You wouldn't have known I was a mother - I dropped DD off at school without leaving the car... but then decided I needed a coffee if I was going to get any housework done today, so went to the most bogan shopping centre nearby so I didn't feel so unattractive. Was wearing my work shoes (Crocs ballet flats), a cheap k-mart dress, hair in a ponytail done up with a kid's red bow really messily, and no make-up. I looked like crap... but meh. I was going home to clean... I don't want to ruin my nice clothes cleaning.

    I think if "looking nice," isn't a priority for people it's no skin off my nose. I DO feel sorry for the mums who WANT to look nice, but don't know how to, don't have the time or money to, etc... but that's not the same as "couldn't care less."
    And those are the times I run into people I know.

    The OP may have seen you today and thought that you don't do anything for yourself, because she only saw a moment of you. OP, I really don't think we can presume anything about peoples lives or motivations or how they spend their time.

    But while we are at it, could you please breif the girls that work at Boost about these 2 minute, neat ponytails...apparently their mums did a lot for themselves and didn't have time to teach them *Ponytails 101*.

    Me and DH are looking a little daggy lately lol, I also just happen to be a mum lol.

    People love buying baby clothes for DD, she has a great new wardrobe every few months when she goes up a size. I haven't bought normal clothes for myself in over a year, this is my second pregnancy in close succession and my few maternity outfits are starting to look a bit threadbare. DH has been doing lots of outdoors work and renovations.

    I always brush my hair and put on a very light layer of lipstick if I'm going out though, it doesn't take much time (I use my own time to play games and relax, I've never been into hair and makeup ).
    As for the other stuff, I eat well (as does DD), and exercise when I can. I think those kinds of things are taught by example and I would think most mums interested in feeding their kids a good diet would eat well themselves.

    Either way I don't make assumptions based on a quick look at someone, I've certainly had bad days where I've been rushed and tired and realized on the way home my shirt was stained or my hair had gone a bit feral.

    Lol I've done this too gotten all way to shop n gone oh crap I'm not wearing a bra. I'm a dag I've lost weight none of my clothes or bras fit properly anymore & it sux. I don't get time to deal to my homeless looking hair so it just gets tied up (takes 2hrs to straighten ) & don't wear make up unless I'm going out somewhere which isn't very often. Do my nails occasionally but they always peel damn you oily nail beds
    Where as I always make sure kids are clean & presentable

    Pre children I used to buy expensive cleanser, toner, moisturiser and HAD to do that every day. Now I'm a mum I can't afford any of that so I just started washing my face with a flannel and water and what do you know?! My skin is actually BETTER without all that expensive crap.

    I also don't buy half as many clothes in a spending frenzy (wasting $) but now do my research and appreciate items that I buy occasionally.

    I don't HAVE to go to the hairdresser every 6 weeks now. Ill go every 10 (or less) and guess what? It doesn't matter! My dh still loves me and so do all my friends and family.

    Sorry a little off topic but having kids has actually HELPED me (in some ways) with my appearance.
