Friday Confessions- Single Parent Ridiculousness

 I admit

  • That I usually need to have a 'sitter/distractor/play assistant' over in order to complete REAL  Full, feeling clean shower- ya know- one where everything is shaved, exfoliated, shampoo'd AND conditioned AND fully rinsed, washed, even a little scrubbed. 

  • The last time I had a Real Full Shower- was a .... while ago. I drove 3 hours to my sisters, she was just giving the tyke a hug hello when I snagged the opportunity- "So, you're good with him? Ya?. I'm just gonna take a quick little shower" - where I hid in silence performed proper personal hygiene for over an hour a reasonable amount of time
  • I'm now attempting to schedule the young lady in these pictures once a week- so Momma can really shower.

  • Photo Booth is a great way to play for 2 hours- with someone else- while momma scrubs, lather, rinses, repeats, exfoliates, clips nails, q tips, razors and cotton balls.  
  • I have boundary issues and share too much personal info. But if you are soon to be a single mom- know this is possibly your life soon....
  • My son cracks me up.

Sadly, get this 100%!
However, my little is still little enough to sit in his bouncer chair thing and watch Sesame Street for 20 min without complaining, so I count myself blessed!

i have one good shower a week. and one filler crap one where there is no hair washing or shaving.

i totally understand. It can't happen until another person is here. Period.

different cicurmstances, same need for ridiculously long shower/hygiene session.
