I ran to the store the other day to return some Christmas gifts. They sat in our closet for a couple months, and with the homestudy just around the corner, I've started cleaning out closets.
After I returned the items I started browsing the baby section and I just felt this urge that I needed diapers in the house. So, I bought some.
I started thinking about all of the necessities of a newborn more this weekend. I started searching through all of the bins in our storage area and I could not find our newborn and 0-3 month clothes. I mentioned it to my mom and it just so happens that the box of clothing I was searching for was in her garage. My sister borrowed them when she had her baby and left them at my mom's
I went out to her house this weekend and we pulled out all of the little clothes. I remembered my daughter in each of them. My mom said she was amazed at my memory of which onesie had pants and which had a skirt. There are many little pink outfits, but there are enough yellow and green outfits to put me at ease.
I guess I just needed enough baby stuff in the house to know that a newborn won't be naked and cold if we get a call that there is a baby born. My mom assured me that her love of shopping will continue with the next grandchild. I can sleep soundly tonight.
