Shirt: Wrapper| Skirt: MNG Jeans | Necklace: Premier Designs
Leggings: Old Navy (Maternity) | Boots: Big Buddha
Remember the sweater I wore on Thanksgiving? This skirt is
another new-to-me piece thanks to my sister-in-law. I finally found
all my leggings, including these super comfy maternity ones. (No you
didn't miss a pregnancy announcement, these leggings are just that
awesome that they get used out of "season", so to speak.) Oh yeah, and
this necklace is new courtesy of a Premier Designs party. I generally
don't buy accessories because I usually don't wear them, but I have a
similar gold-toned necklace (I wore it here) that gets more use than all
my other necklaces combined, so I thought I might actually wear a similar silver-toned one. I was proud of myself for remembering to throw it on this morning.
This outfit should be titled, "What I Wore When My Baby Was Sick and I Had Five Minutes to Get Ready." Wonderful mother that I am, I gave Lucia the nasty cold I had last week. (It undoubtedly was gifted it from one of my lovely students.) She stayed home with my mom while David and I enjoyed Mass without a little one crawling all over us. I got to listen to the entire homily, but I would have much rather had my sweet pea with us. Mass just isn't the same if we can't enjoy it as a family.
I feel like I also experienced my first "I HATEworking outside the home" moment this morning. I enjoy teaching, and working only three days a week generally gives me much of the flexibility of a stay-at-home mom. But with Lucia being sick, she can't go to the babysitter's and both David and I work tomorrow. It's not easy for either of us to find someone to cover for us, much less on such short notice, and all I could think was, "My baby's sick and I have to work instead of care for her." Thank goodness, my sister-in-law saved the day (as she often does) and is coming to watch her niece tomorrow. I don't know how moms (including stay-at-home moms) survive without family nearby.
