Mornings at any mama's house are insane. Trying to get yourself fed and ready to go while trying to get your small humans fed and ready is quite the challenge. My main goals in the morning are:
- Trying to put together a decent outfit that doesn't look like a preschooler picked it out.
- Trying to keep semi-decent outfit free of other people's snot, mashed banana and/or oatmeal.
- Coffee (or Tazo Awake tea).
After three weeks of being sick, I noticed a positive side effect: My stomach was the flattest (or as flat as a twice stretched-to-the-size-of-a-large-mammal can get) it's been since I had my daughter a year and a half ago.
I reached deep into the back of my Ikea Pax wardrobe. There they were, still crisp, still cute and only slightly outdated. My Juicy Couture jeans. I considered Spanx and decided to brave the day without them. Carefully I pulled the jeans up over my cellulite-ridden booty, did up the zipper and then... hallelujah! The button did up! The muffin top barely rolled over the waistband and all was once again right with the world.
Sure, they were bootcut as opposed to the skinny, trouser or boyfriend styles of the present, but I. Did. Not. Care. I was in the tightest jeans I own for the first time in two years! Mom jeans my @$$
What about you? Have you had any awesome mama moments recently?
