When I "signed on" to be a mom, I never thought I would be the kind of mom that I am today....well, I didn't really have any preconceived notions at all, but I look at myself every once in awhile and say, wow....LOL  not always in a good way, but wow hahaha

Today, I'm the mom in pajamas.  I've made no effort to do anything more than pull my hair in a ponytail (for myself at least).  My girls, are dressed, are on their lunch now have had multiple diaper changes and potty breaks and the usual "mom scrutiny" of every booger on their face or bruise on their arm.  

It's funny, most days I change out of my pajamas into my workout clothes, I jump on my elliptical and do my morning workout.  After that, I take a quick shower....and put pajamas back on (or some other outfit that I would never leave my house in).  When did I become the mom that doesn't even get dressed most days?  lol  I'm not overly uncomfortable with it, because there's no need to dirty clothes when I'm not leaving the house.  And no, I don't particularly get my clothes dirty, my kids manage to make all of my clothes dirty....with food, drink and whatever else they see fit to smear all over my pants and shirt.....

If I'm leaving for the day, that's a different story.  I'll actually do my hair, throw on a little makeup and put some effort into my clothes (usually jeans and a t-shirt).  I just occasionally long for the days when I had a reason or excuse to get dressed or dressed up.  I haven't worn a dress in a really long time....I feel overdressed if I put a skirt on lol.  I think I'm going to step out of my zone on this one.....

Tomorrow's agenda, to put on some nice clothes and do something with my hair and makeup.  Just to see what the difference is for the day.  I wonder if I'll accomplish more?  If I'll step out of my routine and actually make something exciting happen?  It's time to do something silly and different and see how it goes......Tomorrow, I'll be June Cleaver.

Tomorrow, I want all my pajama moms to join me!  Let's all get up and put some nice clothes on, do our hair and makeup and go about our day!  I want to hear how it goes for you, and I promise I'll let you know how it goes for me!

Friend me on facebook, I promise I don't bite!
