I dress in trackies bc they are comfortable and loose and hides parts of my body that are very unflattering. Lots of my old clothes don't fit well anymore and I find it hard to get clothes that look good. Also don't have a lot of time to go shopping and don't have lots of money to spend. Kids on the other hand are just too cute and so easy to find good quality clothes they look great in just about anything!
In terms of eating, I make an effort to cook healthy food for my kids bc I want them to grow up with good eating habits and to help them grow. I eat the same food that I cook for them BUT I also loooove junk food so will sneak some when the kids are in bed or when I am at work. Naughty food tastes good but obviously I don't want to pass this onto my kids so will limit their junk intake.
With personal grooming eg hair etc, what's the point when the kids jump all over you, want to play hairdresser and proceed to pull at your hair. I don't wear make up but would also think what's the point, wouldn't the make up get smudged with kids always crawling all over and wouldn't the lipstick get on the kids cheeks when you kiss them?
With exercise, looking after 2 young kids I am constantly on my feet getting them stuff, cooking, cleaning, tidying etc when I get some time to myself I just want to relax and chill!
Well those are my reasons

Me & DH still put most of our time & effort into DS than ourselves because we think he'll just be little and needs us for a short time.

Most of the time i look like robert smith on a good day.
Ds#1 looks good cause he dresses himself
Ds#2 looks like a homeless man because he dresses himself
And dd looks like a princess because shes my princess ^_^
I spend the most time trying to get ds#2 into the right frame of mind to leave the house and then dragging him i to the car etc. if i hadto get up an extra hour early so i 'looked neat and tidy to satisfy strangers in the street. Id turn into a serial killer. Cause inuave enough shiz to worry about!

I don't wear daggy trackies, but I do look a bit dishevelled most days. Why? Because the kids would ruin whatever I was wearing in 10 seconds flat.

Because daggy clothes are more comfortable. Because sometimes I literally do not have 2 minutes to do my hair nicely. Because I am so totally exhausted and busy and consumed with my kids and the housework and everything else that I just don't have the energy to put into myself.

I'm one of those mums
DD always looks gorgeous when we go out, I'm always in jeans and a tshirt.
I haven't been to the hairdresser in 3 months for a few reasons; 1. Being a single mum $ is tight, 2. Being a single mum I'd have to take DD with me (not horrible but not nice and relaxing either)
3. I'd rather take DD to the park or bake cookies with her, something that makes her laugh because that's what makes me happy
I'm happy, she's happy, I don't care what others think

From someone that does their hair and makeup before going anywhere and doesn't wear 'daggy or ill fitting clothing'... What the *****?! It's great that you choose to do all of those things, but that doesn't mean it's wrong for other parents not to.
