welcome to the club

I apologize ahead of time to those that might think that this is TMI (too much info). I just couldn't resist writing about my submission to the reality that I am now a mom. This became very apparent when I purchased my first undergarment item that served my need for comfort over fashion. So it started with a morning that I got my overtired body out of bed only to find hampers filled to the brim with dirty clothes. Brett was at work so that left me alone to care for the boys. Laundry was not an option and the overflowing drawer of my old underwear did not present a single pair of underwear with nearly the amount of fabric I was looking for. The only dental floss touching my body that day was going to be in between my teeth. With the help of a friend I was able to go to Target for some quick shopping. I found myself in the intimates department for some underwear that would not cut right into my c-section incision. This didn't leave me with many options and visions of baggy, belly button hiding, white mom briefs kept running through my head. I found an entire wall of underwear that comes in packages of 3, 5, 6 and some had a 7th bonus pair. Who new this wall existed?? And there they were...the white, cotton, high cut briefs that I have always said I would never wear.

They glistened under the fluorescent lights. So I did it. I purchased them and have never turned back. They have gotten the job done! They won't last forever because with low ride jeans they are sure to poke out at least 4 inches. Not attractive. So it is official, I am part of the mommy club now.

I welcome you with open arms! We are discussing the minivan option, another mom club thing...oh well, you get to a point where it is practicality over vanity!
