Mama Crack

I understand that admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. I'm not sure I want to recover from this particular addiction, but since my credit card has started hanging out at the local mall whispering "Hey buddy, got any of the good stuff?" to total strangers, I guess I need to try. Here goes....

Hi. My name is Dee and I'm a baby girl clothes addict. I always have been and I suspect I always will be. Years ago, I bought baby clothes when there was no baby in sight. Nobody in my family had a little girl right then, and I didn't know anyone who was about to have a little girl. The dress in question was just too cute for some little girl I would someday know, not to own it. I saved it til one of G. nieces had a daughter about 2 years later. I told you it was bad...don't say I didnt' warn you.

Whenever this adoption process has me ready to beat my head against a wall, I feel the need to shop. And not just any old shopping will do. It must be girl clothes. Luckily, the local Children's Place outlet and E-bay have been happy to enable me.

I may need an intervention.

Leopard print, polka-dots, and bandana print - oh my! Those three are my faves. Very nice. I have to watch myself because it is WAY too early for me to be shopping. Plus, we aren't specifying a gender preference... But I am developing a slight habit for seeking out gender-neutral toys and other stuff wherever I go. I know this is going to snowball over the next year! I was at Target last night picking up some iron supplements 'cause the doctor tells me I'm anemic (who knew?!) and I searched high and low for some goddamned stacking cups to no avail. So I came home empty handed and pouted.

It is an addiction. But they are beautiful clothes. What's really bad is to have a grandmother as addicted as the new mom to be is. But it is so much fun.
