I must confess... sometimes I forget to brush my hair.
Sometimes I walk out of the house without brushing my teeth, putting on mascara or lotioning up my legs.
A common aliment amongst Moms is the lack of personal time.
We rush and rush and rush to do everything for our children that we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves.
My eyebrows tend to grow wild, my elbows get rough and my toe nail polish is usually always in sad need of repair.
When my daughter was first born, it was the worst. I was lucky enough to have a husband that allowed me (meaning he agreed to watch our daughter even though he was scared out of his mind if she cried) to shower daily. But just because I was able to stand under some hot water for a few minutes doesn't mean that I was able to fully groom myself. I tended to run around in a spit-up covered shirt and mismatching socks.
Before you begin to think I'm horribly nasty and ill bred with grooming, I mean when Roo was younger that I was in and out of the shower so fast that I was lucky if I remembered to wash my face. When you're a Mom, you have so many things on your mind: what to make for dinner, what appointments need to be made, how to please this person and ignore that person.
It's an endless cycle that means we sometimes put ourselves last and everyone else first.
I've decided that this non-hair-brushing phase in my life needs to come to an end. Especially before my daughter grows up and my wild mane becomes fodder for embarrassment. I think it's important that I get this under control so I feel better about myself. I think it's super important that I remember what it's like to be a woman.
One with beautifully arched eyebrows, clean teeth and darkened eyelashes.
