Have you ever been this mom...

Today I was the mom that took her kid to school in pajama pants and flip flops (only dropping off so I didn't even get out of the car). I then remembered on my home that we needed bread and milk...so off to the store I went dressed like I just got out of bed. I haven't been shopping like this in years and feel like I should present a better look for my kids, but seriously I am still in recovery from surgery. LOL

Have you ever done this? Do you feel guilty about it?

  • No I haven't but it's not a huge issue if others do it.

  • Yes I have. Especially when my son would throw a fit about having to go to school and I didn't have time to get dressed. I have also sent him to school in his pajamas. I put clothes in his backpack and told the teacher why he was in his pajamas. She usually got him to change, other times he stayed in his pajamas. A battle not worth fighting.

  • What do the pajama pants look like? Solid colors are fine.

  • I do it alot. Espeically if its getting late or i just feel lazy. i usualy at least do hair and light make up. but i'm not use if i have woken up and went to the store without doing anything to myself. mama whatever you feel comfortable in. let people look. you just went though surgery vs. just plain lazy people.

  • I have done it, but it makes me really uncomfortable. Even if I am still in my work out clothes, I don't really like that either. I think part of it is that I run a local business in a small community and I am usually pretty particular about how I present myself to the community because, after all, you never know who you will run into.

  • I figured as long as Im clean, and Im covered without my boobs falling out or ass-crack showing, Im ok. Ill put my hair up in a pony, put on my sunglasses, and run to the store in I need something in a hurry!!!
