    I'm that mum.

    Being single we don't have a lot of money, the kids get what they need first and I'm left with old clothes that are 2 sizes to big because I've lost weight.

    I don't like it but the kids need to have what they need before I buy myself new clothes.

    I never really got the opportunity to buy clothes without having 2 kids fighting at my feet, further to that, I was losing weight so didn't want to buy new clothes that wouldn't fit for very much longer. Add to that the fact I had an under 2 year old so carrying her wrecked my clothes, why buy new clothes thats just going to get ruined?

    Next time you see me just hi, I don't bite, I promise.

    I don't shave, I don't wear fashionable clothes, there often ill fitting (weight loss/gain cycle) and I would would much rather buy something we need than clothes for me. I NEVER wear make up and well my hair is the last thing I care about.

    Seriously who gives a rats bum what I look like, my friends and family accept and love me for who I am not what I look like. If your in a crisis I am the first one there, and doesn't matter to me if I have to step in cow poo to help you. Clothes are just clothes. They wash.

    To answer your question "that just who I am."

    Everything above and add- pregnancy changed my body shape so even clothes I did look good in pre-kids don't fit we'll any more.

    My kids look awesome because I am lucky enough to have some beautiful hand me downs for them. Unfortunately none for me!

    And I have a day-hugger baby (she wants to be held all day)- I can barely go to the toilet without her losing it. How am I supposed to invest the time into my appearance if I can't even wee in peace?

    And your very much awesome too Jen. I am the same as you.

    Right now i just had a shower for the first time since getting home from night duty and i needed it. I havent brushed my hair yet and travelled into the city. I never buy clothes or shoes for myself so what i have are really old currently.

    I just don't have the time anymore or even want to spend all that money on myself anymore! Since I had my son priorities shifted away from myself, I just don't need to be attractive for others or what they think I should look like, it's very liberating after spending years buying clothes, getting hair done, nails done or whatever else. My time is precious, my hubby works 7 days a week, there just is not the time like I used to have, and it doesn't worry me at all. Sometimes I make an effort, most times I cbf, and I don't care or judge others on this either, everyone is different.

    Having said that i do wish mums could sort out some time to exercise each day and eat well. So important for mental and physical well being.

    I couldn't give a rats **** what people wear. It's more important to be happy and healthy.
    I agree with all of this. I agree with those saying 'who cares' but I do care if someone is actually not looking after themselves. I don't care what anyone looks like, but I do think mums need to do some things for themselves. Not necessarily get their hair done or wear nice clothes, but keep themselves happy and healthy and find time to be not 'just' mum.

    I'm another. My kids always come first and I tend to put their needs and wants before my own.
    I actually much prefer spending time finding and dressing the kids in nice clothes.
    I've stacked on 30kgs since having DS2 so buying and dressing myself is a rather depresssing experience so I much prefer to chuck on a pair of jeans and a shirt and be done with it.
