I often wish I had a uniform. I don't really like thinking about what I'm going to wear every day. Does it match? Is it comfy? Is it weather appropriate? Is it clean? And can I actually find it? Too many questions for early in the morning. Multiplied by 2 because Erin hasn't figured out how to dress herself yet and Rory just refuses to (I'm sure Abby was dressing herself by 3!)
And being a school mum means I actually have to leave the house twice a day. So I need to look semi-presentable and wear clothes I'm not afraid to be seen in.
But this week it dawned on me I think I actually do have a school uniform. My 'schooliform' (as Lola says) consists of comfy skirts (often one of these), comfy shoes and some sort of top I can breastfeed in. Nothing new (cause we're not buying new clothes this year only op-shop and handmade), just stuff I've had in my wardrobe for years. And nothing that looks like what everyone else is wearing (or I try not to anyway).
I wish I could wear dresses and tunics but I've gotta feed that baby on a regular basis and I'd prefer not to have to get undressed each time I do it. And I would looooove to just chuck on my jeans but I only have one pair of jeans and they are my skinny jeans. The ones I bought just after I had Rory when I was really skinny (the upside of PND). They fit now but when I wear them I can't breath. And I kinda need to breath. And bend over to wipe bottoms. And crouch down to pick up babies and mess. So jeans are out.
Which leaves me with a very limited wardrobe. But at least I don't have to think too much about what I'm going to wear every day. What shall I wear? Oh, let's go for 'same again or a variation thereof' shall we?
