Working Mom and the Nanny Doppelganger

Nope, not the title of a comic book... just a slice of my life.

Despite the fact that the weather hasn't been great, I went through that whole Spring - Summer - need to tidy - thing again. Sorted out the closets, cupboards, freezer etc. It was a weird one for me this year, not just because its the first time in 5 years where we haven’t just moved or aren’t about to move, but because I came face to face with a new reality after this year's big purge:

I have a thinner, fitter doppelganger.

Basically, I finally gave up and gave everything that no longer fits me post-baby to Dear A. Now I regularly get to see some of my favorite old outfits on someone who can still pull them off. Annoying.

Maybe I'm just tired, you can probably tell by the frequency of my posts lately, things are busy at home and work, but its tough to see your favorite sweater and cute shoes heading to the park to hang with your favorite little man, while you drag your laptop to the airport for another business trip.

Ok, done complaining. Thanks for listening.
