I guess you could say it all started on Pumpkin’s second day of dance class.
The first day, I was wearing a long, shapeless sweater—we all have that one. The second day, I wore a new form-fitting sweater and my skinnies tucked into my boots.
As I joined my daughter in her parent-toddler Dance and Movement class, jumping, crawling, waving my arms–I took a peek at my reflection in the wall-to-wall mirror, and felt a hint of pride. Two kids later and I still got it, my brain crowed.
But pride goeth before the fall, as they say.
Now that I’ve had two kids in the last three years, I have accumulated some of the pregnancy must-haves that any expecting mom (first-time and otherwise) should have on hand. Some were useful, others were not, but I’ll share the standouts.
