I was doing laundry today and thinking that it really hasn't been bad (so far) with the addition of baby clothes. Maybe once Madison starts dumping grape juice & spaghetti sauce on herself I'll be doing a lot more, but so far, I haven't noticed an increase in laundry volume. From the way people talked before I had her, you would've thought I'd be doing a load of just baby clothes every other day!
This is my baby cupboard, btw --
It shares one shelf with the CDs & books that once occupied a much smaller bookshelf we got rid of. Check out that middle shelf of clothes. The insane thing is those are all 0-3 month sized! And the sad thing is probably 80% of them, she'll never get to wear. CUTE stuff, too. Bummer. If anyone out there gets pregnant in the next month or so & finds out you're having a girl, let me know -- I'll have some cute outfits to pass on to you!
Speaking of clothes -- that's another pre-pregnancy misconception. People were telling me I could go through a half dozen or more onesies each DAY. I thought that seemed extreme but I was assured this was sure to be the case. Well - not so. I think there have been a few times I might have gone through 3 in a day -- but it's more frequent she can wear a onesie for 3 DAYS before it needs changing.
