I have been dreading this post, for obvious reasons.
But now I have to face the music. Sigh.
Let me tell you how having kids has changed my hygiene (please don’t judge me, please don’t judge me, please don’t judge me):
I started motherhood near a Naval base in Japan. Three weeks postpartum, my husband deployed with his ship and was at sea for a month. I had to figure out how to take care of myself with no extra hands in the house and no family within 6,000 miles. Needless to say, I didn’t spend much time dolling myself up in the powder room.
