It’s the first day of spring but the weather in Ohio somehow doesn’t know it. I am patiently waiting to wake up to a day without frost so that I can start wearing super cute spring clothes like these white jeans with embroidery on them. I found these mid rise embroidered best girlfriend jeans in white at GAP (on sale for $47.99) and they are fabulous. These white jeans are cropped and not too fitted plus the embroidery down the leg is not only on trend but super cute!
My mom uniform is about to get a whole lot more causal this spring. As I look at my schedule I am pretty much ready to cry or put on some cute fashion sneakers and get moving. I am opting for the later and stoking my wardrobe in anticipation for all the kids sports and activities I will be attending. Here’s a break down of my insane life!
Daughter 1: track, 2 dance classes, piano and choir.
Daughter 2: swim, 3 dance classes, choir
Daughter 3: soccer, swim, dance
Daughter 4: dance, swim
Daughter 5: swim, dance
Add to that me trying to take 2 -3 Pure Barre classes a week! My husband got me a one month unlimited pass for Valentine’s Day and I am trying to make the most of it.
Finding work wear that you love is often a topic among women and even though I work from home (on this fabulous little blog of mine) I totally get the need for work appropriate clothes that make you feel amazing. Many of the things other moms wear to work I wear on Sunday to church like these fabulous cropped pants and floral blouse. I have lost some weight and that meant my dress pants no longer fit. While I would love to say I wear cute skirts and dresses to church the reality is I wear pants. I wear pants because I have kids crawling on my lap and this is more comfortable and quite frankly safer for all involved. Also it’s winter and I am lazy and don’t want to shave my legs.
Spring is coming which means more dresses and cropped pants. And with dresses and cropped pants you need fabulous shoes. Even though I am tall I love heels but often those heels come without great comfort and support. Vionic has changed that. I was skeptical before these arrived from Sole Provisions but it’s true, these wedge heels have the orthoheel technology that I have come to love from Vionic.
This week has been a rough one to be a mom. Monday started with a trip to the doctors for an oral steroid for my croupy 7 year old. She has allergy induced asthma and that seemed to be the culprit. Tuesday the 3 year old got her full leg cast off. Like an optimistic fool I thought she would use it, in a limited capacity but still use it. Nope she screamed and cried every time she had to straighten it so walking is not even an option. After several phone calls and a few tears (from me) I have been told it will take about 3 weeks before she is walking and even then probably still with a limp. So we are slowly attempting more and more but having an immobile 3 year old is way harder than you would think.
That brings us to Wednesday when this catholic school mom got the call we all dread… YOUR KID PUKED IN MASS! Oh yes it was the weekly all school mass and my 7 year old had a coughing fit that ended up in projectile vomit. The details are a bit fuzzy on just how bad it was but I am confident there is a custodian and probably several teachers who are not my biggest fan right now (sorry!). We have kept her home ever since as her cough is just not getting better. My poor girl had RVS as a baby which has led to all of her breathing complications, she just can’t ever catch a break in this department.
