I get up most mornings and make an effort to get dressed up. I want to make myself feel good because on the days when I do not make an effort when my hair looks like a birds nest when I am walking around in sweats not wearing a bra and looking like I was hit by a mac truck I feel like shit. So maybe I am shallow because I depend on a daily beauty regiment to make myself feel good about myself. Or maybe I realize that no one can keep daily maintaince on my self-esteem but moi. I mean how can I expect others to make me feel good about myself? Why is that their job. Do you respect people who look like slobs in banks or retail jobs? What about school teachers? Why should Mothers be any different? Even when I have a child who wipes their nose on me or their hands you can see that I made an effort to get up and get dressed and at least TRY.
But I don't just do it for me...I do it for my husband. I will admit it. The most important person in my life I still dress for. I still look at myself in the mirror before he comes home to make sure I look cute for him I think about if he will like the outfit that I decide to wear and if it will make him want to throw me down on the couch like before we had children. (Just FYI he still attempts to throw me on the couch but we have lil people the ruin the mood :) ) I think he appreciates the fact that I try for him and I appreciate the fact that he tries for me. So really can you look down on the women who have on full battle paint and heels with their children who more likely than not look just as put together as they do?
What do you think?
