Lately, I have been having these thoughts… these thoughts that I should really have everything together. After all, I have a really wonderful life… so I should be able to be wonderful and pulled together in it. I should be able to do my workout in the morning, remember to take a shower, look nice, make full meals, and plan fun things for my kids school days, bake my own bread, make sure that everyone brushes their teeth, read bedtime stories and grow nourishing incredible food. My inability to get all of these things done each day (and more) was weighing on my self-esteem. I spent weeks wondering why I just couldn’t keep up with the laundry. Why every time I walked out of the house for even just a little while to myself, I came home and found 25 things I should have been doing?
I needed to get real. The truth is, as much as I get done in a day, I still can not ‘do it all’. My kids nails go unclipped, we miss whole school days because I haven’t done laundry in a week and it is threatening to take over the school room, sometimes my kids eat nothing all day but apples and granola bars. Often I wear a shirt with baby spit up on it because I am avoiding putting the one I have on in my laundry Mt Everest.
So, In honor of my ability to pull my hair into a pony tail so I can skip a shower, I will share with you my daily uniform.
Hair up, t-shirt over tank top over industrial strength nursing bra, a pair of jeans, and Cons.
Does anyone else have a daily uniform? If you do, please share!
