Todays Theory...

Okay, so I have five minutes before I pick up my babysitter, but just had these thoughts rolling in my head.

Yesterday was partly a lie. Capris are still really cute on my mom.

And that maybe I don't put myself as priority number one. But I'm not moaning about it.

I chose this. Even though I can't remember when I last bought a shirt for myself and desperate need to replace my now one-inch lipliner that I've had for two years. In my brief single years I would have never guessed I could be so low-maintenance. I know my beauty salon friend shudders when she sees my eyebrows and pores. but I'm on a budget and sacrificing time and money to have this lifestyle. Because dang right I could be some fancy corporate woman, which is why my kids are so dang lucky to have me as there mom. Even a crazy one whose house keeping skills are sub-par. Cause at least they get plenty of me.

And that is why, every minute I get to myself I deserve. Not that I think it should be the same as someone who doesn't have children. Because for this time in my life, I am in the trenches. There will be later days for two hours at the gym. But right now I have to run at 5:10 a.m. because that is what I can do (even though I've skipped this week). And its great.

Now off to reclaim some resemblence of a girl.

Motherhood is a foreign land to me. I think all my friends are amazing Moms and I waited so long (mormon standard) to have my own critters that I get to steal all of your parenting skills! My Mom made it look so easy but now I have my suspicions! ;)

I am jealous that you were getting a baby sitter. Fun fun. There always should be time for you. :)

Brooke, you and my mom make it look easy but my nails have never looked worse and I don't want to discuss my eyebrows or the dark circles under my eyes BUT I wouldn't have it any other way. I love staying home with my Emma Pie.

I am so with you on needing a break that our fam is in PS right now and Chris knows I need a sanity break so he is out for a few hours with the boys so I can do nothing and I have no grandma around. It is the best thing!! I am looking for Access Hollywood or Extra or something cheesy like that to watch.

Put a pic of your cute cut on the blog. You are an awesome MOm!!
