The Mom Uniform

Do I own more than one pair? Yes. Why? Because they're simple, comfy, and...well, just look at the reasons below.

1. Because yoga pants are stretchy and comfy and forgiving. They don’t care if I’ve polished off my daughter’s mac n’ cheese every day for five weeks running.
2. Because yoga pants are black and they hide (almost) any kid schmultz my son spreads on me.
3. Because yoga pants are “athleta-wear” and I lie to myself and say I’m going to exercise and I don’t want to change twice.
4. Because my muffin-top doesn’t flop over my yoga pants like it does in jeans. I can almost tuck it in, Spanx-style, into the top of my yoga pants.
5. Because they’re easy to pull on and those 20 seconds it takes to zip and button my jeans aren’t seconds I’m willing to spare.
6. Because my fashion sense died when I had kids.
7. Because I’m too busy packing snacks, making lunch, fixing breakfast, braiding hair, finding matching socks, stuffing backpacks, putting on shoes to spend time on myself.
8. Because I rarely leave the house anyway.
9. Because who the hell am I dressing up for? An audience of preschoolers?
10. Because I don’t really give a crap.

            I never stay clean. As soon as I step out of the shower and put fresh clothes on, they stay clean for maybe ten minutes--if I'm lucky. After that, I have a variety of mysterious stains and odors on my shirt and pants. My son does not spit up as much anymore so at least my cleavage stays clean and my shirt for just a little longer than the normal 5 minutes. LOL
