I'm a person too ya know?!

For the past 8 months my life can be summed up in one word: MOM.

I love being a Mom. I love my kids, I wouldn't trade them for anything in this world. However I have come to realize that I have lost who I used to be and have become "Gillian and Finley's mom".

When I was in High School I was popular. I was pretty, tall, and thin. I made friends easily, I was outgoing. Did I mention I was pretty?

When I look in the mirror now (which trust me isn't too often) I am so depressed by what I see. I have my hair up in a pony tail EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.

Makeup. Pft, what's that? Screw putting in my contacts. Who has time for that? Not me, slap on my glasses. Clothes. Whatever fits.

It is pathetic. I don't want to be that MOM anymore. I want to be a MILF for goodness sakes. I want to feel good about myself.

I put all my energy into my kids, what they are wearing, how cute they look, what they need and I have forgot about myself.

Well, that is going to change! I bought all new make up today. EVERYTHING. Eye shadow, eye liner's, lip gloss, name it I got it!

I am on a mission to wear my hair down everyday, wear make up, contacts and look at least half way presentable while I am out!

No more rut.

My kids are gonna have a MILF!

I totally relate. I too am almost always in a ponytail and no makeup. I keep saying I'm going to start doing my hair and makeup, not necessarily every day, but more often than now. Your post has inspired me!

It took me a year to get a hair cut, I totally feel you! I really want to be the milf to, till I realized I never leave the house! And I think pregnancy took away my ability to wear my contacts. Were my eyes always so dry before?
