Don’t Be Basic

A friend of mine saw this t-shirt and immediately thought of me because I’ve joked about being basic.

I know that I am the essence of basic. I wear Lulu to the gym (though honestly, I like Lucy better). I like lattes. I’m a suburban mom, driving a minivan, doing basic things.

But truly, when is the life of any mom basic? Yep, we wipe butts, and noses, and countertops, and more. We tie little shoes, and untie knots in our little ones’ hair. We drive minivans and SUVs in our carpools, and spend hours at their activities.

But there’s magic in every day of it. There’s laughter, there are snuggles for days, and there is so much reward.

My kids have taught me to appreciate the little accomplishments, to stop and smell the roses, and that a good hug fixes many problems. They make me better, and do better.

So I’ll take basic! I’m going to wear this shirt proudly, and ironically. Because basic is where it’s at.

  1. Love this shirt! And you are so right – no one’s life, especially a mother is really basic! There are so many little magical moments and special things – honestly I need the basic to make my life feel more established and collected!

  2. I’ve never understood the whole anti-basic thing, who cares if we do or enjoy popular things? They’re popular for a reason and if we happen to like them, so be it! Too bad you didn’t have a latte as a prop to add to the irony in this shoot. P.S. – LOVING the mixture of textures in those Converse!
