Little Reminders

It was a perfect morning...or at least that's how it all started...

I had plenty of time to get ready before baby woke up {a rare occurrence}. And by the time J woke up, he was plopped onto our bed for kisses and hugs from mommy and daddy. It was your classic Brady Bunch moment. Basically a breath of fresh air from the disaster of a week we'd had. 

But then, things took a turn for the worse.

Just as J had gotten his last diaper change before we headed off to daycare it happened...

projectile vomit.

All over the baby. All over me. All over the nursery.

Fark.

So, J got new clothes. I got new clothes. And the nursery? Well, it just got a quick wipe-down. A full-on cleaning would have to wait until my lunch break because we were now running about 10 minutes late.

We finally got in the car and drove the 30 seconds to daycare only for Baby J to throw up again!

That's ok though because I keep an extra set of clothes for him at daycare.

Wrong.

His extra outfits were all too small. When did my baby get so big?! So, I headed back home to find him some clothes. Of course, everything was dirty except for my non-favorite outfits.

As I rummaged through his 3-6 month basket of clothes I pulled out a little onesie that reads "Mommy Loves Me." I'll be honest, I don't care for this onesie. But? It came with three other onesies that I loved. So, I bought it.

I mean seriously, why do they write stupid stuff like "mommy loves me" on baby clothes?

Well, my friends, on this Friday morning that question was answered.

It's not so that the baby knows his mommy loves him. Duh, they can't read. It's a reminder for us moms on days when the baby vomits all over your favorite sweater, his new outfit and the clean sheets you had just put on the bed. It's for frustrated, frazzled mommies to look down at that "bundle of joy" and be reminded by three simple words that she does not in fact want to give her baby to the first person whom offers. Because? Mommy does indeed love that baby.
