As a working mom of two toddlers, I can tell you most days I am running late due to unforeseen falls, kissing boo boo's, wet hair, spilled milk (yes, for real) or the dog deciding to urinate somewhere other than our backyard. Not every day is tricky but most require McGuyver-like skill. It really is a balancing act.
Looking polished is a non-negotiable for me. I do not wear yoga pants out of the house unless I am going to a yoga class. More than likely you will see me in 4" heels and almost never with naked lips. It's just my thing. It should also be noted that I consume about five cups of coffee everyday but who's counting?
