You’re Never Fully Dressed.

0 Permalink

Yesterday late afternoon we attended a birthday party for one of our neighbors.  The kids didn’t have school during the day so I took them to the Museum of Science in Boston.

When we got home I realized I had The D Man’s lunch all over me and hadn’t showered yet.  I set the kids up with an activity on the bathroom floor, showered in 6 minutes and got dressed in less minutes.  I struggled into a pair of jeans that had been washed for a week but still lay unfolded on my floor.  I grabbed my favorite black tank top from the top drawer because I love how it sucks in my belly and no one had to know it was Maternity right? My parents had just returned from Turkey and brought back a skull and crossbones scarf that reminded them of me (hmmm.) I draped it around my neck hoping it would hide any possible encroaching side boob.  As I was heading out of my closet something sparkly grabbed my eye on a higher shelf.  It was an ear cuff that my best friend sent for my birthday back in April.  I hadn’t worn it yet.  I wrestled with the earring while I dragged two little monkeys hanging onto my feet into the car.   When I got to the party almost everyone commented on how put together I looked.  Put together? I laughed to myself realizing I hadn’t yet looked in a mirror.  (I’m getting to the point of this story and I swear it’s not a humble brag.)  As Moms we don’t typically have the luxury of time to analyze an outfit or pick out the perfect complimentary accessory. But what I’ve learned over the past 4 years is that it really doesn’t matter.  Grab something and go. Remember to put on a different piece of jewelry from time to time.  Invest in an awesome pair of sunglasses.  Don’t discount your favorite Maternity tank top.  But most importantly, and what I always tell my daughter when she asks,

“Mommy do I look beautiful?”
“Are you smiling!?”
“Yes”
“Then yes baby, you are truly beautiful.”
