Note to self: get dressed for the day

by Katie on April 11, 2013

We have been abundantly blessed to have friends and family drop by bearing gifts to welcome Leyton since her arrival. Unfortunately, we have not done very well at blessing these kind-hearted folks back during their visits with our appearances or hospitality. The most recent incident was by far the worst…and most humiliating.

A local family who were big-time supporters of Brandon’s teaching days and current show steer customers of ours delivered a gift this past Friday morning.

I’ve done a pretty decent job of getting myself dressed and presentable each morning, either before Leyton’s 7am wake-up time or immediately after. But this particular morning was the morning I was still suffering through the severe cold symptoms Brandon passed along and fighting off a mild fever. So, even despite my good sleep the night before, I was looking less than stellar for sure. And since I wasn’t feeling the best, I was still wearing pajamas when the matriarch of this family stopped by our home. At 10am. If that wasn’t embarrassing enough, to top off the whole thing, Thursday night was the one night all week I decided to sleep in one of Brandon’s extra large faded tshirts, and had just added sweatpants to retrieve Leyton at 7am. Pretty picture, let me tell you.

Anyway, when there was a knock on the door at 10am, I kind of just assumed it was maybe one of our employees Brandon had sent over or something. I wasn’t really expecting company. So, I just opened the door rather than grabbing actual clothes first.

And there stood a perfectly well-put-together woman holding a gift back.

Her first words upon me opening the door?

“Aww, rough night?” asked very sympathetically.

Since I felt bad wrongly blaming it on my poor baby (who had actually slept from 12:30 to 7 that night), I had to deny that explanation for my appearance. I did mention the cold, but she quickly left the gift and made her departure.

And I shut the door and immediately found some actual clothes for the day.
