It’s that time of theÂ week again!
You Know You’re a Mom When:
You’re getting dressed to go out toÂ lunch with your hubs & son. Said son is screaming like a banshee and clutching your leg as though he’s never going to see you again being very clingy while you’re trying to get ready. You grab the brand new, beautimus shirt your hubs bought for you while onÂ his trip & you think you are looking “SMOKIN!” You make it to the restaurant & you’re struttin your stuff, yeah that’s right, you know you look good. You get up to go to the bathroom to wash your hands & BOOM! That’s when you notice 2 things about your shirt:
1. It’s see through. And you have on a navy blue bra. Maybe those peeps weren’t staring atÂ you out of sheer jealousy because of your hotness, they’re staring at you because you’re shirt isÂ SHEER!Â And now you’re theÂ hooker in the see through shirt–Fan-flippin-tastic.
2. Not only is your shirt sheer, but it’s on INSIDE OUT! So now I’m a slut &Â an idiot. Double Fan-Flippin-tastic.
You’re grocery shopping & it has turned into the grocery storeÂ trip from hell.Â ButÂ you have to get this trip done because you haveÂ an empty fridge & pantry.Â SoÂ you’re going to suffer through it–the kid is throwing food out of the buggy, climbing up & down in his seat, screaming, he tore the grocery list into pieces & to top it all off people are getting pissed. If I were the kind of person whoÂ gave people the finger, yesterday would haveÂ been the day.Â It definitely didÂ not go well.
It’s time for the baby to go to bed. But he’s so stinkin’ cute & you don’t want to him to because you’re having so much funÂ playing with him. That big grin &Â HUGE laughÂ are so contagious that every.single.worry instantly disappears!
It is so nice to hear you ended your day in a positive way! Funny how the day can all go the heck and in the end they give you a cute smile and it all melts away!
Allyson & Jere says
Laughing, oh LAUGHING at the shirt debacle. How "delightful" to not only be sheer, but INSDIE OUT. I won't lie, I laughed right out loud. I trust you're cool enough that you pulled it off. hahaha
As for the, the kids too cute to put down. Nope, I value bedtime WAY TOO MUCH! Cute or not…down they go. i guess I'm just a big fat meany.
You're right – it's amazing how you can have the day from hell and then you get one smile or laugh and it all goes out the window!
Glad your day ended up good!

I did something similar. The 4th of July with 20+ people at the house, I didn't realize til almost 10pm that I'd been trying to be the Hostess with the Mostest…with my pants on backwards.
Lovin' your blog and I have an award for you at my place: http://bit.ly/ckoEHM

Awww…so funny, so sad, so true. Going shopping has to be one of the hardest things to do with kids. Sorry it didn't go well yesterday. I admit, I often resort to some kind of bribery.
LOL!!!! Kate, I could not stop laughing. We have all been there at some point. I love your great attitude!
SOOOo funny! And oh how I feel for you! I have totally had days like this… well, maybe not inside out see through days, but close! 😉
You crack me up!! I could just picture the whole shirt thing….I rarely have anything new to wear, and could easily go out and about like that, bra showing and all! But I'm sure they were only looking because you were smokin' hot…just stick with that.
Awesome video! I honestly whetacd it at first to see if you really were homeless! I couldn’t imagine someone like you, especially with the way you grew up, being homeless! But I have to say that a few minutes into the video I was enthralled with your message and the person you are!
Mommy's Sippy Cup says
Oh Lord! Sooo been there!
And Davis has a wonderful talent of being super fussy and as soon as I put him in bed, he stares at me and smiles. Then starts laughing. Melts my heart! And can't help but think,'really, now?!'
YAY! You're back! Oh how I've missed you. Let's catch up on email.

haha isn't it amazing how much you can dislike and love your life all in the same day or couple of days!!
Grocery store trips with a one year old is NOT fun! They want to touch EVERYTHING…I feel for you!
WOW! I'm sorry about all that. But I got a GOOD laugh from your "slut and an idiot" line!
2 words: Beige. Bra. Always works 🙂
ericka @ alabaster cow says
i just don't wear any clothes anymore. works for me!!
Funny! I was laughing my big ass off at the slut and idiot part! Hey I love being able to laugh at myself! In hindsight its pretty hilarious…oh who are we kidding? It was hilarious at the moment of humiliation! hahaha!!
As far as the grocery shopping….oh girl! I feel ya! I was imagining my trips to the store while reading your post!
HRH Mommy says
It sounds like you're describing something I would so. Hahaha!!!
You have 2 awards waiting for you on my blog:
Oh, yeah, I've done the sheer shirt thing! Didn't realize it until much later.
And I know what you mean about not wanting to put them to bed sometimes…
OMG girl I'm laughing hard here. You're so good with words! The grocery shopping…oh we have some grocery shopping from hell too.
Arizona Mamma says
Wait a second…your husband didn't even say anything!?!
Mawww. No kids here, and sometimes those kind of stories scare me. But then I read the part about their cute laughing and playing with them, and my ovaries are raging once again. 😉
Sometimes I miss my little girl when she's sleeping. Even when I desperately need the break 🙂 Btw, I just grabbed your button!
