It's Okay. I Wore Pearls Today.

I woke up late and rushed to get ready but remembered to wear my pearls today.

As I was leaving the house, Baby Girl spit up all over my shirt; it’s okay, I wore pearls today.

I’m almost to the car and realize I left my coffee on the counter so back into the house I go because I can’t make it through the morning without caffeine. Of course some spills on me during the drive, but it’s okay because I wore pearls today.

Arrive at daycare to be greeted by the cutest classmates ever. They are so adorable and friendly that they greet my pants with slobber; it’s okay, I wore pearls today.

I feel like I have run a marathon and am sweating by 9:30 am; it’s okay, I wore pearls today.

Forgot to bring my notepad to the meeting, but it’s okay because I wore pearls today.

There is no way its only 12 pm; I swore it was at least 3 pm, but at least it's lunchtime and I packed my lunch. Crap, I left my lunch in the car so it looks like I’m buying again. It’s okay, I wore pearls today.

Are my underwear inside out? It’s okay, I wore pearls today.

Tons of traffic on the way home and my gas light is on so I try not to panic about running out of gas; it’s okay, I wore pearls today.

I feel like I am losing my mind, but at least I think I look like I have it all together because I wore pearls today.

Let the evening routine begin, but this time the sweat pants are going on!

Cheers, T

Recently, I have seen a few articles about post-delivery that people may find surprising. The articles tend to list scary things such as wearing big pads after birth and bleeding for an eternity. All of these things are true, but I have found that the year after birth brings its own bag of surprises. Don’t be surprised when you wake up every day and your body hurts. Pre-baby I felt no pain, and now something hurts every day. No joke, the Icy Hot is my best friend.   Read more >

I Am So Not a Morning Person

I am not a morning person. If you’ve seen me whining on Facebook, you might have suspected this about me. If you’re a morning person, please don’t hate me. I really can’t help it. It doesn’t matter if I go to bed at six in the evening and sleep until six or seven. There are slight differences in how I feel if I’d had three hours of sleep and the requisite eight. Slight. When I open my eyes in the morning, I feel like I got hit by a truck. Or eaten by wolves and then pooped over a cliff. Or the smashed bug on your windshield.   Read more >
