I seriously can't believe that our littlest intern is 4 months old already. I'm going to be honest with you, this time off of my day job has not been all roses and cupcakes. Having 2 kids in the house is HARD - each one is pulling you in different directions...one needs a diaper change, one needs a snack, and there is no way they are napping at the same time so you literally don't get a break. Now don't get me wrong, I love these 2 littles of mine and would do anything for them but the time that I had to myself is gone at the moment.
When I looked in the mirror all I saw was a tired mom, huge bags under her eyes, wearing yoga pants and a baggy tee shirt with most likely spit up on it somewhere. Pretty much just not feeling like my prettiest self.
And then a few weeks ago I was able to see my true self. Both kids were napping so that meant I had some extra time to get ready before we went apple picking! I didn't have to worry about anyone else but myself for a whole 15 minutes and it was glorious. The kiddos actually slept long enough that I could get a few things photographed too. Before you knew it the kids were up again and away I was back to being super mom.
It wasn't until I was looking at the pictures from the quick photoshoot the next day that I shocked myself. There, right in front of me, was one hot momma! I legit shocked myself! This was the reminder I needed to remember that I am beautiful, whether I'm going out on the town or in my yoga pants.
This is a great reminder to all the Mommas out there focused on their kiddos and feeling like they have lost themselves a bit. I'm here to tell you that you are still YOU and you are gorgeous lady! We are all beautiful women trying to do the best thing for our babies and families.
Until next week!
