The mom uniform...we all know it and most of us stay at home moms wear it daily. Some sort of excersice pants or shorts, jeans or khaki shorts. Then up top, a tshirt. Not a clean tshirt mind you, a dirty tshirt. Now it did not start out dirty, in fact, when I get up and shower I feel very clean and fresh and put on very clean and fresh clothes..then it happens...the children. You find yourself in a sweat by 9am, trying to get to the bus stop on time, buckling 3 others in the car, waffles, cereal bar and chocolate milk smeared across your front, dirty tissues shoved in your pockets, and you are not even out the door to your first of 15 errands for the day. WELL, it must stop! I have a new resolution! I am going to be clean! Now this may sound like a minimal thing but it is a BIG DEAL for most of us SAHMs. I am going to try and wear clean clothes when I go out. MAybe not out for errands, but at least out most of the time. Just in the past week, I have found myself changing shirts and or pants at least 4 times in a day in order to stay clean. The downside now is the amount of laundry this n has added to my day and you KNOW how I feel about laundry. Maybe I should tweek the resolution a bit, maybe just be clean when I GO OUT or maybe just be clean on the weekends. Oh well, whatever I work out at least it is a start.
