Have you seen that Meme that shows the comparison between the moms you meet at your child’s school? It was a humorous and eye opening experience for most of us. I always thought I had it so much more together than that, but: meet me, “Hot Mess” mom. Yes, I am always running late, my hair does whatever it wants, I might have breakfast lurking somewhere on my shirt, and my kids never have matching socks. I honestly thought that was normal.
Since all of my motherly flaws were pointed out to me in a fun and loving way, I decided that, maybe, it was time to take this mom thing up a notch. I’m going to start small, get used to taking care of my personal care, and then work my way out.
Up first is my hair. Last week I snuck out of the house by myself to grab milk, when a hair salon caught my attention. With knots in my stomach, I pulled in for a quick cut and style. It was the first hair cut I’ve had in two years. My dead ends were baffling to the stylist who lectured me that I need to stop wearing my hair up and condition more frequently.
When I left, I remembered that there was so much more I was neglecting than just my hair. On my next shopping trip, I had made sure to make a personal care Back to School shopping list for myself.
My shopping list included a new hair care system, a small supplies pouch, notepad, and pretty purple pen! It doesn’t sound like much, but these are what I decided I needed the most to get out “hot mess mom” status!
Why Suave? Because I have years of damage to my long hair and I wouldn’t allow my stylist to cut my hair as short as she wanted. The NEW Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair products claim to visibly repair two years of damage — that’s what I need! Two years of damage, fixed without compromising length!
As for the rest of my list. I’m a mom of six (due with baby seven in December), and I cannot remember anything without writing it down. I’ve tried keeping standard size notebooks handy but they always end up being left behind. This time, I will be tackling everything with my palm-sized notepad readily available. I even bought a special “just for me” pen to go with it!
