Why does it happen like that?

Why is it that after you had your baby, Target comes out with all of these cute maternity clothes? I was in Target last week and saw tons of maternity clothes that I liked but there was only one problem, I had no need for them. Of course I didn't buy them but, I wondered why they couldn't have all of those cute dresses when I was pregnant with Dolly. Thats a pic of me pregnant with Dolly. My belly was so round. Very Very Basketballesque

Why is it that when I went shoe shopping for a pair of shoes to wear to a wedding this weekend, I came home empty handed? I went to Payless, Jc Penny's, Sears, Rack Room Shoes, and Naturalizer (not in that order). What I did find were shoes that had heels that were toooooo high or I couldn't fit my foot in them because they were too narrow. Interestingly enough, I know that God cares about every detail of our lives, (Psalm 139) . And I am utterly convinced that he wanted his daughter to be happy with her shoes. Would you believe that while I was in Payless I heard that still small voice reminding me of my shoes from my wedding that were sitting in the top of my closet. I thought to myself " No... I couldn't wear those, they are too off white". My dress is a pink gingham taffeta like material that is straight, knee length and has spaghetti straps that tie behind my neck. A dress I hadn't worn since Cookie was 1 (almost 7 years ago... the only reason why I kept it 3 more babies later was because I was hoping to squeeze into again someday... this Saturday will be that day) The shoes haven't been worn in 10 years and 9 months. And I thought that the next person who would wear them would be Cookie when she gets married in about 10 plus years from now. So about an hour after I got home, I took the shoes down and tried to try them on- of course I couldn't get my foot in them. My mother assured me that it was because I was on my feet all day and it was the afternoon . I tried to get them on a little later and they fit! My dear mother was gracious enough to come down (10 hour bus ride) to watch my kids so that Just Big D and I could go to the Wedding-overnight in the Empire State.

So needless to say, I'm excited but, I miss my crew already. Rocco is going to have his 2nd T-Ball game and I won't be there to see it. But they will do fine if they stay busy. They have tons of books and movies from the library, there are parks nearby, they have their grandmother, Nanny, the phone number to Papa Johns Pizza and my cell phone number. What else do they need?
