Back to School Already??

Hello my Dear Friend... So happy to see you here!  Summer is coming to a close and I just found this post that has a few reminders and some FABulous tips on transitioning from the lazy days of summer to the structured days of school.  

I'm off to the stores to buy some back to school basics... basic red, basic pink, basic mauve... Yes I'm talking about lipsticks!  Enjoy the read Darling...

The Dos & Don'ts of the Back To School Mommy

Hello my Darling Friend... I’m always so delighted when you stop by!  Let me fill your cup with a fresh blend of, ‘Mommys Who Should Freshen Up on their Back to School Manners!’
My oh my, can you believe how fast the summer season went by?  Next thing you know, there’ll be ghosts and goblins running through the neighborhood and then the shopping season begins... Oh, how I just adore the shopping season... colorful new lipsticks, shiny new lipsticks, bright new lipsticks... huh?  OH, I mean, of course Darling, shopping for others is what I meant... **ahem** 
See how I get?  Mention the word ‘lipstick’ and I fall apart at the seams and can’t control my compulsive behavior to stay on topic!  Now where were we?  Oh yes... the end of summer, back to school and all that goes with... including outrageous Mommy manners!  Sounds like it’s time for more Mommy Lessons.  Do I have a Dos & Don’ts list for back to school behavior?  You betcha... let’s get started...
DO greet other Mommys when bringing your kids to school or extra curricular activities with a friendly ‘hello’ regardless if you know them or not.  It’s polite.  They don’t need to be your BFF or meet you for weekly pedi appointments, but you will see these same Mommys throughout the year and having a friendly way about you sets a wonderful example for your own children and for others to follow suit.
If you’re not new to the school, welcome those that are new... DON’T make new Mommys feel unwelcome by saying such nonsense as, “Oh, I didn’t know I would see you here.  They must have redistricted your neighborhood.”  Catty, catty... tssk, tssk!
DO follow the rules when dropping your kids off at school or other outside activities.  Usually there are crossing guards to help guide you and I knowthere are many signs and painted arrows that direct you to your destination.
DON’T drive to the front of the line when it’s not your turn and then proceed to block all traffic and endanger those kids that are trying to cross safely but now your entire vehicle has dominated the driveway.  tssk, tssk, tssk  I’m sure that car will have a fabulous new ‘key’ design on their door by the time the school year is over.
DO wear appropriate Mommy clothing that doesn’t distract others when you bend over to kiss your child goodbye.  Let’s save that look for a hot date night with the Hubby instead... sound good?
DON’T judge other Mommys’ AM attire as not everyone is a morning person and can look like they walked off the pages of a Nordstrom’s catalogue.  Even moi has morning challenges, though you would never know it of course!  Coffee stains down the front of a blouse, a forgotten pajama bottom as trousers or mismatched shoes can be quite endearing and remind us all that we’re only human and we do make mistakes.  It's okay... even if our shirt is inside out.
Well Darling, the pot is empty and I must get myself organized for the school year... I’ll start with buying a few new lipsticks to add to my morning routine, oooh, some new powder too.  Until next time my Dear Friend... Ta Ta!

Meee?? I Can TOO Focus!

Why Hellooo my Darling Friend... I’m absolutely delighted that you stopped by!  I have been immensely busy over the past few weeks, and I’m thrilled to share with you some of my many FABulous adventures.  Make yourself comfy and let me fill your cup...

Being the social maven that I am, my calendar is ever so full and my lipstick collection has been put to good use, hmmm... time for a new tube of color... or 2, possibly 3 as you know the Fall Collection is calling my name, “Caffe!  Ohhhh Caffe!”

                                     *Insert dreamlike music here*


Snap out of it Caffe!  Huh?  Were you talking to me?  But, but... the lipsticks were calling my name!  Didn’t you hear them??  And the beautiful angels playing the harp?  No?  Hmmph, now where were we?  Oh yes, buying lipsticks... now is the time to get to the cosmetic counters as ALL the latest colors are in!  How excit... why do you have those little furrow thingys between your eyes?  Did I say something wrong?  It’s not about lipsticks?  Oooops...

