reality check... or reality bites???

today when i looked at myself in the mirror after getting dressed i thought to myself, "i look like a mom". ouch and a half. i mean, obviously i am a mom because i have a kid and an oh so prominent bump announcing to the world that number two is on the way. but sometimes i like to think that if i didn't have the kid or the bump, people might not look at me and automatically assume that i've taken on the roll of motherhood. they might think that i'm just a young, hip, totally with it twenty-something girl. but as for today, i don't think so. i think they'd see "mom", the way i did, practically written across my forehead. i love being a mom, but i don't love looking like a mom. maybe it's just like a bad hair day and tomorrow will be better. (sigh) one can only hope...

I feel you...I have been there...or currently am there...? Don't worry Kat, you look like a super hip twenty something mama to me. I might make fun of you later and call you a total MOM if you and Maggie wear matching jumpers for every season....hahaha I hope it will never come to that. But until then you are one hot mama!
