What a morning! The kids are at school again today and if it was socially acceptable to have wine at 8 in the morning,
I did have a little NSV this morning when I talked myself out of stopping for a fast food biscuit and hash browns on my way home and I'll be having my oatmeal instead. It's little, but it counts for something...about 600 calories!
I honestly don't have much to talk about, but I thought I'd touch a bit on something I struggle with. The mom funk.
I don't have to get dressed most days, so I don't. Recently though, I've stopped putting in any effort even when I leave the house! I am one of those tired, disheveled moms all. the. time. Tuesday, I met one of my girlfriends for dinner and I just did not feel like doing anything to myself. I knew she wouldn't care (she was coming from the gym anyway), so I debated throwing the mane back in a ponytail and wiping the mascara out from under my eyes and calling it done. Who cares?? I thought about it though and remembered Megan's post from just that morning. Since staying home with sweet baby Aiden she has mentioned a few times that making a little effort and getting pretty helps her attitude toward herself and everyone around her. So I recurled my hair, redid my eyes and left the house feeling much peppier than I'd felt all day.
Any other moms in a funk? Let's put some mascara on and pull ourselves out of it together...some days.
