I give moms a bad name

Note to self: when going out in public -- even if it's just to the grocery store for donuts dinner -- check your entire person for small toys that may be catching a ride (say, a large puzzle piece peeking out of the cuff of your cargo pants) or for Gerber puffs that may be stuck to your clothing in embarrassing places (like your butt).

Apparently, making a fool of myself at the supermarket is something I'm good at.

This could easily happen to me as I never look in the mirror anymore. (In fact it might have) I might as well not even have one since becoming a mommy!

Hehehehehehe. I don't think there is a mom out there who cannot relate to this post. :-)

Shoot I go out all the time with smears of food on my shirts and pants. I count myself lucky if I go somewhere with completely clean clothing. I was going out on a day date with my husband and my parents were there to watch the kids. I was in contact with them less than half an hour and I still left the house smelling of maple syrup from a hug given to me by Harry who had it all over his body (he is not a neat eater).

What's wrong with a Gerber puff on your butt? Isn't that considered creative-accessorizing-while-keeping-snacks -within-arms-reach-at-all-times?? hehehe. If you give moms a bad name then what the hell am I doing??

You're not giving us a bad name, you're helping us laugh at ourselves.

Puffs on your butt? :) tee hee hee. (I can laugh at you because I'm your friend and I know the day is coming when it'll happen to me. We're generally 3 months behind you and Fly, so so when it happens to me, you can point and laugh, too!)

It is always good to help someone else giggle a little. That is very kind of you. :)

I'm lucky just to smell halfway decent these days! Sounds like you at least had on matching clothes.

Those puffs are *very* sticky when wet! There should be a warning on the package.
