Do you have days that you feel like you need instructions on how to take a shower? My brain is that fried. The two brain cells I have left thank you pregnancy hormones for killing the rest and sparing them the daily pain are hiding from my children.
Actually, forget instructions for taking a shower. Can someone just remind me to do it? Really? Between saying ‘don’t hit your brother’, ‘we don’t play with electrical cords’ and ‘scissors are not for our brother’s hair’ some days I completely forget. Before I had kids, I was a shower every day, 45 minutes to an hour to get ready kind of gal. I didn’t go out without make-up, always dried my hair and would have never considered going out in anything less than jeans and a nice top. Fast forward a few years…
Most days, I settle for a super quick shower (if that) and leave the house with wet nappy hair. If I don;t manage a shower, there’s only a 50% chance I will actually brush my hair. Sometimes I just grab it and pull it up quick. I’ve become ‘that mom’. You know, the one in the drop off line who looks like hell in pj pants, flip flops and a t-shirt.
I’m ok with it though.
