Tomorrow night, I am attending a formal dinner – 15th Anniversary for my husbands work. I have had to find something formal for the occasion.
I want to look like a “gorgeous” mother, one that still looks her best EVEN though she has SEVEN children.
Can some of you with large families relate to what I am saying here?
Whenever, I attend (or all of the family) a work related function. I am made a spectacle of “this is HUSBANDS Name wife, would you believe she has SEVEN children”. This happens all the time. Then you get the usual questions; are you having any more, you must have your hands full etc etc…(you know the drill).
If you have a lot of children, you need to show the world that you are confident and able to handle anything that gets thrown at you (meaning rude comments by strangers).
If you look clean, tidy, and even elegant it does make a difference. Lets be honest, when you see a woman trudging down the street with 5 or more grotty looking kids (no shoes, dirty clothes, un-brushed hair), and she is wearing ugh boots, ripped jeans and a ‘fag’ in her fingers, no make-up and matted hair, what are your first thoughts?
