I'm not sure if it's a trait that is inherited when you become a mother, but I've seem to be two steps ahead on special events lately. I envision that it's the excitement of celebrating every special occasion for the first time with my son. For example, we're in the beginning of September and I ALREADY know what my Halloween costume is going to be. I'm NEVER this early! It's going to be a "couples" costume between me and Diego. You'll see in October :)
My mother and I walked around at a fair today. It was filled with all sorts of trinkets that - while I think they are cute, I just see items that would clutter the house for the most part. I also couldn't help thinking, "THIS is where grandmas go to get all those weird grandma-like things!"
Of course there were some booths that caught my interest, like the one that sold baby clothes with sayings like:
- Pooh is my homeboy
- You're old
- Well-behaved children rarely make a difference in the world - I wanted to get this one to spite the baby sitter.
