Napkin

How did this happen? I once dressed well, always had perfect hair and make-up and now.......after babies #3 and 4, I have turned into a ponytail wearing, lucky to smear on some mascara, walking napkin. My little ones seem to think that anything offensive on their little faces or hands ( this does does include their noses) is fair game for anything I am wearing. Last night we met another mom and her 3 boys for dinner. When I rushed back home into the door to get the evening routine, which was seriously behind schedule, into play, I notice my reflection in a large mirror and thought.....who is that un-kempt woman??? She looks like a crumped up linen napkin at the end of a 7 course meal! I suppose someday I will miss these days........but as of today, if I have to be a napkin, can't it at least be the nice clean one folded like an elegant swan, BEFORE the meal starts??

And I'm also wondering if I have the word "kleenex" screen printed on all the backs of my t-shirts. Where they heck did they learn that?!?

This made me laugh hard. I hate that I can rarely wear an outfit twice and when I'm dressed up I run from my kids. The really funny part is that I think I started the whole thing when they were little. They would fall down and I'd wipe their hands off on my jeans.....
