What I Wore Wednesday: Mama Style, Mama Fun
A couple of weeks ago I turned 32.
In some circles now, younger women call me the older woman, seeking my advice on motherhood and wifyness. Still, even in my 4 times around the block Mama Body, I feel 21.
It’s started taking one less squirt of lotion to cover my body after Titus was born. I count things like squirts of lotion. I’m 32 now, fine with all my counting, all my kids, the jeans that only fit when I stand. What 32 year old needs to be sitting down anyway?
We’ve got the yard to pick up. The Mailbox to open. Soon its preschool in the minivan (where no one sees your lower half anyway.) No really, I do have places to go and people to see, but put a baby on it, and you can wear anything that you can pull up past your big feet!
At 32, I enjoy myself, value goofiness always, the wearing of my favorite jewelry for laundry time, realizing FINALLY how very few people are actually looking. My boys don’t know it yet, so they peek their heads in the door before they let their friends in. Is she nursing? Is she dancing? Does she have on those tight pants? Is she taking weird pictures for her blog?
Probably so. Probably so. If you’re looking, then you may as well join in. What’s your fun?
This week I wore black (because it blurs it all together). I wore legging jeans and flats. It’s pretty much all because GAP turned out an awesome sale.
More soon on my transition from babywising to babywearing. More soon on my love for cloth diapering and how I’m enjoying my small wardrobe and all my lipgloss. A Mama makes her own fun, people, and this is mine, being girly in a house with 5 males.
In the spirit of two girls (her and her) I miss so so much, I’m joining in on What I Wore Wednesday here and here, though I’ll never pose like they do. I’m more what you call a poser, in that other way. They love me still, and glory be, have invited us all to a little party with grand party favors. I’m there right now eating virtual petit fours.
Also, check out our friends who work in India who’ve created the gorgeous JOYN product line. The Global Shoppe is doing a giveaway of Razorback red textiles that might look something like this!All you have to do is leave a comment at The Global Shoppe.
Full disclosure: everything I’ve encouraged here was done without my receiving anything but high fives and maybe your always encouraging comments. That’s all. Thanks for being my friend.
