Dirty Grubby Clothes

Have you ever noticed how if your a mom (especially a mom with young children) your clothes are always dirty five minutes after you put them on. I put them on in the morning and they aren't stained or covered with food or any other gross things that seem to appear. But within minutes my shoulders are covered in items of unknown origins. Not to mention all the dirt stains on my pants from picking them up after they have been playing in the mud. I remember a not to distant time ago that I could actually wear a white top and at the end of the day still have it look white. Now I'm lucky if it will be completely white after I wash the top. It's gotten to wear I wear a lot of dark colors in hopes of hiding those spots that always show up. But I must admit it, I am tired of dark clothes. I want to wear light colors again and not have to spend a fortune washing and cleaning them. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if it only happens every now and then but for me it happens every day. I guess I am going to have to invest and buy stock in a company once they figure out what to do about all these stains. In the meantime I can only remember how once when I only had one child and he was about four, I wore light clothes on a regular basis. So for me that means I only have around three more years until I can do it again. Sigh, I hope I can wait that long.

I have given in to the knowledge that I will be doing a lot of washing, and wear light colors anyway. I too got tired of the dark colors (brown and black all the time) and have embraced more color. I'll not mention any stains when I see them if you dare to wear your light colors. :)
