I was doing some pregnant woman bonding with a woman I happened to see in the maternity section of the store on post. She is due in 10 days and her husband just left for training in Louisiana. He *hopes* to be back around the due date, but the training is scheduled until mid-May. This baby is their first.
She has a doula, which is great. And she told me that her mother-in-law is coming this weekend to be with her and help her, especially in case her husband doesn’t make it home in time. Then she paused and told me that I reminded her of her mother-in-law.
I am sure that her mother-in-law is young and hip.
And I’m seriously considering the need to wear makeup every day.
