Be The Best Mother You Can Be: Take time for yourself♥



So my follower Dani*LaLa commented on a post the other day and she mentioned that she takes time out of her day to get glammified every morning. I do the same!!! If not in the morning, for sure in the afternoon, even if I'm not going anywhere. It seems crazy but to me I feel as a mother, I "perform" my best when I know I look good, because I feel good! My mom always got ready in the morning and made sure she had makeup on before she left the house. High maintenance? I don't think so, just being a good mother and doing something for herself. I don't think it's selfish to do something for yourself as a mother, especially when it comes to getting yourself ready. Sure it's easier said then done, trust me I know! There has been times where I find a chance to get ready, then the kids wake up... outcome is I'm feeding my son a banana, rocking the baby in one arm, and putting on some false lashes with the free hand lol. It's crazy but worth it in my opinion. I just want to encourage all you mothers to do the same, your worth it and so is your family!

I stay home with my daughter so I'm usually in pajamas all week. BUT I do give myself manicures and pedicures just to give myself a boost of confidence =)

@Yanina: It is hard! I am fortunate to stay be a home mom so I can find some time during the day.

@Miss Tapia: lol yes that's me most of the time. But I always make sure I have some makeup on lol. But that's great you do that!

OMG I got a shout out YAY!!!!

But I LOVE this post it is so very true. My mom was the same way when I was growing up so maybe that is why I always put the extra effort into getting myself glammified in the morning. For some reason it just brightens up the mood for the day. And I think we have all been there when we attempt to get ready in the morning and then that's when the little ones decide to wake up.
But to all my stay @ home moms or how I like to say Sexy @ home moms stay glammified you deserve it =).

I am a single stay at home mom but I also go to school online so I rarely find the energy to do anything. I've been trying to find different activities I can do for myself, and your suggestion of getting glammed up every day is simple but great. I always get glammed up when I leave the house so and it makes me feel great, so I'm sure getting glammed at home will be great as well.
