Will you just look at at my beautiful biggest girl holding my scrumptious littlest girl?
Oi! Be still my heart.
Also, do you see Madame Chubliscious Pants' fancy hair sprout on the top of her head? So grownupish!
So my girls take this ballet/tap class through our local homeschool partnership on Wednesday mornings. This Wednesday, yesterday, they had a field trip scheduled so they could dance at the actual studio rather than in the gym of the re-purposed elementary school where they usually have their lessons.

Somehow I managed to get all five kids and myself properly dressed and ready to go by 8:30 a.m. (in homeschooler time, that's, like 3 o'clock in the morning, okay?) and I was feeling pretty stinking proud of myself.
Untiiiiiiiiiiiiil-----junior potty inspector Cecilia insisted that she needed to go potty. See, the potty is in that room at the other end of the studio. And you can't wear your shoes on the studio floor, oh no you cannot.
"So what? What's the big deal? Just take off your shoes, dweej..."
You guys. When I plunged my hands into my drawer of tangled unmentionables that morning and managed to rescue not one but two whole socks, I did not know that anyone was going to ever see what was hiding underneath my awesometastical boots. High school in the nineties strikes again!
So there I was, holding a 4 month old baby whilst wrangling a 2 year old and a 5 year old, shuffling across the dance studio in two distinctly different socks. #facepalm
On a related note, because it has to do with me and apparel, but simultaneously on a totally unrelated note because it's completely unrelated, here is an outfit I wore on Tuesday that is completely thrifted. And I share this because 1) it is real and 2) when you want to think about actually getting dressed on a regular basis but you don't have the budget of a Russian duchess, you might need to be assured that clothing doesn't have to cost 1 Berkin Bag x 7.
Anyway, Mary at With My Sisters (shout out to my Stubie peeps!) had this idea to have people share totally thrifted outfits, sans brand names, so we can encourage each other to be good stewards of our funds so we can still do important things like give to charity and adopt orphans and...you know....eat. So I'm doing it!
