preschool fashionista

ok, i want a shirt or coat or maybe a sign for preschool drop off and pick up line.


i have to get out of the car and walk jk up to the door with all the other momma's and daddy's...and for some reason, i seem to be the only one who isn't fully put together. {hey look, i even wore jeans}


clue: i'm not trying to impress anyone, so pardon my pony tail and baggy eyes...i'm dropping off my kid. did i mention i had to get 3 kids up and ready just to get to this point?


i think i need a sign that i can wear that says,
"i have 4 kids, my husband is traveling and my baby woke up 4 times last night. i haven't slept in 5 years. i need 3 more cups of coffee. and back off sister"

i know i don't look good...but i do know this. i get to shower {sometimes} at nap time, which is like 5 hours from now, so come by and i'll be in my jeans when you've switched on over to jammie pants!

Rebekah said...

LOL- I need a similar sign.

I was always afraid to wear my pjs to drop off kids. I knew that it would be that particular morning that something would happen and I would be standing out in public

Screw them all! You have happy kids and a husband who loves you... AND you're in comfy clothes.

i live in the south, and I'm always suspicious of the "perfectly put together" mommies who get out of the car at 7:30am to drop off kids.

hmmmm.....

((LOVIN the boots btw))

I think you look just fine for preschool drop off! Back in NM when I would drop Kayla off at school most mornings I would quickly throw on a pair of jeans, but leave my pj shirt on (since I was throwing a coat on over it) and just go...I was only walking her out of the van to the gate and then going home to shower. You would see moms at both end of the spectrums...some would be completely made up as if they had been up for hours...and others would be decked out in full pj gear- slippers and all!

Wait, there are people that DO look good that early in the morning?

The kids I nanny for go to a private preschool and all the moms show up to drop their kids off in their workout clothes since they all have full time nannies and can spend the morning at the gym.....doesn't their lives sound nice? Sometimes...then I realize it must get really boring after awhile!

I think you look fabulous!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

You are one fabulous mamma, and it shows!! We've all been in that situation, wishing we had a sign, even those people who look like they haven't. :)

Kristin said...

I often drop off William in my jammies. He is lucky that I don't have to get out of the truck.
PS you look great.

Meaghan said...

I am telling you right now...I got to school the other day, because for some reason with four kids, i've decided to go back to college. Anyway, I got to school and realized that day that I never brushed my teeth!!!!! Not even kidding you. My 11 month old still wakes up 3-5 times a night and I look FABULOUS walking my girls into school. You're not alone...and we should wear a sign...and take pictures of it...and then blog about it =)

nowamomoffour said...

I am laughing my head off right now. I totally feel your pain! I will admit to you, I got to school the other night, because for some crazy reason I decided to go back to college with four small children, and realized I had never brushed my teeth that day. I am with you, getting kids ready and an 11 month old that still wakes up 3-6 times a night really dominates your time! Life can be crazy and our appearance suffers! We should wear signs and take pictures of them and then blog about it =)LOVED this post.

You're a riot! You're more put together than I am at this time of the morning. Givin' you props!!

I think you look exceptional for not sleeping in 5 years! I've only been going without sleep for about 2 years, and I look much worse than you! Hey when you get that shirt made, will you order two, one for me???

Okay, I got to you from your post on my blog... thank you very much... and I am reading backward, sort of, because I had to scroll down to get the name of a song for my son... but I am off on a tangent... what I want to say is "Heck yes!" I am the only one at my pre-school who sometimes hasn't brushed my teeth yet and sometimes Meg is still in her jammies when I walk Connor in... but by golly, I got two boys on two different buses at two different times BEFORE most of those skinny chics even got up! :) hehehe
