Adventures of Being a Mommy

I don't know about my fellow Mommy's but I think one of my biggest struggles is not being able to "Look my best" all the time anymore. Lets think about it here, I have the time I'm sure but don't always feel like putting the whole effort forth because, really I don't see a lot of people during the day or it seems like a lot of effort for nothing. Even though it helps me feel better. Like a double edged sword.

I love being able to work out with leaves me scccchhhweeeeaatttyy. B.O! Yum. But at least I worked out. I put Cody in the stroller and he sits there patiently (usually) while I put in 35 minutes on the treadmill. Then I feel bad for wanting to go home and make him sit around patiently while I take a shower, blow dry my hair, put on my face, get dressed, and then do what? Dishes? Or play with him? He doesn't care how I look. Instead, I'll craft, or play with him, clean, blog, or bake. Kevin has told me time and time again that I look fine and he doesn't really care as long as he's fed and I'm happy. He's completely understanding.

How I wake up looking.
And usually look like after a long day including a run.
I'll usually shower every other day.
Then after a few hours put on a little make up, but never do my hair.
Luckily it dries pretty reasonably.
But Sundays are my FAVORITE! Kevin lets me shower and get ready with no interruptions.
I know I can't be the only one who is this way. Seriously. Lets be honest here.
Can I get a holla back??
Don't leave me hangin.

Honey, I haven't gotten a shower since Friday night. Not that I didn't want to, it just was not something I could squeeze in this weekend. Lol I totally know what you are talking about and even though I have on no face or haven't showered, I usually have on jewelry (lol small Silpada plug) -Kelsee

I think that I spend a lot of time in my sweats. I never go grocery shopping during the day I always go at night because it is so much nicer to not have to drag 2 kids around screaming with me and anyways I can't sleep. I never get dressed up unless I am going to a doctors appointment or church. I find no point in it if I don't go anywhere either. I feel like it's a waste of time to get all dolled up and never go or do anything.

It has nothing to do with being a mom - I don't think. If I don't see a reason to wear make-up or do my hair, then I don't. And that is more often than not... I feel bad cuz I look like such a bum, but there's no point in wasting all that effort.

Suzi, I'm not even a mom yet and on days that I have nothing to do, nowhere to go (usually Saturday)... I don't even put my makeup on and sometimes don't even hit the shower until right before bed. So... I think you're doing pretty dang good :)

This is a constant mommy struggle. And, it only get worse. This last baby has pushed me fully over the edge. I do think it gets better as time goes on. At least it better.

I conquer. I wake up when Aubrey wakes up, and if it is after 7am then I stay awake. I feed her, then she watches me exercise for a little. Then she gets a nap in her swing while I shower. Makeup makes me feel put together and ready for anything, but most of the time it is on the back burner because I am home and who cares? I might dab a little on before heading to JoAnns, but other than that I usually bum it. But yes, Saturdays and Sundays are awesome because Alan lets me get ready REALLY COMPLETELY READY for the day all by myself.

You crack me up and I totally do the same thing. Being a mom is awesome.

I have realized my problem is not that I don't want to, I seem to get so much more done if I am dressed and ready to go. I seem to leave the house more and actually accomplish something. My biggest deal however is that I enjoy sleeping in so much more then waking up before McKenna does. Oh well, prioritizing is something I have never been good at.
