i am frumpy on the outside...

You know those moms that have cute dressed kids and then you look from the kids to the mom and you are like...poor mom. THATS ME!!!!

I wake up in the morning and throw on whatever somewhat fits. It's bad people! lol.

I did, however, finally throw away a shirt after wearing for several weeks with 2 holes in it. Shhh... sometimes I even still wear my stretchy maternity pants. Yes, these are the confessions of a working mom that just doesnt have time to care about her attire. I've bought new clothes for the boys and for Nathan... but making the effort to go clothes shopping with 2 kids...yeah...too much effort. Well, you say, why not just leave the boys home with Nathan? Well, I could do that, but then that would mean wasting a few of my "home from work" time with the kids to go spend money that I could be spending on the boys on myself! Its a vicious cycle.

So I wear holey clothes that don't fit. I get "mom" hair cuts because I dont have time to spend on my hair. I call a swipe of blush and mascara putting on a full face of make up.

My answer to this: Don't look in the mirror! And It WORKS!!!

So Long as one avoids mirrors (full length ones are sent from the devil) then one can imagine that she looks like this! I think motherhood has made me too practical. SO, strategies to combat "frumpy mom syndrome" besides the current "imagining that I look hot every day" strategy... which in my head works great but not so much in the physical..

1. Wake up earlier.... ick

2. Stop buying the kids stuff they dont need and use the money on me.... sounds kinda selfish, but really who wants a frumpy mom.

3. Buy online thus saving myself the trip to the store to try things on.... might work if they have a good return policy.

4. I'm out... Suggestions?

Oh and on a different although someone related topic... Jonah is almost "day potty trained"!!!! Yay!!! Oh and he started T-Ball...and spent most of yesterdays game in the tennis court running around (or going back and forth for donut breaks) because that was more fun than waiting in line to bat or waiting for a ball to be hit to him in the field. ha! oh well, as long as he has fun! :)

And here's lucas watching the game with Grandma.

We stole these pics from Aunt Tasha....(Thanks for taking pics of my kids and posting them so I can steal them for my blog!!!!)

And here's some other pics from our weekend. We finally celebrated mothers day with my mom at Tasha's, we played T-Ball, we played at home. We (jonah) got an ear infection from playing outside in the cold for too long. So I dont like my kids to be sick... but he was SOOO cuddly and quiet!!! It was a good weekend! :)

I changed my time in blogger land to Fiji Time! Why Fiji time you ask? Cuz I wish I was in Fiji right now!!!!

Hope everyone is enjoying their spring!!!
