Well, maybe not...but "The Load of Laundry That Was A Tangible Example of How My Life is Going To Change Once I Have a Baby Boy and Everything's No Longer Pink and Purple" seemed like a bit of a long title.
Let me just say that I'm THRILLED to be having a boy. And not just because we'll "have our boy" and can stop. God-willing, this is just the beginning to a wonderful "quiver full" of arrows. And I'd have been THRILLED to be having a girl...I hope (as was my feeling when I was packing away infant girl things) that I'll again have a little girl to wear the pink monkey sleeper :) among other things.
All that said, as I was doing laundry tonight, I tossed a load from the washer to the drier. It was mostly girls' clothes....and it was a light colored load. I noticed that each toss (my washer and drier are diagonal from each other) was a motley of pinks, purples, and whites...and was really girlie. And I had a moment.
In the next few months, my laundry will change from pinks and purples to blues and greens. It was just a moment when I got a glimpse into the future. Made me think of all the other things that are going to change.
