Secret Mommy-hood Confession Saturday
I miss sharing me here so I figured I join in on the fun:
*What sacrifices have you made since becoming a parent?
Ha! That list is so bloody long…
And it’s not even since becoming a parent, it’s since becoming a parent of toddlers AGAIN.
When the teens were toddlers, I was in my early 20s and really had no life outside of them and work. Probably cause I had no money. ha!
As the girls got older and I became the smancy fancy color guru, things changed.
I had a wicked salary.
I had GNOs.
Hubby and I would head out to Josie’s Pub on Waverly place to shoot pool and drink.
I got my nails done.
I got my eyebrows done.
I got my hair done twice a fugging week.
I shopped for me and my girls from hardcover books at B&N to at least one new outfit for me once a month.
I had a bloody iPhone.
Now I’m in my 30s.
I’ve got two more toddlers now.
I’ve got no bloody time to do anything alone.
I’m lucky I had two pedicures last summer.
Don’t you dare ask about the caterpillars above my eyes.I may have to start feeding them.
Hairdresser? What the hell is that? Don’t remember.
I don’t know when the hell I last had a GNO, had to be before the kids were born.
Nights out with hubby? Big bloody laugh. That’s never gonna happen for at least the next 4 years.
Also, I haven’t seen the inside of a barnes and noble in ages.
*How do you sneak away when you just want to take a shower by yourself?
Sorry to tell you this girl, but I’ve always showered by myself (well when hubby’s not joining me)
I shower at midnight or 4 am, because there will be no little buggers in the bathroom with me, calling my boobies bellies and counting them for me.
How do I make up for the things I’ve sacrificed?
Hubby and I had to start getting a room every other Saturday just to have time alone. A room during the day, because we have to be home at night. No more nights shooting pool. No more nights at the bar with friends. But at least we have quiet time and us time.
Had to buy the instyler and lose out on those wicked scalp massages my hairdresser would give.
Thank god the teens are old enough to read what I read and I just buy nook books and synced all their iPods to my accounts. Hardcover? Ha!
I’m sacrificing…but it’s worth it.
So my mommyhood confession is, i have a battery operated hairdresser, i read less smutty supernatural fantasy then i use to and i have sex with hubby in strange beds every other week.
