I am about to bring up a subject that will make me pretty unpopular, but I can’t help it. Please, moms, pretty please ... do not wear Hello Kitty pajamas to school dropoff this year. It’s not cute ... not even on your little girl (unless it’s pajama day, then it’s adorable).
Why do you avoid getting dressed like you avoid the scale after a vacation week of bingeing on candy and carbs? Why? It’s not that big of a deal. (A quick seven-pound gain is scary ... been there.) Let me tell you something: It takes the same amount of effort to slip on a pair of leggings, a nice top, and boots as it does to put on sweatpants, a hoodie, and sneakers. Really, it does. Oh, except the boots zip and the sneakers tie, so I will save you precious time. And you will look damn good at drop-off.
