I'm not a bum, I'm a mum

I was at my son's school picking him up from kindergarten. As I looked around I noticed all of the yummy mummies picking up their children. I know I shouldn't compare myself to others, but I couldn't help but feel a little inadequate. I was in my snot covered green t-shirt and jeans, my signature ponytail, an unmakuped (is that a word) face. I have discovered that I have the "haggard Mother" look down. At least I was clean, I did manage to fit a shower in before 3:15 pm. That doesn't always happen. Somewhere along the line I traded in primping for sleeping.

I lost my inner goddess somewhere between the I dos and the birth of my first child. I think it al started with the vomiting that pregnancy brings and made a fast downspiril when I started to wear my husbands clothes because baby made it impossible for mine and maternity clothes were too expensive. Unfortunately it didn't stop there. After having baby #1 I continued to wear his clothes not really thinking it mattered. I've been dressed this way for almost 5 years now and I think its time I looked more like a girl. I need some instruction for my new looseand deflated body and have been tempted to nominate myself for "What Not to Wear" on TLC The only problem is I don't want any closet shots my room is a mess and if they did that they might as well bring along "Clean Sweep".

Let's do it together!

It can be one of those crossover shows because I would love to have a day of make up, shopping on someone else's money and while I'm gone my house is getting clean and organized.

I'm sold, where do we sign up?

Hey they should have the female equivalent of Queer Eye For The Straight Guy.... I actually wonder why they don't....

they do, at least I remember seeing a promo for a female equivalent of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. I think it was on bravo this summer. I don't get bravo, so am not too sure if it aired or if it did if it lasted all summer.
