    Say it ain’t so!

    September 19th, 2010

    So now that G is 2, you think it’s time I put his 12m clothes away? I’ve come to the sad realization that now that his long sleeved shirts are starting to resemble his short-sleeved shirts in arm coverage, it’s probably time to part with them. Except that they are so stinkin’ cute, and some of my favorites are in this size.

    Yes, I know S2 will be sporting the same soon enough, but it’s just sad to put them away.

    It’s shocking that at 2 G still fits in his 12m clothes, huh? I guess it’s one of few benefits of having a kid on the low end of the charts. You stretch out clothing wear for a looooong time.

    But between the outgrown shirts, and the impending move to the bedroom next door, I started prepping his 2T sized clothing. I washed three loads of 2T sized clothes today. Out of the first load came a dozen short sleeved shirts, and about as many long sleeved shirts. Two more loads of folding to go. I think it’s safe to say I won’t need to do any shopping for G for the next year. And, as an added bonus, with this quantity of clothes, I think I’ll only need to do his laundry once a month 🙂

    Why, yes, these are Maternity clothes!

    Yep, it’s 7 months post-partum and I’m still sporting maternity clothes at least 2-3 days out of the week. Mostly the shirts, but I have one pair of maternity jeans that you’ll pry away only from my cold, dead fingers.

    They’re comfortable as heck, is why! The fabric is soft, stretchy and the clothes just fit right. I swear maternity clothes are designed for real people, and real bodies while regular clothes are designed on top of a mannequin for a size 2 model and only enlarged for size. If only my body was an perfect scale of a size 2 life would be good, but it’s not, so…

    The only disadvantage to still wearing maternity clothes is that they’re not providing me with any real incentive to get back into shape. They hide my pudge, which is good, but it can’t go on for perpetuity. I lent most of my maternity wear to an expecting colleague, but I saved my favorite jeans and a few of my shirts for myself. It was my attempt to wean myself off of the Motherhood line.

    None the less I’ll be sporting my comfy shirts for as long as I feel like.
    And yes, that is a maternity top I’m wearing today 🙂
