Yesterday I went out alone and headed to A Baby Affair in D.C. – an expo showcasing the best in mom and baby brands and businesses.
The expo, presented by Let Mommy Sleep, a local organization who provide overnight care to newborns to allow parents to sleep at night and thrive during the day (I know I could use their services when my husband is away, hint hint) also included a fashion show by local Old Town, Alexandria boutique Apple Seed Maternity and Baby Boutique.
So yes, I was excited! Mostly because I got to put on proper makeup, wear a nicer outfit, use my new handbag without having to stuff diapers into it, wear a necklace (remember, a baby’s grip is lethal and I can’t use them anymore) and see a few of my friends.
I felt good. Especially after dealing with a serious case of the baby blues the past few weeks. I really needed to get out and socialize without a child attached to my leg or in my arms.
