Arthur's Baby, D.W. makes her mom pack a picture of herself so her mom won't forget what she looks like.
This is my dilemma. I never know what to pack for ME to wear home from the hospital. I packed like five outfits for the baby because (1) they are small, (2), I couldn't decide, and (3) my daughter was so unexpectedly small that she came home in a plain white onesie that she was swimming in.
When packing for what I should wear home after my first child, I took into account that I would be bigger than my normal, pre-pregnancy size and I packed my big jeans. It was devastating when they wouldn't fit. I was sure they would. I had to wear maternity clothes home from the hospital. It was such a sad realization that I wouldn't lose everything I expected to quite so quickly.
When packing what to wear home after my second child's birth I packed a pair of cotton, tie waste capri sort of running pants and a t-shirt. They fit, I came home sort of looking like a slob, but I wasn't wearing maternity clothes. That was my goal.
But it's January, so I can't whip out those same capri running pants without freezing.
Basically, my bag is about 1/3 full. I can't pack my toothbrush yet. I can't pack my deodorant yet. And at this point, I guess I'll be coming home in whatever I wear to the hospital because I don't know what else to wear. Isn't that a funny dilemma? I just can't bring myself to wear maternity clothes home. So I can't pack.
