I decided to do a little back to school shopping the other day...yes, since I am an Assistant Principal, I an STILL entitled to purchase new clothes for the start of a new school year :)
But, as soon as I walked into the mall I was overwhelmed...not by the prices of the clothes or the large crowd of shoppers...but overwhelmed because of WHO was shopping...mothers and their children.
I have GREAT memories of school shopping with my mom...picking out a variety of clothes and shoes, sharing the dressing room with my mom as she helped me decide what looked good and what didn't, and then coming home to lay out all of my clothes and decide what outfit I would wear on the FIRST day :)
I know this may sound silly because normally those of us going through infertility have breakdowns when we see other pregnant people, hear about friends getting pregnant, or when we go to baby showers, but I SERIOUSLY had to turn around and leave the mall.
I want to experience school shopping with my child. I want to help him/her pick out clothes and get excited about what he/she will wear on the first day of kindergarden.
So needless to say, I'll have to finish my back to school shopping another day because this wanna-be momma had a Back to School Breakdown :(
