I've been thinking a lot about taking care of myself lately. Getting dressed in the morning, instead of staying in my PJs until the afternoon. Doing my hair -- I'm talking totally busting out the straightener. And occasionally, doing my makeup even if I'm not even leaving the house. Wearing accessories. Painting my nails. All those estrogen-lead things. When you become a mother, all your focus goes to your child, and often we forget that sometimes we have certain needs that make us unique and beautiful as women. Just because you are a mother does not mean those wants must be pushed to the side. There is nothing wrong or selfish about doing something for yourself. I find that personally, I am more productive during the day and more attentive to my children if I am put together. I feel good about myself. I've done a few giveaways on my blog, and all of them have been for the babes. Who doesn't love a brand new cloth diaper for the cute little butt in your life? But this time mamas, I'm hosting a giveaway for you. yay!
