During this last trip, the crew was talking about the difference between how we perceive people judging by their actions at work and how they probably really are at home.
For example, they said that they view me as a feminine, girly-girl who takes pride in my appearance. They believe that my house is always organized and immaculate without a thing out of place.
If only they knew that I rarely wear make-up during the week and the most that I primp is to pull my hair back into a pony tail. I’m the Mommy who’s always sitting on the sidewalk waiting for Girlie Girl after school while the other Moms stand on the side. And although I prefer a clean house, it’s not always on my to-do list.
So what about you? Do your co-workers/friends see you for who you really are?

You mean you’re not the perfect mom? I don’t believe it.
I think the people at my work wonder what I even look like anymore, since they’re living in St. Louis, and I’m here at home in Washington. Of course, then again, some people didn’t even know that I moved. LOL
But most of the people I work with have seen my place, because I did a lot of BBQ’s there, so there’s no mystery to them.
