It's not my fault.

Are you That Girl who thinks, "I will never let myself look like that when I have kids"?

I was totally that girl. I admit it, I judged other moms who "let themselves go".

I have a secret to tell you. It's not their fault. If you have more than one child (and sometimes even just the one is enough to throw you way off course) - especially if they're in school - I can almost guarantee you haven't had a chance to get 100% dolled up in weeks. When exactly would one do that? I haven't been able to blow dry my hair in months. Makeup? I adore makeup, but I have actually turned into That Mom. You know, the one who goes out of the house with minimal makeup (sometimes even NONE - *GASP!*) for the sake of getting everyone where they need to be when they need to be there.

Who knew one day my priorities would slip so far... Then again, I don't think that's what's happened. I haven't let myself slip, I have intentionally chosen to put my effort into my husband, my kids, and my homework. There's no time left for me, but in the end, I find that I feel more proud of myself and what I accomplish than I ever felt when I spent hours getting ready just for me.

  1. I was definitely "that girl" and now I am "the girl who let herself go." I am happy to know I am not the only woman out there who is slacking a bit in the "good looks" department. I like how you put it though: I didn't let myself go, I gave myself away to people who I love more than myself. And I respect any woman who has done the same.
