As a stay-at-home/work-at-home/homeschooling mom, I have one uniform: yoga pants, comfortable shirt and ponytail. Actually, when I talk to other moms, this seems to be a pretty typical mom uniform. It’s easy and comfortable as we run around through the day (or even running around after we change out of our business suit).
Many people make fun of the momiform (see what I did right there?). You always hear about people poking fun at our yoga pants or making comments about our ponytail. Even my 6 year old has started to make comments about my ever present ponytail. “Mommy, I really love your hair down,” she says several times a week as I pull my hair into a pony.
So, I started thinking. I mean, it’s almost like people think us moms just hang out in our yoga pants and ponytails because we’re too lazy to get ourselves together. This couldn’t be further from the truth. So, I decided to set the record straight. The real reason why moms always look like shit.
