Let's see now...

When Short Stuff and I get home in the afternoons, I'm more than ready to ditch the business suit and pantyhose in favor of frumpwear... er, clothing more suited to racing around like a lunatic with a gleeful toddler.

Since the toddler in question is lightning quick and climbs like the monkeys he loves, its better to bring him into the bedroom with me while I change.

Unless you happen to be standing there in your unmentionables as you're trying to get your pantyhose off and you hear the whirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr of the venetian blinds being yanked skyhigh... the venetian blinds which normally prevent anyone walking past the front of the house from being able to see into your bedroom.

And you drop to the floor in a horrified crouch and crawl toward the the window cord as your child waves frantically with one hand as he pounds on the window with the other to get the attention of the Perfectly Polished group of Uber Mommies strolling past with their perfectly groomed perfectly perfect dogs.



Pride of the neighborhood, that's me.

The Uber Mommies gave me the once-over when, on a walk around the block, I poked my nose into a local theatre foyer to inquire what time the private school were doing their performance that night.Thought I'd like to go out of curiousity. All eyes went straight to the shoes.Fat wooly socks and grubby runners. Nice, but kind of went with my hair at the time.

LOL Oh yes, I recognise this one! Also, the grabbing of your top whilst sitting in the cafe and exposing your bra to the world!

They always have perfect timing. It never happens before you've undressed or after you've put your clothes on. Nope...it's always when you are exposing something you don't want exposed!
