Friday's Five


Five Reasons you are allowed to still look like this

(In your sweats/pj pants/ old t-shirt/ glasses/ unwashed face/ greasy uncombed hair pulled back)
 at 2:30 in the afternoon.

And yes I know that this picture is unclear. 
It's meant to be - do you really want to see the details clearly?

1  If you are sick.
2  If your kid is sick.
3  If you are cleaning/organizing/exercising/or doing yard work all day - why look good
when you are cleaning?
4  If you spend your days home with a child under the age of 5 - you get a free pass to dress how you want too - it's one of the perks of your job!  
5  If you don't have anywhere you have to go that day and you just felt like it.

Yesterday my reason was #2. 
Had a sick kid home from school. I did a lot of holding and cuddling yesterday.
Today is looking like a repeat day.
I would have still looked like that at 5:30 but I had to go into the post office AND it was my first day to pick up a neighbor boy at school who really doesn't know me.  I didn't want him to go home and say "Mom can you PLEASE just pick me up everyday? Do we have to carpool? That lady got out of her van and I was SO embarrassed." 

When I have days like this and the UPS man drops something off or some random person comes to your door don't you just want to have a sign on you that says, "Don't judge me you don't know how much I can get done wearing these pj pants?" HA!

Enjoy your day - whatever you are wearing!

I so know how you feel! Yesterday I had to run to the grocery store and was debating whether I had enough time to take a shower before going to pick up Corban from pre-k...there was only 15 minutes I had to be there, but after not having a shower for 2 days I decided a speed demon shower before going anywhere might be warranted! :) Some days you just have to go with the pj's and get it done!
