Yesterday morning, first born, Mr.8 came and sat on my bed.
I had just finished getting dresses, I asked,
How do I look?
"You look like a mum who looks after her kids,
and a mum that might have a job"
I then asked the husband, he said,
"you've got the Where's Wally scarf on"
This got me thinking about what we wear and how people see us.
I am a stay at home mum,
all week I had been wearing track pants and hoodies,
it was cosy and warm on a freezing week.
Does he mean sometimes I look like a mum
that does not look after her kids?
I usually wear runners, as I walk up to school each day,
I cook, sew, play, clean (only a little) and garden all day,
so I wear what is comfortable and practical.
I don't feel the need to "get changed" when I am out in public.
This is also the boy that has stuck a few useful notes around the house.
(It's not enough in this house just to have the door shut)
A this handy note on my door on Mothers Day :)
People are who they are, not what they wear,
I have spoken to mums who don't want to get out of the car
at drop off, because of how they are dressed, which is more
about how other people are dressed...crazy!
For the record, I am in tracky pants again today,
have a beanie on as I have not been to the shower yet,
but I have cooked a cake and about to put a second in.
Hope you have a good weekend whatever you are wearing!
