I am not personally offended by the post. I do not necessarily agree that a lack of make up or `neat and tidy' clothes equates to not looking after yourself though. But, I am very aware that I do not want to have my kids dressed better than me. I always get properly dressed for the day (this does not mean high heels or fancy clothes), jeans and a cute top, a long skirt and a singlet whatever. I think if the post was coming from a place of `it's important for Mum's to put themselves somewhere near the top of the list of importance' then I agree. There will always be times in your kids lives where you are at the bottom, and there is literally no time for anything extra, but when things are cruising along, I do think it is important that you make time for yourself, to do some small thing that nurtures you (not necessarily spending time on your physical appearance).
