Just the other day I was scrolling through the message boards of a parenting type website and I came across this post from another mom:

I feel as if I have aged 10 years since having my daughter (she just turned 1), and I feel just utterly HOMELY. I hate looking at myself in the mirror. I hate going and doing any social activities ’cause I feel like I’ve turned into the frumpy old mom.

On that particular day, I could totally relate! There have been many times  that I just felt like my son’s mom.  Not like a woman. Not like an attractive woman. Just mom. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying being mom isn’t good enough. It’s just not the whole of who I am. There’s there’s the professional part of me, the wife, the fashionable me, etc. While sometimes it seems like it’s so much harder to pull myself together and actually look good –  I’m getting much better at it. It just took a while to get here. What are your thoughts? Can you relate?
