Once you enter the realm of mommyhood things that you always took for granted–like the ability to shower at least once a day!
I’ve always made sure that I make the time to take care of myself even after my kiddos were born though! I know that when I start to feel frumpy and run down everyone suffers! Even on the days when I don’t even leave the apartment I’m sure to squeeze in a shower and put on at least my foundation and mascara. It makes me feel so much more motivated!
As I tell my friends, I swear by early bedtimes for fitting showers and relaxing baths in. When I bathe at night I can be sure that I won’t get interrupted and can take a nice, long, relaxing hot shower–or a soothing bubble bath!
On the days I work out I want a shower in the middle of the day, and since I work out at home that means I have the kiddos running around. I usually put Tyler into his crib with a few books and safe toys and take a quick shower. I’ve always believed that it’s important for kiddos to learn how to entertain themselves–and that things like showers for mommy are important! I know several of my friends let their kiddos wander in and out while they’re in the shower–and that’s what I do/did with Amber a lot. Tyler is a whole different kettle of fish, however, and so I put him away for his own safety (haha!)
On days like this quick fixes and helps are always appreciated! And this is why I love the Venus & Olay Razor. Since the bars are built onto it you can just run it over your legs without even worrying about lathering up your loofa. Although I’m not crazy about the bars during a nice relaxing time (they are a bit hard to maneuver so I prefer my regular Venus then) I love this razor for my after workout showers! It even comes with a nifty little suction cup holder so the bars won’t stick to anything, and it makes it nice and handy to grab!
A big thanks to Influenster for helping make this mommy’s showertime that much easier!
Do you have any secrets for fitting that all important shower into your busy mommy day?
