You are NOT just a mom!

I feel like I have become a mom and lost myself. I don't care what I look like when I leave the house (to a certain point) I mean I brush my hair and I don't dress like a complete slob, but I don't wear make up or take the time to straighten or do my hair other than put it up in the good ol' elastic. If hubby and I go out I will wear make up and do my hair and all that jazz but day to day I just don't make the time. I think us moms need to try and get back to where we used to be. I mean still put our kids first and all that of course....but make time for yourself too. Don't forget that you are a woman as well as a mom! Take the time to doll yourself up once in a while, make more time for your hubby, and have "me" time too. From now on in the morning I am going to try to wake up before my kids, have my coffee (me time) and relax before the usual day begins. I am also going to get my nails done...not to look good, not just for my hubby, but for ME! I love having pretty nails, makes me happy looking at them and getting a new design every 2-3 weeks. My advice to you is to be you, take time for yourself. Don't forget that you are a woman, not just a "mom" <3 What do you do for yourself?
