Words of Wisdom Wednesday

I am going to start a new series called "Words of Wisdom Wednesdays".  I am going to write just a few nuggets of wisdom I have learned as a working mother of three...all in fun :), every here we go!

One shoulder dresses are adorable and very fashionable...but when wearing one, plan on being away from children.  Not only will a baby be successful in pulling down said dress for the death trap called a strapless bra to show, but even toddlers will embarass Mama at one of you summer festivities.

A child dressed in sweet, clean clothes will always mask a mother dressed in a wrinkled sun dress pulled out of the dirty clothes and deodorant cleaned off with a baby wipe.  A pair of sunglasses and a big ring, makes said mother look simply fabulous.

 Pictures of your children are cute.  Pictures of your children in Instagram, are the most darling thing ever.

Pictures of you are good, most of the time.  Picutres of you in Instagram, are model worthy.

Eating hot dogs for dinner are sometimes boring.  Eating hot dogs for dinner outside in the shade on a blanket is the best dinner ever.  Giving each child a can of soda and a straw, it is like a 5 star meal. 

Waiting on Daddy (or Mama) in the car while they run in Walmart is boring and ususally consists of baby crying.  Waiting on Daddy (or Mama) with the sun roof open, the time goes by too fast!

Mama leaving for work in the morning can be sad.  Mama coming home from work with random pens, paper clips and sticky note pads is awesome!

A pair of wedges around your husband can make you feel too tall.  A pair of wedges in the office can make you feel skinny and in charge.

Fake nails are pretty, but can make you feel like you belong in Jersey.  Fake nails are fun to type with.

An empty desk with no pictures is boring and makes working miserable.  A desk full of pictures of your family and artwork from your kids makes you remember why you work and be thankful.


PS - Love my new look!!? I do!!  Kelly did a great job giving me a new, simpler look!!  I was not easy to work with ;), but she was so patient and got it perfect for me!! Go check her out!!!

Ashley said...

Yes, Instagram makes all pictures look great!
And I don't have kids yet, but I've learned from being about my nieces and nephews what not to wear including tank tops of any kind because they definitely will pull on your neckline before you know you girls are showing! Ahhh!
