If only life were a bit more glamorous

I'm not exactly the kind of woman who puts on some fresh lipstick in a two-minute-break between contractions during labor, because she wants to look nice on the first post-birth pics (which was probably one of the reasons why I looked so terrible in those pics ;)). In fact I'm not glamorous at all, and especially in these first few months with a new baby there are plenty of days being spent in pajamas here. It's only a bit of a shame that my buying behavior doesn't really match this shabby lifestyle...

Do I have lots of gorgeous party dresses and high heels?

Yes I do.

Do I often go to parties that require dressing up like that?

Not at all.

Do I have plenty of beautiful pajamas?

No, I don't.

So I guess it's no surprise that my kids don't really opt for a glamorous lifestyle either...

Does Rosa have plenty of glorious outfits?

Yes she does.

Does Rosa like wearing those clothes?

Not really.

Does Rosa like wearing clothes at all?

Well in fact not, just a onesie is more than enough if you ask her...

Yeah, it's kind of a bummer for me that Rosa isn't interested at all in wearing all those beautiful clothes that I stubbornly keep buying her, like this wonderful Dominique Ver Eecke dress that I still have to find us a glamorous opportunity for. Of course her mom in pajamas isn't such a great example to convince her that dressing up is lots of fun ;). So we're in desperate need of some more glamour here, and I guess I have to get started with myself (in order not to become the mom who spends fortunes on clothes for her kids and completely forgets about herself... Oh guess what, that's me already! ;))

Wat een leuk verhaal Nina, zooo grappig zoals je jezelf, je household and the lack of glamour beschrijft. You know, it's just you and your beautiful family. Je haar is in elk geval weer helemaal 'in shape'. Komt goed! liefs xx
