Mom-to-Be Hilariously Mistakes a Car Seat Cover for a Skirt
February 19, 2019
Anyone woman who’s ever been pregnant knows, “Mom Brain” is real!
This blogger and mom-to-be Lori Farrell posted a hilarious photo of her outfit on Friday. Turns out what she thought was a skirt was a car seat cover!
“If you feel like a failure today, just know that I wore a car seat cover a friend gave me because I thought it was a skirt,” Farrell wrote, adding a string of laughing emoji.
She told HuffPost her first child is due in June, so she’s been gathering new and secondhand supplies in preparation.
“A friend of mine had messaged me that she had a bunch of baby stuff she was getting rid of,” Farrell explained. “I came home with a car full that day of enough baby clothes to cover our little girl’s first three months. She also gave me a pregnancy pillow, a rock and play, toys, shoes, baby carriers, etc. So when I pulled out the striped thing, I wasn’t really sure what it was. It was not in a package, just mixed in with the clothes and blankets/swaddles.”
So she decided the mysterious striped garment must be a skirt and put it on for work.
She asked a co-worker to photograph her outfit fail so that she could send it to her mom, but she also decided to post it on Facebook because it seemed relatable.
She was right, the post received more than 56,000 likes, with many moms expressing amusement and support in the comments section.
