I judged a mum yesterday at school pick up time, lol. She is in her mid 40's, was wearing a sloppy joe jumper, jeggines and high heels. And when I say high heels, I mean stillettos! Like who does that? lol

I do and i don't...I really don't give a rats really what anyone wears, really do people judge because they see a mum in trackies? Who cares? Unless a see a mum REALLY skimpily dressed i honestly don't notice. I don't have the money for designer labels myself, everything i wear is form target or kmart or the op shop. I don't really notice makeup either. Again care factor 0. The only thing i do notice sometimes is the make and model of a car,if its expensive i just think they obviously have money.But thats it really.

Before i had kids i did
Bt these days i dont have the time or the energy to be worried about what someone else is wearing.
People judge me as a parent every time i leave the house, because my children have invisible disabilities, and most people have no idea whats involved with that.
I overheard parents in the parenting room thinking i was molesting my child, and questioning to go get security on me...we were just doing theraputic brushing... *shrug* i didnt bother explaining because they couldnt comprehend what my job as mother to these kids really means, while they cradle their perfect newborn.

Im the trackie mum Ive been known to go barefoot and in my pjs when I know I dont have to get out of the car!
I don't have time to primp before school..my time is spent making sure the kids have fresh, healthy and full lunch boxes, and that they are ready to go on time. Im not getting up earlier than I have to to impress anyone with my fashion sense.

I used to until I became a mum!
Now it's really only if I see someone smacking/swearing at her child or feeding it rubbish , I put my mcjudgy hat on mainly because I feel bad for the child
I have a lot more empathy for mums now I realize it is hard to always walk out of the house looking perfect when you have a toddler running after you!

I must be weird but I don't think I would notice if a mother was wearing a tracksuit covered in holes or a Chanel designer dress! Could not care less.
I do make judgements based on behaviour though. Good and bad. Possibly sometimes unfair but I try my best not to.

Sometimes if a mum is out every weekend straight leaving the kids each weekend to do yes. U had ur child look after them.
I also judged a mum yesterday while I was at my ultrasound she just had one was booking another for 20 weeks she had packet smokes on desk and was complaining about the price of ultrasound. Maybe if you weren't smoking harming ur unborn child you wouldn't have a problem with the fee.

Everybody judges other people. Even if it's judging someone for being too judgmental.
If I'm having negative thoughts about someone in regards to either their appearance (very rare for me to even notice someones appearance let alone judge for it) or the way they are acting, I keep those opinions to myself. It's likely that if I got to know that person and why they were acting or looking the way they do I would change my opinion.
