Dirty Hairy

Life goals generally have to do with getting finances in order, losing weight, making a great career move, blah blah blah.  My life goal for this year?  Shower at least twice a week.  I know lots of triplet mamas who have their children perfectly scheduled to eat, sleep and poop at the same time. I don't.  I don't really want to either.  I like that we are flexible.  BUT... it does mean that there is always someone awake from about 6am til after 9pm.  This doesn't leave much time for hygiene.

The other day a mother posted that it annoys her when moms say they don't have time to shower.  I'm sorry I annoy you.  I suppose that technically, you are correct.  I do have time to shower.  I could wake up early in the morning before 6 when the first kid is usually up.  I could also stay up a bit later and shower.  I could.  I don't want to.  I want to sleep or lay in bed and read a book for 10 minutes.  It means I'm dirty and hairy.  I'm also a little more easy going and a little less overwhelmed bc I had a few extra minutes of sleep, a few minutes engaging with the actual English language as opposed to the random grunts and sounds that my infants seem to think I should understand.  Sorry I annoy you.


  1. I think it's annoying when mothers of 1 baby say they don't have time to shower. What are they doing the whole time their babies are napping or sleeping? I always have time to shower. Although, often they're the 5 minute quick-the-baby-is-about-to-wake type, so shaving is another matter. ;)

    But, I think when you have nonstop baby from 6 am to 9 pm you totally get excused!

  2. i can smell you all the way over here.
