Today’s activity is one of those for mama, not baby. The goal: to refresh your wardrobe.
I knew I needed this challenge! My go-to dresses all summer have been the same ones I wore last summer (i.e. maternity clothes) because they are loose and are perfect for nursing. But it was also nice to think about shopping for clothes that were just for my body, not for a body that’s pregnant or lactating.
I headed off to the mall, but somehow this didn’t feel right, too indulgent. At least Veronika was napping so the mall was a nice cool place for it!
I kept getting distracted by baby stores; I was out of the habit of indulging myself since I only buy kids’ clothes these days!
I backtracked to a local store, because it always feels good to shop local. Veronika was awake now, and loved playing in the dressing room.
And mama got a little wardrobe refresh after all. In sum, take the time to do these things for yourself. Baby gets a fun outing, and you get to practice some self-care.
