them when the baby gets older and you want a change of design in the nursery.

Ryan quickly became fond of certain characters on children's tv shows and we had to redecorate his nusery to fit his new tastes. It's amazing how quickly babies grow into toddlers with their own ideas about what they want in their bedroom/nursery.
annj_g80annj_g80 on November 16th, 2010 07:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, thanks so much.

I was thinking about an underwater theme... I have a thing for Nemo *lol*. And I'm thinking about having the paintings on extra wallpaper so we don't don't have to paint everything over when we move out. Maybe, there's a way to design your own stickers? I need to research that, methinks. And I like the idea with the clouds on the ceiling *ponders*.

I'll send you my adress via pm. Just send me yours back so I can get you some Christmas decorations :-D.

(I just LOVE Christmas)

Erm...what size do you need for your socks?
annj_g80: Harry Potter blubberannj_g80 on November 18th, 2010 04:54 pm (UTC)
*lol* Awesome!

the quiet oneenergetic_red on November 19th, 2010 06:10 am (UTC)
What? ^^

That's a very important question. But I have to admit that 38/39 is a quite...difficult size. Most socks are 35-38 or 39-42. ;o)
annj_g80: Christmasannj_g80 on November 19th, 2010 07:30 am (UTC)
True. *giggles* Make it 38 then. :-D

All I have to say, that one of the wishes just has been CHECKED.
So one person less to worry about in terms of presents.

Re: Wishlist
Hehe, awesome. So, anything in return I can make you happy with? You know ... besides making the universe justify itself?

*hugs you*

I'd love to send you some baby stuff of the English variety. I'd send you some that we already have, but it's all been *lovingly* used :)

Email me your address sometime.

And I'll have to see if I have any pics of our nursery. Originally it was entirely with a Snoopy theme but as our baby turned into a toddler, we went with Cars because he's obsessed with that movie.
annj_g80annj_g80 on November 30th, 2010 06:44 pm (UTC)
Oh no, I think I totally forgot to reply... did I? I'm a bad lj friend. I'll be sending you a mail :-)

1) Geht mir genauso, ich denke sogar in Englisch XD
If you give me your address I just might have something for you.
annj_g80: Harry Potter blubberannj_g80 on November 30th, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC)
Wheeee thank you. I'll give you my adress via pm.

Hehe, English ist echt wie ein Ohrwurm den man nicht mehr los wird :-D
lovely goddess ladsalivia_baker on November 30th, 2010 07:03 pm (UTC)
Nachdem ich angefangen habe auch Japanische Sachen zu schauen und die Sprache auch zu lernen, denke ich manchmal auch in Japanisch XD
mein Deutsch rostet ein :P

got you address. Will be sending the item then next week or so :)
annj_g80annj_g80 on December 10th, 2010 03:28 pm (UTC)
Ist alles angekommen *freu*

Gaaanz unendlich lieben Dank. Werd mir die CD auch gleich mal anhören...

(Ja, ich weiß, ist noch nicht Weihnachten aber ich bin so neugierig, hehe)
lovely goddess lad: Boromirsalivia_baker on December 10th, 2010 04:16 pm (UTC)
Freut mich, dass sie dir gefällt. Ich selbst kenne sie nicht. War ja noch original verpackt. Habe allerdings The Knights of Round Table mit der Stimme von Sean Bean, die bei dir auch drauf sein sollte als ganze CD und ich liebe sie. Gut ich mag Sean Bean aber auch die Geschichte und wie er sie vorträgt finde ich gut.
