I was up in the attic over the weekend doing the yearly of summer/winter wardrobe switch-out dance, when I popped open an old storage container and came face-to-face with stacks on stacks of old, baby boy clothes.
Ouch. My uterus.
Now, we’re expecting the third Bandas boy to join our family sometime next summer, but it’s a little strange to think that our newest addition won’t be tiny enough to snap into tiny Carter’s onesies and Mickey Mouse clad Huggies diapers. Of course, there are lots of ways to make a family and we’re thrilled beyond measure that our little one will be coming home soon, but I caught a certain whiff of nostalgia up in the attic that made me remember those sweet, special, exhausting moments of being a mom with a rolly polly baby in sweet newborn clothes.
As I sifted through the box, setting aside a stack of newborn clothes for girlfriends with babies on the way, my heart tightened in my chest, but not in a bad way – in that way it does when you hear an old song from high school on the radio or when you catch a whiff of hydrangeas before springtime officially arrives again. It was one of those Andy Bernard moments when you realize that some of the good old days, the days of breastfeeding babies in the middle of the night and giving baths in the sink, might actually be behind you for good.
And I’m good with that, but at the same time.
And even though having babies makes me turn into this:
It’s still the best damn thing I’ve ever done.
