Mum accidentally wears a car seat cover as skirt and we’ve all had days like those

Melissa Carton

We’ve all been there.

I can’t count the amount of times I’ve rushed out of the house in the morning only to realise later on that I’ve put my shoes on the wrong feet or that there’s a stain on my jumper.

One of my relatives even managed to leg it out of her house without her shoes or her house keys leading to her being locked out with no shoes. Oh the joys.

We’ve all had those kind of days as a parent which is why when I saw this post all I could think was ‘I feel ya’.

In fairness to her I know I would have made the same mistake if I had seen it laying around.

The mother in question posted the photo along with the caption;

“If you feel like a failure today, just know I wore a car seat cover that a friend gave me because I thought it was a skirt.”

Luckily it’s not that bad of a mistake as you wouldn’t actually be able to tell that it wasn’t a skirt unless it was pointed out to you.

Really she just found another use for it after it’s no longer needed for her child’s car seat anymore.

In fact I wouldn’t call that a failure at all, I’d call that a mum hack.
