Kids: Too Old to See Me Naked? Heck NO!

_____________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________     A couple of days ago I came across a post in a mommy group that has been on my mind ever since, it was a simple question about what age little boys should stop ‘seeing’ their mothers naked. Got me thinking, not because the question was relevant- because to me it really isn’t, but because I cannot believe that in this day and age we are actually harping on issues like this.

How can a girl, let alone a busy mama of 2 hate these wonderfully spacious pants anyhow?

No more heat induced sticky legs, fashionably chic and of course very loose fitting for that comfortable feel while running errands with the little ones. In theory these are a god-send for mothers everywhere, but in reality for short…

My children are 2 years apart and up until this point, we have been able to agree on most things….that was until my oldest (9) became a raging Mr Bossy Pants and my youngest (7) decided that whining all day makes for melody that would make anyone cringe. Most mornings are spent arguing over what to wear, how to wear it, whether or not breakfast is good enough to eat, whining and screaming – all…
