Why don’t you see me very often? Because I’m a mom. Because now that I stay at home all day, I don’t always do my hair. I wear hoodies, different colors, one for each day of the week at least. My make-up bag may go unseen for an entire week without me missing it. I may have ignored my eyebrows for a reeeallllly long time. I usually look like I just rolled out of bed, perhaps I have. Once the kids are up, they are my attention. Its not that I don’t care, because when someone knocks at the door it becomes painfully obvious that I neglected to look in the mirror. I like to look good, but that sort of thing takes time, or at least a few minutes in the bathroom alone…..without someone clinging to my leg. I consider it a triumph if I get a shower in during their nap time. If they have a nap time. Also….I may be wielding a knife. Just sayin’.
