That doesn't make any sense! Or does it...?

Between the fact that I look like I've eaten all the pies, and I'm sick to death of endless laundry, I thought I might use some of Fiona's afternoon nap (and Ben's hard earned money) for internet shopping and buy some new shirts.

I'm cheap, so I don't usually shop in Gap, but I thought I should check out their online sale items because sometimes you can get a really good deal. I thought that maybe if I was wearing maternity clothes already, I'd look more pregnant and less cream-filled.

After searching though many lovely options, I came to the 'shoes' section. "Huh" I thought to myself "I wonder what makes those different from normal shoes?" and assumed they were more supportive, extra comfortable, maybe had a built in foot massager... something along those lines. You can imagine my surprise on scrolling down to find... these!


Huh......wha...?

Well, I guess strippers get pregnant too, but really, I cannot imagine tottering around on these pregnant or not! Bizarre...

But then it all became clear... in the 'about this product' section I found this...

Now it makes sense!! We've all seen the movies and sitcoms... when you go into labour, your water always breaks all over your shoes. It's bound to happen. Knowing this, the most important thing a pregnant lady can have is wipe clean shoes! Thank you Gap for making such a useful, thoughtful product. I'm ordering a pair in each colour.

You pregnant ladies these days get all the cool products. When I was expecting Andrew the stores were still only offering big baby outfits for pregnant moms to wear...not wipeable stripper shoes!

Wow, I can't wait to see what else Gap comes up with for pregnant ladies by the time I'm having a baby!

Cathy - I do feel blessed. I'm just so lucky to have options like these!

Michelle - neither can I! Maybe wipe clean trousers to match?

I may be done having children, but if I push my belly out in just the right angle, I could pull off looking 6 months. Do you know if they have those shoes in "glow-in-the-dark"?

Lori, I think you might have to check out Gap in Vegas for that option...
