So, here’s my confession….I really want to be one of “those” moms. I see moms dropping their kids off at school that look like they have been up for hours doing hair and make up and picking out the perfect outfit.
I wear a pony tail in my hair almost everyday…I have to do this because the time required to actually fix my hair is impossible to find. I’m lucky if my hair is even fully dry when I leave for work. I spend 5 minutes on my make up max. This is usually done in the rearview mirror, at the stoplight, while driving my kids to school. I want to know how to cook…not just a frozen dinner. I’m trying, but really…who has the time?! I find it so frustrating! I want to have beautifully decorated house…not decorated in whatever toys the kids “forgot” to put away. I want to take a bath or a shower, with out my kids busting in to tell me who did what to who. Is it just me???
I look at some of these moms (and no offense if you are one of “those” moms), but how the heck do they find the time? I’m lucky if my shoes match my outfit. Forget the Prada purse, I’m doing good grabbing whatever bag the kids “forgot” to put away. So, now you know: I go to work in a pony tail (with partially wet hair), little to no make up, shoes that don’t match, and a Phinneas and Ferb lunchbox for a purse.
I want to look pulled together and my house to look pulled together and my dinner table to look pulled together…any advise for those of us challenged in this area? I can coupon all day long. I can shop for 6 on a $40 budget and feed us all week. But I do not know how to find time. The more I try to find the time, the more I feel like I’m either taking away time from the kids…or I’m doing what I do best and refereeing the kids. So, I know I’m supposed to be the one “giving” advise…but I could use some right about now 🙂
