But how on Earth do you have time to 'put yourselves together?'
I was noticing today dropping Princess off that most of the other mothers had cute outfits, accessories, hair done, make up, pretty shoes, and shockingly: their toe nails painted.
As I looked at my own ensemble of sweat pants, long sleeve tee shirt, and New Balance running shoes that I have defiantly run in and look it I began to wonder what I am missing. I brush my hair and teeth religiously and sometimes even manage to wash my face (if a full wash is not in the cards then at least a wipe off is) but I rarely wear make up and my toes are pretty much never painted.
Is there some secret mom ritual I have yet to master? With three kids four and under personal grooming often seems to take a backseat to other more pressing issues helping fix a car or reading yet another story....
My summer clothes have a lot of long flowy skirts because my legs my not always be presentable; I usually wear close toed shoes because my toes are not painted.
So what am I missing? Are these moms getting up at 5 am to 'get themselves together'? Or are they super women?
But forgive me mamas for looking longingly at your toes.
