Continuing the new tradition of "Scroll Down Saturday"...Here is a post I did back in October about those "perfect moms" (on Valium) that we all love...
It's entitled..."A Vision in Madras"
As I was dropping Meg at school this morning I glanced over at the swing set. Standing, pushing her son on the swing was a woman who looked so serene I did a double take. She was wearing a strapless madras sun dress, her hair pulled back in a loose bun and she looked so pulled together and carefree I almost rear ended the SUV in front of me. For a moment I thought I was in Stepford. I proceeded to look around for a camera crew. Maybe this was a J.Crew catalog shoot. No go.
Then I glanced at myself in the rear view mirror. Ouch. Hair sticking out in all directions, sunglasses on despite the clouds to hide my puffy eyes. Wrinkled t-shirt and capris and my five year old Ugg slippers.
Do you ladies rise at the crack of dawn and make yourselves pretty before you take your kids to shool or the bus stop? If you do...YOU CAN'T BE MY FRIEND! :)
It's 9:56 am...time to take a shower! There's hope for me yet.
