Getting dressed yesterday was a shocker, but today was more normal. Yesterday there was still room in my brain for bargaining. Maybe I was going through the stages of grief for my pajama-clad, lazy self and today I have progressed to acceptance. That and today I had a playdate at the park and the park frowns upon naked people, in general. So once again I put aside my book reading time in favor of getting dressed. Today I put on jeans (my favs), a t -shirt (one of my favs), and the other glasses, 'cause you gotta mix it up ladies.
|Before - jammies|
|After - Bazinga!*|
The park was great, really great, super great plus 9000 even. The other moms showed up in clothes too, so apparently this is becoming a trend.

But it was also kind of warm. When we got home Gideon immediately stripped down to his diaper for a snack and some relaxation time (What? The kid plays hard, he needs a rest). I was jealous.
|notice the shoes, pants, and shirt just tossed aside. He was done, DONE.|
|Real shoes with actual socks|
|Hanging in there|
Then I remembered that I just got these jeans out of the dryer and I want to wear them tomorrow and my child is a toddler and therefore will explode any minute into several large piles of mess that are likely to get said jeans dirty so I will have to wash them yet again which will make them wear out faster and then I will have to blame the blog challenge for ruining my favorite jeans. We can't have that. And this is how I ended up pantsless by the time my husband got home from work...again.
So maybe I was wrong, maybe there still is room in my brain for bargaining.
*I have noticed that other moms have been putting on make-up, wearing accessories, etc and that is great for them but I only wear make-up if I am being paid to show up somewhere OR if someone is buying me a meal (not just food, but a sit down meal. Coffee or a snack does not get the pretty from me).
