I'm still a little in awe that both my mom and husband think it is reasonable to leave me by myself with three small children. Did I mention I only have two hands?
So, I've been thinking how it could be tempting to skip things like brushing my teeth, my hair, or you know, the dog hair off my clothes. But, I'm guessing that would only serve to make me feel frumpier, not to mention stinkier and hairier. Fortunately I remembered a sweet friend's advice.
This friend, also a mother of three rather young children, mentioned that she keeps extra toiletries in the downstairs powder room.
Aha! I can do that.
I will soon be stashing a toothbrush, toothpaste, a comb, and extra make-up in the bathroom downstairs. Then, I can make myself somewhat presentable without having to either leave the children unattended downstairs or let them trash my room while I get ready.
Of course, I'll probably keep the mints close at hand just in case.
