Getting out of the house for my hour-long commute in the morning is never easy. With a nursing infant, a toddler who refuses pants, a second-grader fighting her own timeline, and husband who sleeps like he's locked in a K-hole, getting dressed and out of the door by 7:15 a.m. is easily the most stressful part of my day. Luckily, I work in a very casual office and typically wear jeans and a sweater, sometimes even a hoodie.
But today, I had to give a major presentation to the entire company. I was already tense. And, considering that I'm still 10 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight, finding something to wear was a considerable challenge. I woke up half an hour early, showered, and dressed in the one and only thing that fits me.
