Sometimes there just isn’t enough time for mommy to get ready. We need to be where we’ve committed ourselves but sometimes you never really know what might get in the way of getting there on time.
Here are a few possibilities:
- A conflict of wills.
- A surprise diaper change (just as you’re putting jackets on).
- A surprise upset stomach.
- Spilled milk. Spilled anything. Spilled everything.
- A surprise change of clothes required for parent or child (spilled anything or diaper change).
- Who let the dog out?
- Oops, I forgot….
We probably have an endless list of unpredictable things that may cause us to run late. So, what do we sacrifice to get there on time? For me… It is me. Okay, I guess, I don’t have quite enough time to do my hair or change my shirt or put my make up on.
My latest discovery is lipstick/lipgloss, something on my lips. It works great, no matter if I’ve only had time to run the brush through my hair or if I’ve had to skip any other make up, something on the lips makes it look like I’m ‘ready’, not running late and it makes you feel put together.
