Happiness is....

seeing someone else wear your maternity clothes!!!!

Upon my SIL, Kelly, telling my kids that she was expecting twins last month, I went ahead and bequeathed all my maternity clothes to her.  (Man, I really did have a lot.)  She's 11 weeks (going on 12) now and with it being twins she is already showing.  (Yay!)  So on Saturday we went to Jason's Aunt Sharon's for the day and Kelly texted me on the way up to tell me that her outfit was "sponsored" by me.  I was so happy to see her in a pair of shorts and top from my Caroline pregnancy and a maternity swimsuit from my Bryce pregnancy.  (Wish I'd gotten some photos.)

I was happy for so many reasons...

1.  That she's pregnant and starting to show. (And is looking so cute.)

2.  That someone is getting use out of my maternity clothes that I've held onto for so long.

3.  That she appreciates them so much and they make her feel better about herself.

and last but not least.....

4.  That it's not me wearing them!!

I don't think I can express that enough. I am so ready to be an aunt and not a mom again.  I love how excited my kids are about it (especially Caroline) and that we're just feeling so grateful for Kelly's pregnancy as a family.  But those maternity clothes, yeah, they made me extra happy.
