Being a mother is a very peculiar thing. Having children can make you forget to shower for days. (Shut up. I know it’s gross and I also know it has happened to more people than just me!) It can make you say “Fuck it. These pajamas are all the rage in this house.” It can also make you forget about highlights and coloring and hair cuts galore. The things you used to do for beauty can be completely thrown out the door. Pshh who cares if you have sasquatch eyebrows. You won’t be have adult interaction for another three days. Shaved legs? Who need em’.
I know I have been guilty of everything above and more. Most days I put my hair up and don’t change out of the clothes I woke up in until I shower, which is generally at night. I hate getting ready for nothing. I sit at home most days and don’t do a freaking thing. I play with my kids and never see anyone who would actually give a shit about my appearance.(Besides my husband who says “Oh, you’re sexy no matter what!”) But I can firmly tell you that life sucks! I know that when the above start happening more and more often it’s a sign of bad to come. It usually means I have a nice fog of depression coming around. I like to feel sexy and pretty occasionally. I like to be told I’m hott by the hubby.
I was recently in one of these funks. I haven’t felt attractive in probably two or three months. It’s hard. I mean right now it’s so hot out and since our car doesn’t have air I don’t go out if I can avoid it. I haven’t been to a play date since April. But just as easily as it is to get into one of these funks for me it is just as easy to get out. A new haircut and piercing did it for me this time. I mean I don’t get a new piercing every time I want to feel good about myself but this time I did. I was originally going to get an anti eyebrow piercing but decided on getting a Microdermal piercing.
I also got a new haircut. I love it. Its short and breezy, unlike the rats nest that I previously enjoyed. I must admit I stole the type of cut from a friend and my sister has a similar one as well. But whatever. It’s cool(as in temperature) and cute! *I am in a tank top not just a sports bra. Also don’t mind the complete lack of makeup. It was like 10:30p.m when I got home.*
All of us mommies deserve a mini makeover sometimes. What do you do for your mini makeovers? Or how do you shake the funk off?
