Check out my maternity dress!
(Pure coincidence that I put this on today after my post last week.)
I found it when my mom and I were cleaning out her storage unit a few months ago. She wore it when she was pregnant with me. This morning when I threw it on for breakfast she said, “Awww, you used to be right there in my tummy.” Now my tummy is right there!
I love wearing her things from when she was my age. It just feels good, ya know? So mommies out there, keep your favorite dresses, shoes, scarves, accessories, your daughters will love them. (I know I don’t have to tell you that.)
UPDATE: I was just out at CVS and a woman stopped me to say, “Wow, that’s beautiful, you don’t see them made like that any more.” She’s right. The flowers are hand-stitched and the soft denim is all cotton, not a blend. Although it’s over 20 years old, the dress looks new. She followed up with, “You don’t throw things like that away, you’re a lucky girl.” Indeed I am to have such a stylish and thoughtful mama.
When people ask me why I’m not sure if I want to have kids, I always respond with, “I couldn’t be as good of a mother as my mom.”
