Really! I look myself in the mirror these days, and what I see makes me jump! When did these extra kilos sneak up on me,when did I let myself go to the point of not plucking my eyebrows??? I must have fallen asleep on the job, the wife job that is. Fair enough that I am a mummy, and that mummies have less time to take care of themselves (unless they are Angelina Jolie or another such famous person with tons of babysitters and help) but that doesn’t mean that I am not still a wife, and thus should want to look good for my husband and MYSELF!
I used to get looks when I walked down the streets, and I think it is safe to say that they were the good kind of looks, the she is good looking kind of looks.I was never the prettiest girl in the world, but I was never an ugly duckling either..
I still get looks now, but only if someone bumps into me or if I happen to walk into someone else, other than that I really am see-through. I feel like Alfons Åberg’s invisible imaginary friend Mållgan. You can just walk right by me and not even notice that I am there..
So it is time for action! I will start by plucking my eyebrows and dropping some kilos, and maybe soon I will be the yummy mummy we all secretly want to be and maybe look more like these famous moms?
In the meantime I am going to slip into something comfortable (in other words NOT stylish) and head out with all three boys to lick up some sun in the park, the sun is back and it is beautiful!!
P.S NO, I do NOT have a self-esteem issue, and I am NOT unhappy with myself, I just recognise that action has to be taken before I go all cave-woman and stop shaving my legs!
Blog to you soon!
