A strange side effect.

As my husband is well aware, in the last oh…six months or so I have begun collecting clothes. Cute sweaters, shoes, new pants and skirts and my very favorite…DRESSES! I’ve really begun to rediscover my style and what I am comfortable wearing and not. Sometimes I buy something and wear it for a few and then decide I HATE it. That stinks.

It started the other day when we were headed to soccer, I came downstairs dressed in leggings, boots and sweater and *gasp* accessories, TOTT looked at me and said “Whoa! Where are you going?” I said “SOCCER!” Then reminded him that when we met I used to wear clothes and make up and like comb my hair and stuff!
The next morning I came downstairs in jeans, a tank, a cardi, and a long necklace. Boss took one look at me and said “Where we going Mommy?”

So. According to my boys, my actually wearing clothes- even totally casual clothes- is a special occasion. Duuuuuuuude. That’s not cool. Someday soon I hope that they will just accept that if Mommy is dressed and has like, lip gloss on, it’s NOT like a stop in your tracks event.

Luckily for me I had an actual place to go this weekend! Like three of them! Soccer, our very first preschool birthday party for Boss’ best friend and then the final day of Listen To Your Mother auditions. So yeah…Mommy IS dressed and she’s going somewhere! Yay. Me.

The side effect of this is, I not only want to get dressed now but I DO want to go places! The only real question is; wants to go get coffee? Complete with crazy toddler and snuggly 8 month old?