But it could be about lipsticks!  Maybe my FABulous adventures were all in the lipstick aisle and I dreamed about shimmers and shines, long wearing brilliant colors to match my every need of every day for the rest of my compulsive desire for a pretty pucker!  Phew, I think I need to touch up my lipstick after that one...

You know Darling, after all this talk about lipstick... I... I... I have to go now!  But Caffe!  You didn’t even talk about what you did.  You know, your adventures!  Adventures?  Oh, I... well, I just got so worked up with the lipstick fantasy that any other adventure just seems so, well, dull!  I hope you understand my Dear... I’ll be back another time, we’ll chat then... let yourself out and please don’t forget to vote before you leave by clicking on the little Circle of Moms button over there ---> in the side bar... 8 more days you know, and the race between me and my Darling Friend Jenn has been quite exhilarating!

Until next time my Dear Dear Friend... Ta Ta!

But What's Wrong With Buying A Push-Up Bra For A 9 Year Old?!

Well Hello my Darling Friend... so glad you’re here as I need to relieve some tension and chatting with you will make me feel oh so much better.  I’ve been going bonkers lately, each and every time I step into the young girls section of the store I’m in... and I need to vent and scream and kick up my heels... but first... let me fill your cup...
Okay, now... so the last time we spoke about fashion my Dear, we chatted about shorts for girls and how short is too short for a young girl?  I know, I know, it’s the parents’ responsibility to purchase or to not purchase and the freedom of blah, blah, blah... hmmph, makes my lipstick smudge!
So I got a bit out of hand with my thoughts about short shorts on very little girls... I bought a new lipstick, got over it and felt much better... and then, a few days later I went to the girls’ undie section in Target.  I never really paid attention to this section except when I needed a 6 pack of panties or a package of socks... 
I was looking for camis or tanks for Littlest to wear for sleeping, you know, it’s summer time and I thought something cool and comfortable to wear for bed would be a good thing for this time of the year.  When I got to the girls underwear section... I... about... fainted!  
OH MY GAWD!!  Are you fricken kidding me???  Breathe Caffe, breathe...  

I completely understand the adjustments in uhhh... well... you know!  A young girl’s body goes through many transformations and one of the changes is a new piece of underwear that fits around the chest area... A bra.  In the very beginning, a camisole or a half tank, an undershirt... these are sufficient coverage for the very young and it also opens dialogue with your daughter about what to expect in the near future.  
See the picture up above?  Uh huh, looks like the women's bra section in the store doesn’t it?  Take a closer look...  It’s the girls’ section!! 

There were padded, molded, sculpted, wired, wireless and demi bras... for a 9 year old??  How much sculpting can you do with a young girl’s chest?  Nope!  I don’t even want to think about it as thinking about it will make the powder on my nose crust up!  What next?  Garter belts and crotchless panties?? 
Who thinks this is a good idea?  *Ahem...Hanes*  And why are they making undergarments that suggest sexuality at such a young age?  Because a push-up demi is not exactly something a young girl would wear to the neighborhood park... is it?  Unless they are wearing their low cut T-shirt trying to attract all the boys playing trucks in the sand!  
Am I soooo old fashioned in my ways of reasoning when it comes to push-up bras for the very young?  What do you think Darling?
Hmmmph... the pot is empty and my lipstick is smeared all over my cup!  I think I’ll go buy a dozen new lipsticks to soothe my frazzled nerves... that should do the trick, I’m feeling much better already just thinking about it!  I’ll just stay in the lipstick aisle and not look anywhere else for at least several more years and I’ll also pretend that my Littlest will stay little forever... I don’t think I’ll be breaking my lipstick habit ways anytime soon... Until next time my Dear Friend, stay lovely... Ta Ta!

Oooh, Vote Reminder Darling... Please Vote... HERE  Thank you sooooo much my Dear Friend!  xoxo
