Trying to get my "sexy" back! (MOM remembering her women side)

I had a little bit of a "down day" yesterday so I decide this morning I was going to do my hair, put on make-up and put on a dress, even though I didn't really have anything to do today. I really think deciding to do this changed my mood (for the better), and I ended up having positive things happen. I had a query (for my writing) accepted, had a TimHorton's gift card, that I won, arrive in the mail today, and enjoyed a nice muffin with Mateo, plus it was a sunny day.
Although in my attempt to "look good" today to "feel good", my sexy attempts were a little bit of a miss. I decided if I was really going to look good, I was going to go all out, which meant putting on the sexy undergarments too, not my comfortable left over from my pregnancy undergarments (can't believe I am admitting this). Please don't get me wrong I was still appropriately dressed for my age and as a mother, as it wasn't short or revealing (well so I thought).
While pushing a stroller, and of course trying to carry a diaper bag and my coffee (essential), you don't think about not having enough hands free to deal with the "unexpected" wardrobe malfunctions.  In a gust of wind where I could not hold down my dress, I let everyone know I was bringing the sexy back into my mommy look, something I wasn't planning on sharing. If you don't understand what I am saying, well I may of been flashing my Hanky Panky (actual name of undergarments) to the public.
All and all I think I am really going to focus on doing little things, from now on , for myself, but maybe with a slight modification to avoid embarrassment. Can any other mothers relate with attempts to do things, in order to remember you still got it?
