I took these pics for a story one of the Babble bloggers is doing about no make-up vs. make up. I don't know when the post is going up, but I thought I'd show you my pics because starting tomorrow, I'll be wearing make-up again. For the past couple of months, when I'm picking the kids up from school and working from home,
I'm heading back to the office at New York Family to start my internship in the editorial side of the magazine. I'll be back to reading books on the subway as I commute. Skipping lunch (it's good for me--I've been finishing off way too many tubs of Pillsbury frosting lately). Walking a few miles in heals. Most of all writing!
I hope I'm nice to my kids in the morning. Especially when we are running late and Oscar's shoe goes missing. Every time. Or later when Owen refuses to wear his hat and starts dragging it on the sidewalk. And then dangles it over a city trash can and waits for me to react. Not that that has ever happened.
Tomorrow morning, I want my kids to see that I'm working on my dream. I want the message to be really clear: That I'm happy and grateful and excited about this opportunity. I want them to see that this is going to do great things for me and the family. Otherwise, if I'm all grumpy and frustrated as I help them find their shoes, they might not know. And that could be really confusing to them. I'll see how I do. Who knows what the morning will bring?
