I’ve grown up around moms and little kids my whole life. So I was ready for the long nights and crazy days. But one thing I always thought was crazy was how moms said they never had time to shower. What about nap time or when your husband is home? 5 months in and I get it now. You can shower at nap time, but he might wake up. Or you might have a hundred other things to do that need to be done when he’s asleep. And when your husband is home you want to spend time him or you have a hundred other things to do that can’t be with baby in tow. So some days a shower simply does not happen.
This is what I wear when I haven’t showered, but need to look nice. Maybe a quick dinner out or when friends offer to watch Jack at the last minute. I admit our weekly small group with church sees me like this every. week. Sunglasses to mask the under eye circles, fun lipstick to distract everyone, a nice top, comfy jeans, stylish shoes, and 12 lbs of dry shampoo in my top knot.
