Remember how, before having kids, you would wonder to yourself upon seeing a frazzled/screaming/disheveled/otherwise-batshit-crazy mom chasing her kids around the store/park/Starbucks in her trusty athleisure uniform and be all, “Ugh, that will NEVER be me.”
Let me be the first to tell you that the universe is just crouching in wait, eager to prove you wrong in the most enthusiastic way possible once you do in fact procreate, and it may look just like this:
Your son will projectile vomit all over the floor and toilet during your other child’s gymnastics lesson (forcing him to eat chili will have been your first mistake), and you will spend the next twenty minutes quite literally on your hands and knees, bleach-wiping an entire ten-square-foot public bathroom in your trusty Stretchy Pants, with your put-together silk-shirts-and-tailored-blazers look from your Working Days a fond but verrrry distant memory.
And that’s, my friends, when you will be so grateful for your very stretchy, very machine wash friendly uniform of athleisure that you seem to don, oh, 98% of your waking hours.
So just trust me and get all the moms (and hell–non-mothers, too!) some adorable athleisure for the holidays, so she can fool herself into thinking she has retained a shred of dignity from her past life.
(The bleach wipes are on them.)
