Here I am, 3 days after Christmas and basking in the warmth of my favorite present - CLOTHES.
Yes, clothes. As a kid, I hated getting clothes for Christmas. But now I love it.
I've stayed at home with the kids for the last 9 years. What this means is that I put myself last. Always have. I don't even think about buying clothes for me. As a matter of fact, I don't even walk through the womens clothing deparment. I just head for the kids clothes when we need something. So the only time I get new clothes is from Christmas and birthday.
That's why I enjoy these clothes so much. It's the little things, like my new jeans and soft cotton shirts, that make me feel like a "girl" again and not so much like a frumpy Mom.
