Mommy Mondays: Sexy Mom v. Saving Mom (the eternal parenting struggle)

Mondays tend to be challenging for everyone. It's often the first day back to work after the weekend and it takes some time to get in the groove. This Monday went a little better than usual though. Yesterday we achieved the impossible. We actually had the house resembling clean before 10:00 PM, which is quite a feat for us. That meant that we were not trying to clean the house in the wee hours of the morning. We actually went to bed at a decent hour. That hasn't happened in months. Because of our productive Sunday I woke up with energy this morning. I also had a car , which was a change from last week. Last week I had to rely on my feet and public transportation .

If you are holding on to your baby weight tighter than your baby holds on to her pacifier...  Or you have been drinking your weight in Budweiser and eating your weight in hot dogs since baseball season started and it has caught up with you. Or you would like to

Most Mothers are Too Sexy For Pajama Jeans

When I was pregnant and on maternity leave I had a revelation, yoga pants are about the most comfortable thing ever made. I even thought that I could happily wear them every day. They were soft, stretchy and forgiving.  They did not restrict me and they never gave me a hard time.  They were not quite manna from heaven.  However, I was so grateful because they were there for me in my time of need. Yoga Pants, A Pregnant Woman's Best Friend Yoga Pants felt like wearing pajamas all day! Although my brain was altered from all of the hormones I remembered what I was like pre-pregnancy.  I was flitting around in constricting skinny jeans and high heeled boots. And although I thought I looked pretty hot, that outfit was not nearly as comfortable as the yoga pants and matching shirts that I wore day after day after day while I was on maternity leave.  I thought that I had solved the fashion dilemma, I could be cute and comfortable!
