Between the juice box spills, early morning and all night wake ups and the days biggest event being a trip to the grocery store…it’s temping to just throw on some mom jeans and give up on the whole sexy thing.
Who has time for an hour primp session when you can barely convince your children to allow you a peaceful potty break?
The problem is, you can’t give up. Even if you want to.
Why? You ask.
Because you PROMISED yourself you would NEVER DO THAT. And listen, you wouldn’t hold you to it but, it’s not the first time you’ve let younger you down. That minivan didn’t buy itself, Europe is still waiting for you to show up on that back packing trip and your kids eat sugar regularly…often before lunchtime.
You can’t let past you down again!
She got you through MIDDLE SCHOOL for heaven sake!
She deserves more than that.
and I’m not saying you need go all “Stacy’s Mom” hot or anything but you’ll feel better and you’ll be doing you junior proud if you take FIVE MINUTES (or actually 4 minutes) to spiff up your face like this:
OH, and for all of you who wanted the pregnancy glow makeup, this mommy tutorial double for that as well!
