So nice, I wore it twice…

Mod/Day 4

No, this isn’t the same post two days in a row.  I’ve just worn the exact same outfit two days in a row.  I haven’t made it to the mall to get the tights I need, a pair of pants and one more pair of shoes.  Three basic items that would help me create many outfits that are just dying to be worn and sitting in my closet.

But for a mom, a simple errand is never just a simple errand.  Sure, it sounds like it on the surface – oh, I just have to get a memory card for my camera or drop off a soccer registration form or just buy some damn conditioner

However, if you’re sitting in your car in front of a store with one child sound asleep, or you’ve somehow made it into the store but all your kids are melting down or worse, you can’t find what you’re looking for and now your kids are so bored they’re wrestling in the aisles, then it’s not a simple errand.  The things you need might as well be at the bottom of the ocean.  I’ve always had this fantasy there’s a drive-thru just for moms and it carries everything you need…

Mom:  Hi, I’d like four D batteries, a package of noodles, some yarn for doll hair that I can’t find anywhere that matches my daughter’s doll, an oil change, dinner for tonight and a pedicure.

Drive thru person:  No problem, Ma’am.  While I’m getting the rest of your things, please pick a polish color and stick your legs through the car window…

But until that wonderful store becomes a reality, a simple trip to the mall is never so simple and the same outfit might just have to be worn two days in a row…

And speaking of stores, look how Mod-inspired Louis Vitton is this spring!

Although, Louis Vitton is one store that if I was with my kids, we’d be safer staying in the car…
