The "Made Up" Moms at School

I just don't get it. I really don't. It's 8am, and your taking your kidlets to school. You walk them up to the door, and there they are. The "Made Up" moms. You know the type - freshly showered, dressed in designer jeans and heeled boots, hair perfectly coiffed, and make up flawlessly in place. What the???? What time do these ladies wake up in the morning to achieve that?

When I was working outside the home, I could look that way too by 8am. But we are talking about a bunch of SAH moms here. Personally, I look forward to my shower when I get home from taking the kidlets to school. No "mom, mom, mom" when I'm shaving. No one walking into the bathroom asking me where their math book may be hidden. No interruptions. Period. I savor that morning shower every day.

In the afternoon, you will find me at pick-up showered and clean, but I'm not there to impress anyone, so don't expect make up and coiffed hair every day. (Oh, and I probally have stubbly legs under my discount jeans.)

I love this log! (Just found your blog thru Bonanzle btw). I was a teacher assistant for a few years and the Mom's like that drove me crazy! Not even the teacher's look that good most mornings.

I don't get it either. And now kids are doing their own version of that. I was at my little sister's cheerleading and all the girls in the stands were totally made up, designer sweaters, hair and make-up done - BUT - now get this - they were wearing Sweatpants with UGG boots over them! Wow - to dress up to look dressed down? I just don't get that. If I want to wear pajamas - it's because I haven't changed yet!
