Well it wasnt actually today, it was yesterday and it was great!
A typical Wednesday for us means wake up, get ready and then off to a morning session of stay and play. Usually this means waking up half an hour before we have to leave, rushing around like a mad woman trying to make Amelia eat her breakfast in a timely manner, dress a toddler and baby and then throw my hair up in a Mum bun and find something quick to wear.
Yesterday I woke up a little bit earlier and left the babies in bed for an hour and actually did my hair and make up for once! It feels like it’s been years since I’ve actually made any effort with myself and it was a really nice change!
My hair was straight
My eyes were black
My clothes were clean.
It doesn’t sound like much – it isn’t – nor is it the achievement of the century but it was a huge achievement for me and it really was something big.
Typically as mothers we take so much time making sure out children are perfectly groomed and well fed that we often neglect ourselves and end up going out looking well.. nor our best. I’d be a total hypocrite if I sat here and told you all to take some time for yourself and treat yourself – child free. It’s not something that I do at all but it’s something we should ALL be doing.
What have you done this month for you?
