*Lives the mama life at home for five days.*
Me: Today is a “me” day. I deserve it. I need to relax.
Me: I should have stayed home.
This happens to me all the time. Can you relate?
I have been off for several months now and my oh my how time flies. Its hard to believe that I have just over a month and a half at home before I rejoin the rat race or in other words become a working mother. Am I ready? I am not sure. The sobering reality is that I have a few goals that I want to cross of my list and working is going to be a huge help.
I was fortunate to have one of my Executive Managers from my in town for business. Once here he asked to catch up. Desperate to find out whats been happening whilst I have been on maternity leave I immediately responded to the invite with a quick YES! Maybe a little too keen – but luckily I didn’t scare him off – as he was eager to meet my little one more so than catch up with me.
Accepting the invite was probably the easy bit. What was going to be difficult was finding something to wear. Firstly, I wanted to find something that was flattering to my current shape. I am just not ready to wear my super tight body con ala Kim Kardashian dresses. Give me time. Secondly, I am still breast feeding. This means that what ever outfit I picked I had to make sure that I could comfortably whip out my “milkshake” and nourish my child.
Surprisingly it wasn’t too hard to decide what to wear in the end. Perhaps motherhood is making me more decisive? With limited time to make a decision I settled on a humble oversized white shirt dress. As I put on the freshly ironed shirt I immediately felt chic, pulled together and confident that I would be able lunch and carry out my motherly responsibilities with no fear of a wardrobe malfunction.
