I cleaned out my closet today. A complete clean out.
Normally, cleaning out one's closet it not a big deal. However, today I put all of my "normal" (read: non-maternity) clothes back in my closet and moved out all of my maternity clothes.
I did keep one pair of maternity pants in my closet -- only because they are probably the only pants that fit me right now. I am scared to try on my jeans -- I just KNOW they won't fit 2 1/2 weeks after giving birth. But, my "regular" shirts fit....and so do some of my "regular" pants...so I figured it was time for a change. After all, I have been wearing maternity clothes since last June. That is a long, long time!
Sadly though, I have discovered that my maternity wardrobe has many more clothes in it, and is much cuter than my regular stuff. Really - ask any woman who has a maternity wardrobe -- chances are she'll tell you her maternity stuff is way cuter than her non-maternity stuff. I don't know why this is.
As happy as I am to be slowly working back into my regular clothes, it was a bit sad to put the maternity stuff away. Last time I did this, I knew I'd be pulling it out again someday. This time, the clothes are being put away permanently. It kind of tugs at the heart a bit. (And NO! I do not want to be pregnant again....it's just a "milestone" kind of sadness. Don't read anything else into it. Seriously. I am done having babies.).
Anyway....now I have a goal to work toward --- fitting into my jeans!
