Can You Spot The Mom In This Picture?

2 different shoes

Four and a half hours people… that’s how long I rocked that look before anyone noticed.

This past Saturday I was herding my brother and friends out of my house, putting the finishing touches on a little girl’s apron for the birthday party we were rushing to and making sure that my kids were dressed and that we had the diapers, wipes, car keys and oh yes.. husband.

I stuck my feet under the table, slipped on my shoes and walked out the door, I had on a long sundress so I guess it wasn’t that noticeable.  Until FOUR AND A HALF hours later when I put my feet up at a friend’s house and their 17 year old niece said:  “Rachel, why are you wearing two different shoes”

Then, I laughed until my sides hurt and told her: “When you’re a mom, you’ll understand”

    1. Hey Greis! Thanks 😉 The one of the left, the camo ones are Yellow Box. I got them at my local “girly bling” boutique. I LOVE them!

  1. Oh, that is so like me!! In the fall and spring, there are days when I’ll wear my slippers out because I completely forgot to change into my shoes! It really and truly is a Mom thing!

  2. Love this! Done it myself! In fact, I did not notice any problem until I actually read the words. Distracted by the pretty toes. 🙂

  3. Oh, Yea i see….just blame it on your little brother and his 2 lazy annoying friends. It was all our fault haha. It was fun Rach thanks for having us this weekend and sorry you had to wear 2 different shoes. BTW you need to go see Julie and Julia. It was pretty good and reminded me of you.

    1. Um yah.. of course 😉 LOL. I wasn’t blaming you, exactly.. just adding y’all to the formula that caused me to rock the mis-matched flops for the evening 😉
      Glad y’all came.. it was a blast!

  4. I can totally understand this happening, but YOU didn’t notice? They look like they’re different thicknesses in the sole! That’s hilarious! =)

  5. Yesterday I locked the front door, got the kids buckled in, started the car and then noticed I was wearing my husband’s flip flops. I had slipped them on earlier to take out some trash and forgot I was wearing those giant flipper like things until it was almost too late!

  8. That is too funny….but, as least they are cute.

    Total sidenote..I did bacon in my oven..aren’t you proud of me…but it also led me to discover I’m pretty sure my oven is broken…it took 30 minutes to cook it at the right temperature (or what my oven said was the right temperature!)

    The funniest part of all is that I didn’t even NOTICE that you had two different flip flops on until I read your post. 😉
