Last month I hit the mall with a friend to help her shop for maternity clothes. She is having her first baby and was overwhelmed at the thought of having to select pregnancy attire. Special undies for pregnant women? Belly bands? Maternity bras fit for nursing? She was entering into new territory and asked me to be her trusty guide. L’il Buddy and I went along to offer our invaluable assistance. Once we arrived at the maternity store though, I realized just how much times have changed in the 3 years since I was in the maternity game.
The place looked like Disney World for pregnant families!
Exhibit C: A Bright, Padded, Contained Kids Play Area to Keep Little Ones Entertained While You Shop.
And Exhibit D:
The Piece de Resistance. A Waiting Area for Dads Equipped with Manly Magazines, La-Z-Boys and a Flat Screen TV!
Between this and the maternity line at LOFT, I totally got gypped!
