Good or Bad Hygiene


So I know your mind has to be going in all different directions trying to figure out what the title means. Well I will clarify. I believe once you become a mother of a newborn your sense of hygiene goes out the window. Or at least mine has.  There have been days where I have not had a shower. Also days where it has been late in the afternoon when I have gotten a chance to brush my teeth. I know Reiggin will get onto me. He always tells me that when she sleeps I need to take a shower or a nap. I have gotten better, but I am still paranoid about leaving her and taking a shower where I can't hear her well. And I am sure Reiggin is sick of seeing me in my red gym shorts and some random t-shirt. But that is my outfit for most of the week. I try to dress up a bit, but it just never happens. Now I know Lisa and Susan you are laughing saying I had the same bad hygiene before I had a child. Funny and some what true. I just can't wait to hear your stories Susan. Oh the joys that wait for you and Joe. And this picture of Virginia sleeping is one of few peaceful moments this week.

That is a SUPER cute picture of Virginia2. You know that's how I have to distinguish between my two nieces since you wanted to go and make it difficult on me.

Anyway, all I have to say is brush you teeth woman!!! That's nasty! I have heard many new mom's talk about not finding time to take a shower but the very first thing I do when I wake up is brush my teeth and I guarantee you it will still be the first thing I do when I wake up after Samantha arrives!
