Friday High Five


I don't want a Friday to go by without playing along with Angela over at Angela's Adventures and Minor Mishaps. Here's my Friday High Five fun!

FIVE EXAMPLES OF MY FORGETTING TO WORRY
ABOUT MY APPEARANCE AS MOMMY ON THE GO

  1. I rushed through my peanut butter & jelly sandwich so that I could get to the bus stop at time. Of course, a kind mom pointed out that I had evidence of that peanut butter lunch still on my face. I have to schedule napkin time for myself.

  2. One time, I was not thrilled to discover that my quick pony tail in the morning was not the best look for an entire day. I looked like Pippi Longstocking (remember her?).

  3. I'm lucky if I remember to put on any makeup before heading out. Don't you just love those comments from "concerned neighbors": "Kelly, you're so pale. Are you feeling well?" My reply: "Welcome to my face in its natural state!"

  4. When I was younger and single, I would rotate my outfits. Now the same pants may come back in the rotation after 2 days. After cleaning them, I just put them on top of the "get dressed quick" pile. People must think that I own only 2 pairs of pants!

  5. Just call me rushing Kelly. Have you ever had a moment at a crowded bus stop when you say to yourself, "Did I put on my deodorant?" That doubt can bother you for those 5 long minutes.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope to get to your blogs tonight :)

Haha! I understand about the face thing. I looooovvvveee when my coworkers say, "You look like you don't feel well. Did you get enough sleep last night?" GRrrrr...

Jenn@the loves of jenn said...

I know...what's with people saying "you look pale" or "you look tired". I always want to say well, I am tired and I am also pale so there you go!
Check my blog later this afternoon, we find out gender of the baby today!!!! :)

LOVED this! I totally feel like you get me!

Janna Qualman said...

"napkin time" LOL!

I get it. I so do, says Janna, she who is very forgetful and scatterbrained.

So cute! I have the pants issue too. I am addicted to my comfy pants even though they are seriously eroding. But I still wear them out in public with at least 20 OTHER pair in my closet. Pippy Longstocking is obviously EVERYWHERE in this country. She is the Statue of Liberty of Sweden. The Maple Syrup of Canada. The Eiffel Tower of France. Ok that was lame...The point is, I can soooo picture it!

Wow! These are great! My appearance definitly suffers as a mom. I constantly havde stuff splilled on me, my shirt is stretched out from kids pulling on it.... not to mention the physical body characterisitcs! Yikes!

When I got married, I swear I'd never let myself go....Then life set in

Dani said...

Awe yes. :)

Dan said...

Given I'm a guy, the thought of make-up never enters my mind. The concerned neighbors I run into are more likely to ask where my hair went than to comment on how it looks. {*grin*}

But I will fess up to my comfort shorts, holes and all. They get worn on a pretty regular basis.

He & Me + 3 said...

I love it. I always wonder what I forgot to do like put on deodorant. I mean if i get out of my morning routine...no telling what I will miss. so funny.

Naqvee said...

loved it!

T Rex Mom said...

How many times have I gone out with pee or poop or spit up my clothes! Sounds like there are other things for me to look forward to!

H F W said...

I always have loved the pale comment, too. People really should realize that it doesn't sound like a concerned statement!!

kisatrtle said...

I've done every one of those things.

Dan Felstead said...

Septembermom...that is a great post to begin the weekend with!!! Thanks for the laughs.

Have a great one.

Dan

Viv said...

#3 a hoot.. great list!

Flory said...

These are funny. I don't get to put my makeup on until I get to work, and I have occasionally forgotten to put on deodorant. Thank goodness for air-conditioning.

Michelle said...

If it makes you feel any better, at the chiro today the receptionist -- ON MY WAY OUT, so after being there for a half hour and talking to many people and being adjusted and PT'ed -- told me I had some mascara on my eyelid. Ummm nope, when I went into the bathroom to check that would be a huge glob of liquid eyeliner that got there somehow (it wasn't there when I walked out of the house) and was obvious to anyone who looked at me. grrr.

And crowds? Stand still with lots of people -- they'll never know who forgot the deodorant. And don't disperse until they do ;)

Judith Ellis said...

Yep!So, what's my excuse? I don't even have any children. :-) I LOVE Pippie Longstocking! She was a favorite!

Mon said...

"Welcome to my face in its natural state!"

LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There's a line in The Women film (not great) where a cosmetic sales assitant is offering something or other and the mature character (Annette Benning) retorts with, 'this is my face, deal with it.'

Shan said...

Oh that could be me too!

Becca said...

HAHA! You are hilarious! Thanks for giving me five more reasons why I should not have any more kids!

Jenners said...

I am right there with you if that makes you feel better!

Kim said...

When I was on maternity leave, I wore the same three outfits for the entire year. I loved not having to buy new stuff all the time. It's hard to get away with this at work:(

I love those comments from people - Are you okay? You look so tired. Have you been crying?

Thanks - why don't you just say what's really on your mind - You look terrible today.

Gerri said...

LOL, I can relate to each one. Because I work an hour from home, I now carry lotion, toothbrush, deodorant, and make up in my car at all times. I have truly considered also carrying a full change of clothes and shoes too. Hmm....

Angela said...

Girl I am right there with you! I miss meals simply because I forget! I used to change my purse EVERY. SINGLE. DAY so it would match my outfit. Out came the second child and out went that little habit! I am lucky to change it three times a year now.....really lucky!! Makeup.....what's that? I look ten times better with makeup on and I hate it when people say, "Are you tired?" NO I just don't have mascara on! Ugh.....oh the joys of motherhood!
