I was at my son’s school picking him up from kindergarten. As I looked around I noticed all of the yummy mummies picking up their children. I know I shouldn’t compare myself to others, but I couldn’t help but feel a little inadequate. I was in my snot covered green t-shirt and jeans, my signature ponytail, an unmakuped (is that a word) face. I have discovered that I have the “haggard Mother” look down. At least I was clean, I did manage to fit a shower in before 3:15 pm. That doesn’t always happen. Somewhere along the line I traded in primping for sleeping.
I lost my inner goddess somewhere between the I dos and the birth of my first child. I think it al started with the vomiting that pregnancy brings and made a fast downspiril when I started to wear my husbands clothes because baby made it impossible for mine and maternity clothes were too expensive. Unfortunately it didn’t stop there. After having baby #1 I continued to wear his clothes not really thinking it mattered. I’ve been dressed this way for almost 5 years now and I think its time I looked more like a girl. I need some instruction for my new looseand deflated body and have been tempted to nominate myself for “What Not to Wear” on TLC The only problem is I don’t want any closet shots my room is a mess and if they did that they might as well bring along “Clean Sweep”.
