I am constantly torn between having a clean house, happy kids and wanting to look good.
I'll have days where I think "who cares what I look like!? As long as my kids are happy, and shit is taken care of then right now that shouldn't matter!". Then I'll have days where I look in the mirror and wonder where I went! I feel like on the days I "try" to look nice, I apply a small amount of make up (because it's not like I am going to prom for pete's sake). Then when I look at my closet and try to pick out an outfit and I'll think about what my tasks are that day? Vacuum, dishes, cooking, playing with the boys and dog, maybe running to the store? Then I will tend to pick something like cargo shorts and a t shirt that doesn't show cleavage. The moment I walk in the door from running out somewhere my basketball shorts replace the cargo shorts, and my hair goes into a pony tail.
I have a few friends that are Mom's just like me that look nice ALL THE TIME. And it's not like when they post pictures online they look nice, it's more like I see them on a daily basis they look nice. What happened to my motivation? Did being busy with tantrums and bubbles take it all? I try to exercise daily, and clean the house daily, and fit in an etsy shop order daily, plus laundry and meals, dishes. I feel like how could I care right now!? I've got enough going on. Nothing like putting on my high heels to go pick up the dog shizzle piles in my backyard.
I know that this won't last forever, but I wonder if my laziness will!
And I know I am not the only one.
Speak up so I know.
