since i had jackson, i've not done any of that. i've been taking "power showers". you know, the get in-scrub down-get out kind of showers. i was beginning to feel more animal than human. so last night after we put the kids down, i filled the tub up for a bath. it was in a word: glorious! i shaved my legs for the first time in almost 3 weeks (you're welcome!) seriously, you try chasing around 2 toddlers and managing a newborn. yeah, you wouldn't have time either! afterwards i lit a few candles and grabbed my lotion and a bottle of nail polish (sally hansen #340 "mint sorbet")
next i got a cup of coffee and a big glass of water in my favorite glass.
finally i feel like a woman again. [insert blissful sigh here]
michael and i watched "the tourist" last night together. it was wonderful.
i know (firsthand) that it's hard to find time for yourself when you have kids. but guess what? you deserve to feel beautiful too! take some time for yourself today.
what kind of routines/rituals do you have?
