I am a busy mom of three and fortunate to stay home with my kiddos. I do occasionally venture out places besides the grocery store and playground and when I do I always feel impatient to get going because I don’t have time to waste or the kids are underfoot! How do I get ready for that occasional date night with the hubs? I’ve got three things I do to get myself out the door before I turn into a pumpkin!
- Start early. If I don’t start ‘getting ready’ two hours before then I’ll be two hours late. No. I’m not talking about getting myself ready…I’m talking about getting ready to get ready! You know…making sure the kids are prepped with all of the things they’ll magically ‘need’ when I’m walking out the door.
- Have your kids get ready with you. I know you think I’m crazy. ‘Won’t that just delay her?’ No! My kids love helping mom put on deodorant and perfume and they think it’s fun to be grown up. They help me put on lip gloss or get my contacts for me. They love it and it beats them fighting! I also know that they think it’s pretty special that mom asked for their help to make her feel pretty.
- Keep it simple. Less is more. I like a good moisturizer and maybe some tinted lip gloss. Besides, those kids helping you already think your beautiful from head to toe!
