It's all you can do to get the children to school with their hair and teeth brushed. But no.... The school run has become the place to look stylish and be judged.
Do you think this is a result of ‘celebrity culture’ again?
Not only have we all got to be perfectly styled, we have to look chic but casual. We see them in magazines dropping off their little ones and there is not a baby stain in sight!
The interesting thing about school-gate/bus style is that; like hockey or netball, it is terrifically competitive. Of course there are mum’s who are not bothered – in true Britney Spears style, but it’s what women do. We size up, we compare and as with any place where women meet, there’s a little bit of one-up-woman-ship going on.
You see the rushed-off-their-feet working mums who ditch and run (that might be you– along with the guilt), then you get the fitness fanatics in their bouncy trainers and lululemon (that might not be you but wish it was), forever on their way to a keep-fit class or Zumba.
