I HAVE to shower daily

I think just about every SAHM I know feels like it's a good day if she gets a shower. Am I wrong?

I absolutely HAVE to take a shower every morning. I hope this doesn't make me sound like a snob, I understand those mom's who don't have time or choose not to shower. I've been there. They want that extra 30 min. of sleep, wake up late, or spend that time getting ready to face the day so they're not rushing later.

Whatever the reason, I get it. I've been there myself some days.

But for me, I have to wash my hair and feel like a person. It's not a vanity thing. I'm the mom who wears yoga pants 5 out of the 7 days a week, I don't wear any make up and spend about 5 minutes on my hair in the morning. I just don't feel normal until I have a shower.

 Not even on a good day will I ever look put together like these ladies (I know they have a whole team to help them look this way).

But I also like to think I don't look this bad when I wake up.

I used to wake up right after my Hubby so I could shower w/ him still home in case the kids woke up. Ever since Xmas, I've been slacking in my routine and when Hubby leaves at 7 AM, I'm still snoozing.

My son or daughter wakes me up and I hope I have time to shower before having to be at our morning activity. My daughter is at the age where I can jump in the shower and not worry too much about her getting into much. Most of the time she follows me in the bathroom and bangs on the shower door.

Some days, I don't have time and I'm ok going thru the day that way. It's just another day in the life of a SAHM.

  1. Amen, sister! A lot of people I'm crazy to trade sleep for my shower, but I just can't skip it. The sad thing is, I also put on make-up and dry my hair still...but I only have 1 child, and I'm sure that would change if we had another! :)
