(Maggie Zoe Dress)
As a stay-at-home mommy, I'm always a little amused when someone finds out and responds incredulously,
"What do you DO all day?"
There's something inside me that wants to reply,
"Uh, HELLO!!!??? I'm a Super-Hero!"
I wake up; try to squeeze in a shower before the ravenous wolves descend for breakfast, clean up the spilled milk, proceed to dress four people, put on their shoes, then change the said shoes my son has grown out of apparently overnight, head out to the car, go back inside to change my other son's clothes, who has just ripped his shorts climbing the chain-link fence, and put new underwear on my recently potty-trained daughter who "almost made it".
After the damage control, we pile into the car and I discover I've left my keys lying on the counter (again).
I go 'round to look for the spare key (which I probably forgot to return to its place last time I used it) and after grabbing the snacks I left in the fridge, we head out for story-time at the library.
And all this before 9:00 AM!!
It's amazing that any mom (without the help of a full-time nanny) manages to make it out the door with everyone fully clothed, not to mention semi-coordinating.
It's an insane life...I mean, seriously...am I the only one who's ever wondered what in the world I did the two hours I had to primp in front of the mirror every morning?
Oh, well...at least Kenzie looked good. Here are a few of the ways she stepped out in JULY.
