What I Wore Sunday

15 April 2013



1. topless prop
2. slit eyes, empty pockets, can't lose


Meg sent me Mindy Kaling's book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), (LOVE love love love it) and in one of the chapters she talks about how one of her former bosses is always talking about how stressed out she is ...

A note about me: I do not think stress is a legitimate topic of conversation, in public anyway. No one ever wants to hear how stressed out anyone else is, because most of the time EVERYONE IS STRESSED OUT. Going on and on in detail about how stressed how I am isn't conversation. It'll never lead anywhere. No one is going to say, "Wow, Mindy, you really have it ESPECIALLY bad. I have heard some stories of stress but this just TAKES THE CAKE."

(hopefully she never reads this blog if she feels the same way about whiny moms because ....... )

Anyway, her feelings on stress talk mirror the way I feel when people say they are tired. I'm fairly certain that 98% of the time most parents/people with jobs/the entire world are all really tired so I'm not going to tell you how tired I was yesterday after sleeping zero minutes when Simon was at work on Saturday night. I just don't want you to think I always look high on illegal contraband. The angels sang a song and he was able to sleep for three hours at work so he took the big kids to the park so I could nap but Theo just chuckled and scoffed at that little plan. However, I did climb into our King Double bed around 8:23 last night so my lipz are zipped in the tired department until Simon is on call again next week.

You'll be thrilled to know we hit up our favorite hospital Mass yesterday where the kids acted like caged chimpanzees and there was a priest (in vestments) sitting next to us who didn't add to my stress (just for you, Mindy!) level at all. After Mass the visiting priest announced he was staying in the hospital receiving cancer treatments so that made me feel even better because he's probably not feeling ill at all.

Here's what the older kids wore because you already saw what Theo was swaddled in in the photo above ...


stolen from here and here.

Julia and Dora had matching footwear (c/o my super stylish grandma) and Sebastian threw about 99 tantrums directly after I took that photo.

the stuffs:
shirt: Forever XXI
pants: Old Navy (I want a pair in every color which of COURSE they have)
shoes: Target

kids Mass behavior:
Julia: C- (wanted me to put Theo down in the pew so she could be held because as usual, she 'not wike him')
Bash: F you know that when Simon leans over in between wrestling matches and tells me, "he gets an F!!!" before Mass is even over that his behavior was ..... BAD.
Theo: A- but if he started sleeping through Mass again like a docile little newborn I wouldn't complain.


Linking up with FLAP ... hopefully you were on the ball and did the same yesterday.

  1. We made it the gospel before the toddler announced he pooped. We thought he was kidding. It took DH until the Lord's Prayer to clean him up.

  2. Sebastian looks so much older in that picture! And J and Dora with the matching shoes, ohhhh my gosh I love it.

    I read Mindy's book too and was giggling aloud for most of it. The part about stress is so great.

  3. WHEN did Theo get that chunky? Scrumptious!

    Also, would you like to know the last time my thighs didn't touch while standing like you? 9th grade. Maybe this "exercise" thing that you do isn't all hype...

    And, while I'm probably guilty of talking about how tired I am, I HATE it when that's all other people talk about. My middle school students always complain about how tired they are and I'm like, "I'm sorry, how many children are you taking care of all night long? That would be ZERO, so never complain to me about being tired again!!!"

    Is Sebastian channelling baby model? SO cute.

    Also, John Paul and Cecilia have decided that you guys are like a storybook family, and everyone in our family has been assigned a Patton family character. The choices are obvious - I'm you, Andrew's Simon, John Paul is Sebastian, Cecilia is Julia, Elizabeth is Theo and since Mary Claire doesn't get a Patton, John Paul has named your next child Esther. Hope that's cool with you, because I'm pretty sure it's binding.

    1. That is the greatest thing I have read all day haha!

      Also, do they make Baby J Crew clothes? Pretty sure Sebastian would be hired.

  4. I listened to the audiobook on our drive to Florida. So funny to hear her tone of voice while she read it!

  7. Is that shirt a recent F21 find? Because I LOVE it. This outfit is awesome.

    Also, your kids are total fashion plates.

  8. Such cute pants and wedges! Theo's chunky arms & cheeks are too cute to handle. And Sebastian could have fooled me w/ that photo- he looks like an angelic little stud. :)

  9. Love the green pants. They look great on you so I think you really should get one in every color.

    And I totally adore Julia's outfit. Would wear it myself if they made it in a size much, much bigger.

  10. Since lately all I am is either (a) stressed, (b) tired, or (c) in pain, I have decided it is best to limit my blog posts in general. I'm sure everyone is much happier because of my decision.

  14. Oh. My. Goodness. Chubby Theo + Bash with his hands in his pocket like a grown person, SO CUTE. Also, every time I think of Julia trying to get the "snake" to come & see her, I chuckle.

  15. Those pants are awesome, Grace! They look so good on you. And Feo, what a little chubber! So precious.

  16. I read that book too and had no idea that Mindy was so wise. And now that I think about it, Jordan's new haircut looks vaguely similar to Mindy's toddler bowl cut.

    I really should stop talking about how tired I am, but mostly I only do it to Sean so does that count? I'm not gonna count it. Husbands don't count.

  17. I love Mindy's book! Just as funny as I expected it to be. I enjoyed it more than I did Tina Fey's, though I liked hers too. Just not as much laugh-out-loud stuff, and there's nothing I love more than reading something alone and laughing like an idiot. :)

  18. Just assume that Basher ALWAYS gets an "F" for Mass behavior until he's about 4. Then, any rare good behavior will look positively stellar by comparison. With boy, speaking from VAST experience, it's helpful to set your expectaion bar really, really low........! Persevere, my friend!

  19. Oh, and LOVE those green pants!

  20. That is by far the CUTEST picture of Sebastian! How handsome! I love the green pants...Old Navy you say? I looked at your Instagram pics and love the wall pic of Theo. Jealous of your spring weather, we're covered in snow....again.

  21. I cannot get over how gorgeous your kids are! Theo's chunkiness!! Remember when he was skinny? Me neither. And I know Bash lived up to his nickname, but look at him posing! And why are all 3 of them so freakin' stylish? It's almost enough to thaw my ice-cold ovaries.

    Also, love that book. Love Mindy Project too. Mindy Kaling is hilarious.

  22. haha, love this post. So glad you like the book!!

  23. such a milf! love those pants. I have some Target maternity capris in a similar color and they are my favorite. Oh and can't comment without mentioning how freaking adorable Theo's rolls are!
