Its Suit Day

Wake up
put on suit for tour day
wake up baby
cuddle baby and coo
aww cute little baby
notice large snot stain smeared across suit
grab baby wipe scrub suit
Give the kids dry cereal to protect suit
Go to work
feed school baby bottle
awww cute little baby
ponder having more kids
feel the warmth of puke flowing down top
grab baby wipe clean off puke
reconsider having more kids
go to office
print up brochure
glow with workers pride
clear paper jam
glow with a little less pride
clear another paper jam
cut fingers again
feel pride glow fades
cut finger again
wonder how long it would take to get new job
grab baby wipe
clean blood off suit
ignore coffee, children, powdered donuts anything that can hurt suit
sit perfectly still doing nothing so as not to disturb suit
be asked why you are doing nothing while at work
explain suit
ignore stares
Its suit day dammit!

I can't imagine owning a suit, much less wearing one. My step-mother tried to give me something wool and dry clean only for Christmas. I very politely declined and explained to her that kids and dry clean just do not mix!

Ali said...

I;m sure you looked lovely. I bet you could hardly notice the snot, puke and blood.

Valarie Lea said...

Ummm are we having a bad day????

Do we still have the Chicken Pox on top of the suit issue??

Ren said...

LOL!!! Your poor suit. At least it's loved! Good luck keeping it clean.

Kristin H. said...

Whaaaa? Why are you at work? Don't you have chicken pox??

Erin, Nick and Merrick said...

I second the "Why at work with the pox" comment?!
Get back into bed!

That must be a suit of teflon if you can just wipe off snot, spit up and blood. I want one.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

I used to hate getting to the end of the day and THEN seeing the snot/spit up/ baby food smeared on my shoulder.
Yuck.
Thanks for the memories.

Erin said...

I can relate to this today...I put on my favorite shirt this morning, and two minutes later my son smeared a blueberry on the front of it. Knowing that blueberry stains (really, really badly) I immediately put Spray N Wash on it and threw it in the washing machine.

Bodily fluids: the perfect accessories to any outfit.

Too frickin funny.

Not Your Aunt Bea said...

Too funny! Also happens on important-interview day or fancy-date night.

Heather said...

There is an unspoken rule in motherdom (is that a word?) The minute you put on something nice, your child will come down with a raging case of stomach flu.

Hope you survived suit day!

Marilyn said...

Come to think of it, I bought a 5 or 6 suits 2-3 years ago when I thought I'd try being someone's employee again after owning my own business for 20 years... I quit after 8 hours... but I still have the suits!

The Mrs. said...

wow a suit. I dont think I even have a skirt anymore around here. Do you have to shave to wear a suit? I'm no longer jealous if you do.

Annie said...

Suit day = suck day.

But did you get this question: "Are you getting a new job?" or "Do you have an interview today?"

I hate those questions. Dumbass, if I did, do you think I'd be dumb enough to wear the suit to work and raise suspicion?

adrienne said...

But I'll bet you looked amazing anyway.

momcat said...

No suits or stocking for me. I keep is simple and smart casual for work. Do you keep the baby wipes in your handbag? Doesn't the baby need them?

Scintilla said...

So it was Acne and not Pox !

This post explains why I've been wearing jeans for the past twenty years...

April said...

honeywine said...

Imagine working somewhere where every day was suit day? Scary, but awesome.
