Currently Mama is having a love-hate relationship with long weekends. While on one hand it’s fabulous to not have to make lunches, wash uniforms and race to school in the morning with grumbly, over-tired kids, the downside is that Mama is completely thrown off for the entire week. These days if Mama doesn’t write down on the to-do list that we need toilet paper or to send the bills, it doesn’t get done. It’s as if pregnancy took Mama’s brain eight years ago and has never really ever given it back to Mama. Sad, but true. No matter how many times Mama reads a blog or a Pintrest tip on how to remember things, Mama forgets it the minute after reading it. Isn’t there a vitamin that helps you regain memory? Like fish oil or something…
Then this weekend Mama decided to catch-up on work and was browsing across some magazines and discovered the Parenting OC Magazine named Mama one of the 15 most inspirational blogs in the area. Mama is HONORED, of course, but then confused because lately Mama has been slacking a whole lot. So now Mama is here to again remind us to live a very stylish, organized and carefree life with screaming but well dressed children in tow.
So now that Valentine’s Day has come and gone, Mama is ready to move on from all the pink and red hearts and get ready for some sweet spring styles. White denim starts to make its way out of the closet, tall boots are swapped for flats, you wear a waterproof anorak instead of a snow parka and you start the search for the perfect bathing suit. Which in Mama’s shopping experience means that you are still searching for that perfect suit ten years later. Let’s wait on the bathing suits for now and just start with a few spring items that are perfectly perfect!
Happy Shopping Mamas! XOXO
