Should I go straight or curly?

Usually, when I get up in the morning, I pull my hair back and wrap a rubber band around it and start the day. I have so much hair (thick and lots of it!) that styling my hair is a time-consuming affair. With a hectic morning routine of getting my daughter out of bed, dressing her, feeding her breakfast, then driving her to preschool, I rarely have time to get myself dolled up. So it boils down to, if I’m going somewhere special, have a client meeting, or getting together with some friends, I would make the effort to fix my hair so I look “decent.”

Husband (rolling his eyes): “Oh, brother!”

Me: “Hey, the first time one goes through labor and delivery it’s excusable to be unprepared. The new mom can look like a train wreck. The next time, she needs to know better. I need to look fabulous!”

So on top of the hair stylin’, I’ve had a pedicure so that I have cute piggies while my legs are in the stirrups (I’m gonna be looking at them a long time!), and I’ve had my wax appointment so that I have soft, smooth legs. I’ve got to be a “Yummy Mummy” this time around – and taking nesting to completely new heights! 🙂
