After months of careful planning Super Busy Mom and Super Busy Dad finally have a date night on the calendar. The evening is a well deserved break for just the two of them and Super Busy Mom plans to look her very super sexy best as these date nights only happen when a miracle meets a full moon.
Her first instinct is to find the perfect pair of stain resistant dark wash jeans, because, honestly she will be parenting up until the last-minute of the DATE NIGHT. Her second is to check her drawer for a jazzy eyeshadow because tonight she is finally not just mommy, but the girl Super Busy Dad met in the mall parking lot 15 years ago while sipping a hot coffee from the deli that was not filled with Caramel Creamy Banana Foo-Foo but just plain old milk and one sugar packet.
Super Busy Mom cannot find the perfect eyeshadow for Miracle Full Moon Date so she dashes to the local drugstore and grabs anything she can find that might just slice of 10 years of aging and add a dewy youthful complexion.
And that my Rockin’ Busy Moms is how make-up clutter is created.
